Pulaski, 2014

Almost a month several weeks ago, we headed to Mom's for Vickie's retirement weekend from church and then sent Rich home to work while we stayed and played for the week.  

I'm not the overpacker of the family {cough:Rich:cough} but packing for 4 people for 6 days takes a bunch of stuff and some organization, although it doesn't look like it here : 

We got in late Friday night, and after hanging out at Oma's Saturday, went to one of our favorite places on earch Saturday night.  We played in the river. . .

. . . skipped rocks . . .

. . . played in the sand pit . . .

. . . and after grilling out for dinner, enjoyed some sparklers . . .

. . . hula hooped with a float . . .

. . . and enjoyed the fireworks Aunt Poonkin brought.

After church {which I TOTALLY should have photographed because of the incredible cuteness of 2 big boys who had to be like Daddy and wear a tie!!}, we sent Daddy home to work while we played worked on painting Oma's stairs {with water} :

Monday night we headed to Roanoke to meet up with 2 childhood friends and their babies.  The boys had a blast!
The Crew {6, 6, 6, 4, 3, 2, 1}

We were a little tired after playing.
We met up with Amy and Vickie for lunch on Wednesday:

We also played with more friends over at the river, some at our house, and went to the park once, but apparently I didn't get any photographic evidence of those.  Ahhh . . . next time.  

Oh, yeah.  And this happened . . . 

Well, it didn't happen that week, but it was revealed to everyone that week.  #4 is due January 3, 2015!  The shock has worn off and the boys are so excited!  My gut says it's boy #4 . . . we shall see . . .

Paw Patrol Pool Party

The saturday before Hudson's birthday we had his party here at the house.  Luckily the weather held out and was gorgeous - even a little chilly - for his Paw Patrol Pool Party.  I think it's safe to say he - and everyone else - had a blast.

A huge thank to all our friends and family for coming to celebrate Mr. Hudson!  We had a great time!  See you next year!
