Happy Father's Day!!!

We celebrated Father's Day on Saturday with Rusty's side of the family.  We met for lunch at Mr. P's, a family favorite. After that we went to his parents' house and relaxed. And of course, little man was the center of attention! I took my camera in but forgot to get a picture before Hudson fell asleep. : (

Saturday night we spent the night with my parents.  The guys played golf Sunday morning while the Mommas stayed home with the babies.  We grilled out for lunch, relaxed some more, then headed back home.

When we got home, we decided it would be a good time to go to the pool.  This is the second time he has been, but this time was much better with the baby float. He was SO relaxed!  He whimpered just for a second while we were getting him in the float, probably because he is not use to the cold water.  After that, he kicked back in the float like an old pro!
We played in the pool for a while, then got him out, dried off, and changed into a dry diaper.  It was still warm outside, so I just let him lie flat in his stroller (LOVE his stroller) under the pavilion and relax.  He laughed and kicked and played, then passed out. I had his stroller turned away from the sun and I pulled up a lounged chair and sunbathed beside him.  Rusty relaxed under the pavilion behind us.  We are finding ways to do all the things we want to do, even with a baby! It just takes a little more time and effort, but it is well worth it! We really enjoy all of these "firsts".  He is developing so fast! 

We have booked a beach trip for late September and we are SO excited! Rusty and I are ready to get out of Birmingham and take our big guy on his first beach vacay! By then it will be much cooler, less crowded, and hopefully he will be sitting up by then.

Here are two videos of Rusty and Hudson playing after bath time last night.  Hudson is trying so hard to repeat our sounds!

We hope you had a great first Father's Day, Daddy! We love you!
