This year instead of heading to the lake for the 4th, we went to Paw-Paw and Nana's house. With Holden and Luke being so little combined with really low lake levels, everyone thought it would be best to stay at the house. I took Hudson to meet Nana the Wednesday before so he got some one on one time with them before the weekend. He LOVED it!! Kelly, Holden, and I went up late Thursday night so we could get in the entire day on Friday. Friday morning we loaded up and went to the Oklahoma City Zoo. They had some really neat things there that our zoo doesn't have. While Daddy and Hudson were feeding catfish (YUCK!), Holden got to relax in the shade with Paw-Paw and Nana.
There are peacocks just walking around the zoo. Crazy!
I didn't get a picture, but they had a stingray pool where Hudson was able to pet stingrays. How cool is that? Then, they had a small Sea World type show with sea lions and seals. Holden sat on Paw-Paw's lap and watched the entire show. TOO CUTE!!!!
Chatting with Paw-Paw after the show. :)
On Saturday, the entire family came over. We spent most of the afternoon swimming and just enjoying family time. It was wonderful! Here is Aunt Fern with Hudson and Holden. She was one happy camper. :)
Hudson wore Paw-Paw out having races in the pool.
While we were getting ready to leave, I caught this sweetness...Paw-Paw was singing and talking to Holden. They were definitely having a moment. :)
It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend!
