Beach Bums - Part 2

The Tucker crew headed down to Orange Beach for the week of  July Fourth.  It was a wonderful trip, where we made so many memories together. We stayed at the Phoenix on the Bay.  This place was awesome! The lazy river, pool, and kid splash pad were definitely one of the highlights of the trip.

 We celebrated not only Independence Day, but two birthdays and some major Tucker family news..... SARA AND ETHAN ARE GOING TO HAVE A BABY! Yay!

Ethan and Sara just arrived at the condo and asked us all to pose for a picture.
Ethan took this picture and told us all to say, "cheese"! 

Next, Sara took a picture so Ethan could get in and told us all, "I'm pregnant!"
and then snapped a picture of our first reaction to the news.  Check out my face and
Gramsie's face! LOL!
Awesome pregnancy revealing story Sara and Ethan! None of us will ever forget it!  Congrats again!

We celebrated Lauren's birthday and Ethan's birthday during the week.  We had a cake waiting for LaLa when she arrived, but we fell asleep before she made it in on Tuesday night.  Will was ready to see his LaLa the next morning!

Thinking about waking her up.....

Yup, I'm going to wake LaLa up!

Wake up LaLa!  

Happy Birthday  LaLa!  We adore you! 
Now, Sara brought a special cake down for Ethan's birthday.  It was pretty awesome and very festive!

Sparklers and confetti poppers!

I think Ethan was saying, "What is that?!"  LOL!

OH yeah!  That cake rocked!

and the sparks continued to fly...

Happy Birthday Uncle E! We love you!
We celebrated the Independence day with some pool time, but decided that trying to fight the dinner crowd with a hungry William was probably not a good idea.  Grandad quickly volunteered to stay at the condo with Will while we went to dinner.  So, we did just that, BUT we made it home in plenty of time to watch the fireworks with our baby boy =)

Two of my favorite people!

Happy 4th of July baby!

And we spent a great deal of time at the POOL!  So much fun....  =)

And if we weren't at the pool, we were just hanging out, enjoying every moment of family!

FYI:  He did this completely on his own.  He cleared
out a cabinet and that was HIS spot for the entire week! 

This cracks me up!  

He loved it!

Love his little smile =) 

My child LOVES spaghetti.  It's by far his favorite food right now.
Grandad, Gramsie, and LaLa took him to eat spaghetti one night,
and he was loving it!

William loves his Gramsie!

He loves her so much that he shares his cheese puffs with

Honk, Honk!

I love the way William is looking at Grandad in this picture!
