4th of July weekend

We started off the weekend in Magnolia with this shaggy haired boy. He had asked to grow his hair out long but the summer heat finally got the best of him.
Here is the back view!
Here is what he looks like now after I got the clippers to him! A much cooler summer do!
Uncle Brent bought them a pool and we HAD to fill it up right away. They spent all Friday afternoon and most of Saturday and Sunday in the pool. They have only had 5 swim lessons but they are all swimming under water now!! YEAH!!!
C under water!!
M finally working past her fears and going under water. We can't keep her out of the water now. She is probably the best swimmer now.
Z, C, and M would like to say, "Thank you Uncle Brent!"
Z doing water ballet.
Cool man!
Maggie Moo!
PePaw and MeMaw trying to stay cool in the shade while watching the kids swim.
Aunt Onie, Aunt Ina, and Gran hanging out in Uncle Brent's new shed.
Mr. Billy Bert and Uncle Burch talking "farm" stuff.
Ben and Uncle Brent fixing their lunch plates. We had BBQ, ribs, chicken, sausage, hot dogs, hamburgers, veggies, baked beans, potato salad, deviled eggs, salsa, sausage cheese dip, casseroles, and TONS of desserts. YUMMY!!!!!
Lunch time!
More lunch photos
Noelia and Kevin taking Gaines for his first 4-wheeler ride. Between breaks in the pool, we all took 4-wheelers rides.
C posing on top of the hay bails. Shortly after this picture was taken, he was jumping from bail to bail and suddenly disappeared.........He fell off of the back of one of the bails and rolled down the hill. He didn't make a sound. He just climbed back up and said, "I missed!".
M showing her strong muscles on top of the hay bails.
Z, not so sure if she is well balanced, but posed for a picture anyway.
C's feet at the end of the day! Love the flip flop marks! (notice his little nubby big toe nail that is finally growing back after his surgery!)
The girls feet.

We had a blast in Magnolia seeing family, eating good food, and catching up on each other's lives.
