4th of July Fun

So, my day of silence for Cohen turned in to almost a month. I'd love to say that I just got my laptop back and have just been able to blog, but that isn't necessarily the case. I got it back a good 2 1/2 weeks ago. We have just been so busy & I am suffering from a serious case of writer's block/laziness.

I guess I need to start back around Independence Day. On the 4th of July I turned 31. Yes I did! How did I get there? I still don't feel "old enough" to be 31. Shouldn't I feel older, more mature, something different? Some days I feel like a 20 year old. Anyway, we drove to Alabama to celebrate with my family. The best thing my aunt & uncle ever did(aside from raising a wonderful daughter, right Britt) was to put in a pool. We had SO much fun. Hadley & Kayleigh were in the pool from 11 am to 5 pm and only got out once to eat lunch.

Aren't they just precious?!?! One thing that is a requirement for summertime in Grand Bay is WATERMELON! Grand Bay has THE BEST watermelon & that's coming from the 1993 Watermelon Queen...Had is definitely my girl. She tried it for the 1st time and couldn't get enough. First, she stole nana's piece and then wanted her own too.

When it was finally time to go home the Princess WAS NOT happy. She loves her Kayleigh Bug & was not ready to leave. She cried herself to sleep while D & I went to pack up the car. Too bad I didn't get a picture of that.

Such a summery post! I love the last picture of her eating the watermelon on the side of the pool. She obviously LOVED the pool so much that she couldn't get out...too cute!!
