watching the parade and cheering on the firetrucks, the high school bands, and local businesses.

luke figures out what a local parade is all about!


charleston 2011

we went on our second annual bridges/johnson trip to charleston, south carolina and had a blast. luke and will are on the verge of turning two in october and they had a blast at the beach, pool, and hanging around the house together. we all enjoyed a week of fun, sun, and relaxation and can't wait for our third annual trip in 2012!

this was the house we stayed in this year. it was gorgeous and had every amenity we could ask for, including a pool in the back yard, an outdoor shower, and tons of outdoor toys for the boys.

we went for a walk on the beach one early evening and luke had so much fun playing in the water. he definitely loves the beach!

luke and will are ready for the beach and could actually be mistaken for twins too - same rash guards, same crocs!

luke takes a dip in the little pool that daddy made in the sand.

best buds.

and after a long day of playing in the sun and surf, luke and will like to relax with some trains, cars, and trucks. a perfect way to unwind!

luke loves the beach and dancing with his shadow. enjoy the show!
