4th of July in Gainesville

We started our 4th of July holiday this year by making a trip to Gainesville for my dad's family reunion at the lake. Abs wore the perfect little lady bug outfit.

"Mommy, do you think I'll need my brush?"

As soon as we got there, it was lunch time. Fried fish and hush puppies for us. Baby food was on the menu for Abby, but as you can see, Nana had other plans. I'm not sure what it was that she was feeding her. By the look of it, I don't think David knew either. ;)

Here they are, "The Little Rascals".

Abby loves to hear Pops make the "chicken" sound.
I'm not sure what he was saying to her here, but she looks so interested.

Yep, proof that even Pops was feeding her things he wasn't supposed to.

"Okay Nana. I'm ready the lake!"
"Bring your Sonic, I'll drink it during my swim breaks."

We had a great time seeing lots of family, some that we hadn't seen in a while. And for some, it was their first time to see Little Miss. As kids, we would come here each 4th of July. I used to look forward to swimming and playing in the lake. As a mom now, the lake isn't all it that anymore. It's more work for me. More clothes, more sunscreen, no nap, fear of drowning, gross lake water, etc.
All in all, it was still fun and we had a good time!
