festivities were quite traditional.
time with friends at their beautiful lake house.
grilling out and great summer side dishes.
and little ones all over the place.
best buddies playing
youngest of the 3 older kids
huntley - looking just like daddy
the youngest baby of all
sitting in the shade
then came the excitement.
august had an allergic reaction to something (possibly suntan lotion).
his eyes were almost swollen shut in the matter of minutes.
after frantically calling doctors (yes more than one was called!),
getting some benadryl from the drug store,
and taking a dose,
the hives started all over his body.
this is what he looked like after the medicine started working.
just like will smith in hitch.
thank you to all of our wonderful friends for looking up numbers,
running travis to the store,
wiping suntan lotion off our bodies (to prevent more from getting in the eyes),
and just being concerned and supportive.
you guys are the best!
on the way home we saw the biggest turtle ever.
travis called it an alligator turtle.
it looked mean enough to bear that name.
