What I've Been Up To

I turned 5 months old August 30th

Mama had fun playing photographer
I found a new favorite toy

Mama sets it up in the kitchen so I can watch her cook

I'm learning all about Clemson Football

Mama and Daddy say I might be the good luck charm the Tigers have been looking for

I started eating solids...sorta

Avocado was my first food. Not sure if I liked it or the spoon better, but I enjoyed the experience! 

All this new stuff is exhausting!

Race Weekend

It was a non stop weekend for us! Lawton had a race up in Fort Collins on Saturday, and on Sunday we went out to cheer on the professional bike racers at the first annual Quizzno's Pro Cycling Challenge. Logan loved being outside and was a great cheerleader

I love watching Daddy race!

The race started with a swim in Horsetooth Resevoir     

Then we watched him start the 12.2 mile mountain bike
 Fuel stop at the stroller before the run

Then quickly back to work
The finish line was a slip-n-slide. Very nice on such a hot day!

So proud of her Daddy. He came in 8th in his age group of 33

The lovely cheerleaders

Our first viewing point for the Pro Cycling Race in Morrison, CO. The racers would come down the road that's behind us.in this shot.

Our second vantage point in downtown Denver. One of the racers, George Hincapie, lives in Greenville, SC. We brought a flag to represent the home state

Somehow we got a picture of George. A huge feat considering how fast they were whizzing by!

Logan and the crowd. There were A LOT of people who came out for the race. She didn't always love how loud the cheering got when the racers came by.

And a bath to clean off the day before bed. Good weekend!!

4 month photo shoot

Even though she'll be 5 months next week, we have yet to get these pictures up. So almost one month late, here's what Lo was looking like as she turned 4 months old! Mama could not resist these leg warmers even though it was close to 90 degrees that day.

I love this face!

Visiting Hilton Head!

So it only took me a month to finish posting out vacation pics....I'm terrible about this blog thing! I'm sorry to all of you who have been checking and seeing nothing new.
After the Charleston half of our trip, we headed to HHI to see Nana J and Pops. Again we were able to enjoy the beach and the pool. It was a perfect ending to our vacation!
Loved getting to spend time with Nana J at her house!

Pops couldn't get enough of his grand daughter

Lovin' some HHI beach time

Pops lovin' Lo while she napped on the beach

She slept like this for 2 hours!

A dip in Nana's pool after the beach

Every baby needs to take a bath in the sink!

Ready for her post-bath-baby massage

Mama's bestie Keri came to visit too. Aunt Kiki loves Lo very much!

After our walk on the beach with Pops and Gracie
Our last night on the island we had a beach picnic and a family photo shoot

We had so much fun with Nana J!

A perfect sunset to end out perfect trip!

Charleston Trip

We were fortunate enough to get to go home to SC for 9 days at the end of July to visit family.  First we hit up the annual Davis Beach week on The Isle of Palms. We got to see Nana Nann and Poppa Sam, and meet all of Daddy's extended family. 

Logan's first pane ride. She did a great job, and was a big hit with the flight attendants!
Papa Sam was very happy to see Logan

Meeting Uncle Landon

Uncle Lyle and his fiance Aunt Morgan. Can't wait to come back for their wedding in December!

QT with Nana Nann

Visiting with Daddy's immediate family at Uncle Landon and Aunt Natalie's house

Meeting my cousin Harper. We were both very interested in one another

Loving some time with Aunt Elle. So many people to meet!

Lo getting her toes in the ocean for the first time. She wasn't quite sure what to think about it.

First family beach shot!

Chillin' in the sand

Logan's  cousins, Davis and Maggie, loving on her. They are very excited to have a new baby in their house in a little over a month.

Logan with her cousin Carter at the pool

Daddy's Cousin Will and his girlfriend Stephanie needed some chaperoning. Logan stepped up to the challenge

All the sublets with Uncle Mark. He just got back from MD Anderson where he underwent surgery to remove a tumor in his brain. We were so glad that he was able to join us at the beach, and that he was doing so well. Aunt L Beth got the kiddos all cool do-rags to wear so they could match Uncle Mark.

Uncle Mark has a special bond with all the Sublets, and Logan loved meeting him for the first time

Maggie is going to be a great big sister!

The annual Davis' bingo game. Such a fun tradition!
The Davis Sub-Adult Ladies

We even got to meet/see some of Mama's old friends from high school. Trina has a little boy named Jack, and Kelsie's daughter is Sloan. Those two kids are only a month apart and will be 1 this year. Mama hasn't seen those girls in 7+ years
