F.F.F. (Forced Family Fun!)

Growing up my Dad used to say, "Get ready for some F.F.F. this week!" We were usually on our way to the beach or traveling on some vacation, and he thought this was the funniest line ever! Isn't great how much our parent's embarrassed us, I hope to do to the same to Bradley;)

The Fourth of July was definitely filled with some F.F.F., but we might just have to call it Family, Friends, and Fun from now on. My parents live on a lake a few minutes away from our house. So, we spent a great deal of the fourth over at their house visiting with family and playing in the water. Before the weekend got started we grilled out with one of Chris's best friends Trent and his wife Debbie. Much of the night was spent around the kitchen island talking and laughing about different stories. We did some tubing, water skiing, and played in the lake. On Saturday we went down to the farm to celebrate with Kim and Adam, so it was a really great weekend. Here are some of the pics...

Chris and Trent just hanging out!

Me on the tube (I haven't been in a few years since getting pregnant. I was so sore afterwards! What a workout...and my Dad was definitely trying to throw us around!)

My sister, Lindsay, her husband Tim, and little Sammy!

What a sweetie pie!

I just had to cuddle with him for a while on the dock.

Bradley and my Mom (Gigi), as she is now being called by the boys.

My younger cousin Kristine getting ready for her tubing adventure.

Bradley's favorite part of the whole weekend...
Hanging out on the kayak! My Dad took him in it, and he just loved floating around.
His legs just need to grow a few more feet and he will actually fit!

I love that. FFF. I will add that to our vocabulary if you don't mind. My upcoming vacation is a FFF, for sure.
