The River House/ 4th of July

This 4th of July, we went to Steven's grandparent's river house. We love going to the River House and have been every year since we started dating. It is so relaxing and fun, and we love visiting with all the Luck side of the family. This year there was a record number of people in the house because of all the grandbabies, and the Luck seniors managed to host 20 of us. It was lots of fun for Adelyn to play with all of her cousins, 2nd cousins, aunts, uncles, great aunts and uncles, grandparents and great grandparents...whoo lots of family! It was great fun, and we are excited for many more years of 4th of July fun at the River!!

Fun Family Pic by the river

The Asher Family (Steven's aunt, uncle and cousins). The girls were lots of help with Adelyn all weekend long.

Addie and her daddy

Finally, a picture of Adelyn and me :)

Pop Rock and his two grand kids. This pic was taken right before little Rob almost pushed Adelyn out of Pop's arms b/c he did not want to share his Pop, understandably.

weeeee, sliding down the water slide!

I just absolutely love this picture.
Adelyn - "Mom, can you believe him!", Rob - "What?!? What did I do?"

Ellie Asher was so much help with Ava and Adelyn. Adelyn loved playing with her second cousins.

Adelyn was "helping" Pop with his crossword puzzle

Adelyn loves her dad (Steven was whispering to her about how she needs to be a bit more modest...)

Very Nautical

Pop watching Adelyn as she ventured towards the water. There were a lot of new things to explore at the River house (And yes, Adelyn does have her clothes on her head, it is her new thing...don't ask me why)

Steven's Aunt Allison and her daughter Ava. I love this pic. Allison is 8 months pregnant, can you tell? Doesn't she look great!! And she was so brave to come.

Adelyn had lots of fun playing in the baby pool with everyone. Madison was great with keeping her head out of the water. I, on the other hand, was a bit slower to grab her as she slipped, so I guess she got used to "swimming" in the baby pool.

Grami playing with her grand babes. It doesn't get much better than that for her. :)

Being loved on by Aunt Catherine!

The cute couple :) We all love Julia

Adelyn loved playing with Andy!

Fun with Dee and Sam

Two weeks ago, Adelyn's Great Grandparents, DeeDee and Sam, stopped by Charlottesville on their way up to Ohio. Adelyn and I went down to visit with them and were able to spend a lot of fun time with family. Unfortunately, a day before they arrived to Charlottesville, the crazy "micro burst" happened and so my parents had no electricity, cable, or internet. It was definitely a hot and dark visit, but still lots of fun!

Swimming with DeeDee

Grampa Sam was showing Adelyn pictures and teaching her how to use the camera

Adelyn also loved playing with uncle Skip, as always

Aunt Ashley is Home!!!

This is kind of a late post b/c Ashley got home a month ago, but we are just so excited to have her back. She is back in the US for good now, and Adelyn has had so much fun playing with her auntie. We are thrilled to be spending lots more time with her this year.

Watching the world cup together. Ashley is already training Adelyn to be a future soccer player.
