Happy 4th of July...2 weeks late!

Independence Day weekend was full of a lot of travel, but alot of fun too!  In fact, I don't even remember what days we went where at this point.

I think we started the weekend out with a cookout up at our friends' house, Jennifer and Danny Jackson.  I was  so excited about getting out of the house and being social with friends!  I was trying to time everything just right by changing William and having him fed so that he would he hopefully fall asleep on the ride up to their house.  William had other plans...he screamed the entire time we were at their house.  I spent the majority of the time in Jennifers bedroom trying to rock him.  Then Dustin took a turn with him, while I ate.  Jennifer smoked a Boston Butt and it was delicious!  Soon after I finished eating we loaded up and headed home.  We were only there an hour!  It was definitely a change from the cookouts we you used to share with friends! 

 We headed to Guntersville Saturday morning early to see MawMaw and PawPaw hanging out on the boat.  We cooked lunched and enjoyed the delicious food.  The weather was nice, and William was in a good mood.  He played and then napped.

Next, we traveled to Gramsie and Grandad's house for a cookout for Uncle Ethan's birthday.  There was a crowd of family there to celebrate Ethan's birthday and meet William.  It was great fun!  By the end of the day, we were all tired and stuffed!

Such a sweet moment here...Grandmother Ruth is holding William

On the 4th of July we went down to the Ellard's river lot to see some friends.  It was nice, except for the all the rain that morning!  William was a little a fussy when we arrived, but I fed him and then he fell asleep.  Aunt Lauren went along with us, and she was a great help!!  She held William while he napped, and it allowed Dustin and I some time to mingle with friends. ( I sure wish we had brought her with us to Jennifer and Danny's house!)  After leaving the Ellards we went back to Gramsie and Grandad's so they could love on William.  We hung out there for the rest of the day.

It was a wonderful weekend full of friends and family! William definitely enjoyed his first 4th of July holiday!
