I Almost Forgot...

Beckham kneeboarded (with Brendon) for the first time. He loved it.

Water Baby

We spent the 4th of July weekend (our favorite holiday!) on the houseboat at Lake Oroville. As we learned in Hawaii - Beckham LOVES water. He had a blast. It didn't matter that he didn't get any naps the whole weekend - he was in good spirits the whole time as long as he was near the water. His good mood may also have been a result of his crawling around the floor sneaking junk food off everyone's plates. He developed a love of bbq potato chips and licorice this weekend. His mama's boy for sure!
Beckham loved to stand at the baby gates at the back door and look at the water and the other boats driving by.
Beckham and Daddy feeling the wind in their hair!
Drinking water like a big boy with Grandma Lynn.
Splashing in the lake!!

Just chillin' in the water. I think adult life jackets need that relaxing neck support.
The whole fam damily. My little brother surprised us by driving down from Utah spontaneously so we were all together. How wonderful.
One of our favorite things to do is play "human chain" behind the boat - whoever can't hold on (the boat is moving slowly) is mocked and teased as the weakest link!
