4th of July

We got back from our travels just in time for 4th of July festivities.  We swam and watched fireworks the night of the 3rd.  We spent the evening of the July 4th at a party at our new friends, the Schuhknecht's house.

 And Saturday the 5th we hit the lake.  Ranjo and Lindsay were camping, so we stayed for supper and fireworks too. 
ME loves all things water.  She even tubed for the first time with Mommy!

Happy birthday, America!

A Week at Mia's House

 On our way back from the beach, I dropped the kids off at Mia's house and headed to Dallas to help out my best friend, Michelle.  I got to snuggle with Brant, the first of the quintuplets to come home, while she went to be with the other 4 still in the NICU.  Since I have been home 3 of the girls have been released.  Now they have 4 home, and one in the NICU.  Baby Rayleigh should be home in a week or so.  Craziness!  Please remember the Seals family: Steven, Michelle, Brady, Mia, Tessa, Brant, Gracie, and Rayleigh in your prayers any time you think of them.  Like for the next 18 years or so. ;)  Anyway, while I was in Dallas on baby duty, ME and Rhett got to hang with Mia.  And that means getting to spend some quality time at Nanny and Pa's house.  They had a blast!  Thank you, Mia!
Nanny has the biggest and most beautiful hydrangeas I have ever seen.

Pa rescued this kitten from underneath a repairman's truck.  Needless to say, ME and the kitten attached themselves to each other.  She wanted to bring him home sooo bad. She loves animals and would be a very responsible pet owner, I believe.  But Mommy is just not ready for another critter ;)  She said that the kitten thought she was his mother.  She also named him Lucky, because Pa said he was lucky to be alive.  Poor thing was starving and covered in filth and fleas.  Rhett thought he looked like a Mouse.  So he became Lucky Mouse Harriman.

Pa's beautiful garden...I probably came home with 30 tomatoes and ate almost every one by myself!

Beach Pics

Just a whole bunch of pics of my cute kiddos on the should be noted that I had to "touch up" each one of Rhett because he had an ugly scab on his nose from a run-in with the pavement at the campsite.
