A Chance to Relax

For the first time in a month and a half, we were finally able to enjoy some down time.  My brother and his wife had a small pool party for the Fourth of July holiday, and we were more than happy to attend!  Clayton is still quite weak and not up to a lot of heat, so he stayed with Granny and Pop and had just as good a time as the rest of us (he was needing some Granny-bonding BIG TIME!). 
This was Jackson's second time in the pool and for a kid who loves the bathtub, was still quite nervous.  We figured out he just didn't like not being grounded, because once he got to hang out on the steps, he was happy-go-lucky and Mr. Social. 

It felt so good to get out and doing something different for a change.  We've been so wrapped up in getting Clayton well that I was just about to go stir-crazy!  I am so thankful he is on the mend, since that means outings like this will happen more and more often for our family!

Hello to you all in Arkansas from all of us in Florida.
I've been following Clayton's progress and again want to say you are all in our prayers. I am SO thankful you're having a reprieve and a brief time to relax and enjoy your family. May God continue to give you and Brian continued strength, and Clayton strenghth and healing.
We love and miss you all.
Aunt Suzanne
