"the Forest"

We always enjoy our time in Wake Forest, NC as we love being with Paul's family AND it reminds us of sweet memories from our first two years of marriage. We headed there for the 4th of July week and were able to spend a few days with the entire Akin clan (we all staggered in on different days). So fun. The 4th was spent all day at the pool with some family friends, but unfortunately I neglected to get my camera out until dinner time.

Bath time with cousins is always a wild and crazy time.

One of the days we went to a local children's museum called "Marbles". We left the younger kids at home with the Dad's-which was a good call :) Micah loved it as there was so much to see and to do.

Devouring our lunch with good friends after a long but fun morning at Marble's.

Another highlight of Micah's week was seeing Cars 2 (or "2 movie Cars" as Micah called it for the longest time). I made the mistake of telling Micah back in February that Cars 2 was coming out in June. So, lets just say it was a lonnnngggg 4 months for this precious boy and we were often asked if it was June yet.

We ended the week with some family photos. There are really too many to even show, so I'll just you a quick preview.

Driving back to Alabama and enjoying a Baby Einstein with the headphones actually on (this lasted 5 min).
Thanks Granddaddy and Lottie for a great week with everyone!
