This first set of pics is from July 4th, which we spent in Thyatira, Mississippi with our friends Jeff and Angie. We had a barbeque and swam in the pool. Pretty low-key, but we enjoyed our visit with them.
Alex and Jesse had a great time swimming in the pool together!
Taking a break with Daddy
Alex and Mackenzie were so happy to be reunited after five whole weeks apart! Mackenzie didn't hardly want to let Alex out of her sight the first few days. I think she thought we might whisk him off to the other side of the world again while her back was turned!
Two all-American kiddos!
I love this picture!
Park Avenue (our church) hosted a community ice-cream social with a petting zoo for the kiddos. We invited the Gearsons to come with us, and everyone had a great time.
Alex and MommyThe next week, we went to Chuck E Cheese with the Gearsons. It was Alex's first time to go. He was a little bit overwhelmed at first, but he had a great time. He keeps asking when we can go again! Unfortunately, not anytime soon, since it was rather an expensive outing!
A game of air hockey
I love the look of intense concentration (on both their faces!)
Posing for a picture with Chuck himself
He was so excited when he realized he got to turn in his tickets at the end of the night and get a prize -- a new Hot Wheels car!
Special thanks to Laurel for letting me bum a bunch of the above pictures from her Facebook albums!
