4th of July

On Thursday afternoon, we packed up the car and headed to Lake Texoma to spend the 4th with family and some dear family friends at the cabin. We got there just in time for Hudson to eat dinner, play with Paw-Paw, Nana, Uncle Skip, Aunt Janet, and Nathan, and then go to bed. Aunt Shani and Uncle Geoff arrived later that evening and were just able to peek at Hudson while he was sleeping. We woke up the next day, ready to get out on the water and celebrate the 4th with the other thousands of people at the lake. By the time we got sandwiches made, everything loaded up, and got set up on the sandy beach it was time for Hudson's nap and he let us know about it. So...back to the cabin Kelly, Hudson and I went. By the time he woke up, it was raining really hard, so we weren't able to go back out on the water that day. We ended up watching fireworks on TV that night because Hudson was snoozing away. He didn't even wake up at the locals setting off fireworks!

The next morning Nana and I were playing with Hudson when he made his first bug discovery...a roly poly! He didn't hesitate picking it up and then he promptly tried to eat it!!! We kept having to take the roly poly out of his hands and put it back down. It was hilarious! We finally had to save the roly poly by taking him outside to set him free.

We finally made it out on the water for a few hours on Saturday. Hudson splashed in the water, played in his blow up toy crab, and played in the sand. He didn't quite know what to make of the sand when it would stick to his hand. He made funny faces and would hold out his hand and just look at me and then at his hand until I would wash it off. Too cute!

It was a wonderful 4th of July and another wonderful weekend at the lake. We can't wait to go back in a few weeks!
