North Carolina

Immediately following the Anderson reunion we headed a bit further south stopping in Charlotte. We were able to see my parents, my sister, and my nieces. We stayed in a hotel (which is always a highlight for the boys thanks to the elevator buttons, pool, and breakfast bar) near my sister’s house.

Again, the kids had a blast playing with cousins they don’t see very often. We had a great (busy!) week visiting and catching up with so many family members from each side.

Family Reunion

Once again the Anderson clan gathered together in Pigeon Forge for the annual reunion.  This year, our family along with three other families stayed in a chalet separate from the main gathering place.  It wasn’t as noisy, which was nice, however we did have to worry about being eaten by bears as we walked up and down the wooded hill.

The boys had a great time getting to know their cousins a bit better!

Cul-de-sac Party

We always have a kickball or baseball game going on in the cul-de-sac. The kids love it! They stayed up until 12:30 AM playing kickball on this night.
Dixie is the sweetest dog. The cul-de-sac wouldn’t be the same without her (though I suppose it would be less noisy)!
Isaac and Savannah. She adores him!
Sparklers!
Such a fun night, as usual!

Drive-In Movie

Warren had never been to a drive-in movie and I hadn’t been since childhood. Last week, we went to see Cars 2 with some friends and we laughed at the whole experience. I’m not sure I could tell you what the movie was about. But, I can tell you we had the craziest lady behind us with an extremely loud laugh who found everything funny, kids ran around on a sugar-highs from candy, rude people drove around the packing lot during the movie, and  the trees lit up with fire-flies which was more entertaining to our boys than the movie.  I don’t regret going at all, but it’s clear to us why drive-in movies a mostly a thing of the past.

Summer Fun

Life is good!
Cannon Ball!!!
Chasing after the dive-sticks.
Ethan and Isaac loved playing “shark” with Daddy.  They were pretending to cut or shoot themselves and  fall into the water. It seemed a little violent to me, but they said the shark wouldn’t come after them if they weren’t bleeding. Of course… (Can you tell they love to watch shows like “Nature” and “Nova?”)
All this pool fun made Lincoln “soooo hungwy.”

Slingshot

Isaac attempted to make a slingshot out of sticks and rubber-bands, but was left frustrated with the end result. He asked his daddy for a little help and together they created a slingshot just perfect in the eyes of Isaac.

Hailey and Lincoln found the saw to be a little too noisy for their ears.
Here it is! Isaac proudly showed off his new toy to everyone and anyone he could find.
The only problem was that his little brother kept eating the ammunition!
