Fun Summer Pictures

Here is a collection of pictures taken over the past couple of months. Charlie is definently "all boy" and loves to run, climb, pull the dog's tail, make a mess and play with things he is not supposed to play with!

Uncle John's Visit

Uncle John came to visit last week. Charlie and he had a lot of fun together. John was a big help with Charlie and carried him almost everywhere we went. He even learned how to get him out of his carseat. Charlie knows how to say "John" and followed him around the house to watch him get ready, sleep, eat, etc. It is always hard when he leaves to go back to Mississippi, but we look forward to the next visit!

North Carolina Cousins Came to Visit

Charlie LOVED having his cousins from North Carolina come visit two weekends in a row! We went to the Jacksonville Zoo and out to eat several times. We had the most fun playing together at the house. Sharing toys was a new endeavor for Charlie, but I think he handled it fairly well. The thing he loved sharing the most, was his faithful dog, Jack. Charlie and his cousins chased Jack all around the house and backyard. We even tried to have a photo shoot of them all together....Charlie didn't quite cooperate.

After they left, Charlie kept looking for them for a couple of days. Jack was so tired, he slept for those two days! I know Charlie can't wait to see them again soon!

Happy 4th of July!

Charlie went to his first parade in Keystone Heights, Florida, this 4th of July. Only in Keystone, is the parade led by a cowboy on a bull, accompanied by a dog and 2 geese! Charlie loved the potato (notice only one potato fry) dipped in ketchup, seeing his Roy cousins, aunts and uncles, and playing with the freebies thrown out by passing floats! He didn't even cry when the firetruck sirens blared, the roadster car engines revved and the cannon boomed! It was really hot, but it was a lot of fun. After the parade, we went out to the lake to cookout and swim. Charlie even jumped off the dock! What a fun 4th of July!
