For the July 4th holiday we often head up to Cashiers, NC and visit my parents mountain house. You guys LOVED every minute of exploring the wilderness up there! We took golf cart rides all over Bridge Creek and would get out and explore each new area. We saw bunnies (which you guys both call “hop hops”) nibbling on clover, baby toads down by the big pond (“ribbits”), and wild turkeys running for cover when they saw us coming in the golf cart. We even got to see dump trucks and diggers working at the top of the mountain! I think my favorite part was driving around with you guys in the golf cart in our laps calling, “Here hop hops….here hop hops…”
I wasn’t sure how you guys would feel about seeing and hearing your first fireworks, but you loved them and kept asking for more! We went to the Village Green in Cashiers, danced and listened to music and watched your first set of fireworks. You guys were troopers and hung in there even though it was past your bedtime. The next day we played outside all day! The covered bridge leading into Bridge Creek was a big hit!Uh oh! Cody “fall down”!
Both of you ran back and forth over the bridge! We also found rocks and threw them over the side to watch the go “kerplunk” into the creek below!
Cody, you loved to walk on the balance beam down the bridge…Next we went down to the big pond and ran around like crazy!Avett had fun sliding down the Adirondack chair foot rest.Cody, you found sweet little tiny toads and wanted to “hold it”… Then, you found some Black Eyed Susan wildflowers and had some fun!Avett, you worked up an appetite and came back to the porch to eat a snack with your buddy Frei… Cody, you are very focused on potty training right now. Washing your hands afterwards is very important…Our friend Tammy came to see us and brought you guys the sweetest little onesies! Here you are modeling them for her before bedtime!Lastly, we took our annual picture of both of you with the Tyre twins. They are 1 day older than you and live in Atlanta and have a vacation home in Cashiers, NC just around the corner from Nana & Papa’s house. Here is a side by side pic of all of you for the last 2 years!It is unbelievable how much you have grown in the last two years. We love all of you!
