4th of July Weekend

So yeah, the 4th was almost 2 weeks ago, but things have been busy around here, so posting some pictures has been delayed...until now!

So here ya go, a recap of the Holiday events starting with an impromptu photo session in the backyard, followed by bubbles.

Cutest crooked smile i've ever seen!
love this kid, look at that grin :)

"oh wait Dad, let me adjust my shades."

"oh no Dad, the bubbles are all gone"

On Monday we went over to Aunt Pat's for brunch. Grey and cousin Evan were being quite Patriotic...until Grey's pinwheel thingy stopped spinning.

Here's Grey hugging Ev, Any chance he gets to hug him, he does. Im not sure Evan likes it as much as Grey, Lets say he tolerates it... most of the time.

After brunch we headed over to the local "carnival" where Grey quickly spotted the swing thingy, and pointed us in the right direction. Although it was a really nice family event for the community, I swear it seemed like every ride was a "jumpy thing", not exactly ideal for Grey. So Grey rode the 7 times, and he loved it!
Superman indeed!

And of course because the sun was out, we had to hit grandma and pop's pool! Here's Grey and I exploring the "waterfall"

And Finally to cap off the eveing we decided to give fireworks a try this year. We weren't sure if the noise would be too much for Grey, but it turns out he loves fireworks! Here he is before the show, getting excited!

The family enjoying the show.

Grey watching the Grand Finale with Grandma and Grandpa Gibbs.

So i'll end this post with a little video montage recapping the day.

Hope everyone's having a wonderful summer! it's been great here in Michigan.

love to all,

Andy, Leigh, Grey.

Fun! Those suspenders look so cute! I've thought about getting some to help keep Zach's pants up when he's crawling. I don't know if that's what you use them for, but they look darling on him!

Gracious that boy just amazes the words out of my mouth. :) Love it!!!! Him walking and then standing to play with the GI joes (while in his roozies) ---- priceless. I needed that. At cars ortho. appt on Tues. I had to listen to the dr. pretty much write out walking for us. He's not not one to say it wont happen but he was being realistic. He's an L2 so those muscles are not there he said. I left with a hope, and that hope was in large part because of sweet, strong Grey.
Do I realize we may not, of course. But I am going to fight fight fight. :)
Love ya guys!!
