4th of July!

As Maureen said in her blog, we continued our tradition of heading to Wintergreen for the 4th of July.  This year was a little different because we had two babies with us!  So, we didn't head up for the incredible fireworks we have seen up there the past few years, but we watched some on TV and enjoyed hanging out with the family. 

This was Olivia's first trip to Wintergreen and I must say, the trip was very successful!  She was a champion all weekend.  We started her on Zantac last week for some reflux that has been bothering her and I think it really worked.  She slept so well down there and allowed Lee and I to catch up on some much needed rest.  She literally slept through the night all 4 nights we were there.  Unreal!  I just wish she had continued that trend at home. 

Everybody pitched in and made food for the weekend (I made cookies which were pre-made so all I did was bake them).  Hey, what do you want from me?  Lee made dinner on Friday, made coleslaw for Saturday (and for weeks to follow) and cooked the sliders and dogs for Sunday night.  Andy smoked ribs for Saturday night.  There were lots of side dishes that everybody pitched in to create as well! 

It was a lot of fun to spend the weekend with Adam and celebrate his 10 month birthday!  We realized the next day that his 10 month birthday was Olivia's 10 week birthday!  Maureen made an awesome cake for Adam's day, although he didn't get to eat any.  We enjoyed it though!!

There were many pictures taken over the weekend.  Here are a few!

A great time was had by all and we look forward to next year already!
