Back in the Motherland

The Family Edwards' made the trek down to the pivot of the universe that is Marion, SC over the 4th of July holiday.

It was a wonderful visit and much love was showered on all us.  Not to state the obvious but Robbie and Anna Helen were the stars of the show.  The big milestone of the visit was the selection of Grandparent names for Mom and Dad.   DRUM ROLE . . . . the winning names are Nana and Pop.  Robbie called them both by their new names and they seem to fit.

We had a great 4th of July with a visit to Uncle Joey's (or as Robbie calls him JOOOOOO) pool capped off with the most American of events - the cookout.  Hamburgers, hotdogs and Italian sausage for everyone with homemade peach ice cream as the cherry on top followed by the Capital 4th on PBS ( I can't believe I just said that).

On Friday we drove down to Brookgreen Garden to visit the Zoo - a little closer to a petting zoo but still had a good time.  It was a good day spent with Dad and Mom and Aunt Paula   (Robbie's named her Apa).  It was a little hot but we survived and them came back by Murrell's  Inlet for lunch.

It is always a blessing to spend time with family.
