4th of July in West Point

Since Labor Day weekend is just a few days away, I figured it's probably time to blog about the 4th of July. :)  (Hey...a lot has been going on!)

Since Travis was in Florida at the Atlantic Center for the Arts (a 3 week residency), I decided it would be a perfect opportunity to head back to NC for a few weeks.  The nice thing about working for an internet company is that I can head home a few times a year and work from NC!  Mom flew up to Boston and drove down with me so Toby could come too.  (I have the best mom.)  It was a LONG drive, but fun spending 16.5 hours chatting with mamma.  Toby got a brand new seat belt for the trip and everything!

I was MOST excited to go to West Point (Virginia) over the 4th.  My uncle and aunt live there on the York River in the house my dad grew up in.  I haven't been in waaaaay too long, so it was so nice to have a long weekend to spend with everyone there.  There was a house FULL - the NC Colberts (Mom, Dad, Mark and me), the VA Colberts (Kem, Sandra, Kemper, Kristyn, and Kyle), and my grandparents!  If that wasn't enough, all the pets came too - 4 dachshunds (Toby, Riley, Chloe, and Bo), Mark's new boxer mix puppy, Kem & Sandra's 2 mini shelties, their goat, "Gotus", and several ducks.  Here are a few (who am I kidding...a bunch of) pictures from the weekend!

 And now...for the cute "dogs playing on the beach pictures"...

 Needless to say, we had a GREAT time and I can't wait to go back!
