Then we went to Matt's family to open with his brothers and sisters and their families. Hunter loved trying to figure out the Bop It game...

When people come over...this is where he automatically goes. He is either wanting to show the guest the tree or he thinks he can get away with pulling the ornaments off since we will be distracted with the guest.

Grammy took him on his first ride down the big boy slide.... Hunter looks scared to death. He had more fun standing at the end of the slide and cheering for everyone else as they came down.
The festival was to raise money for the Volunteer Fire Department in Hollins. Hunter has seen fire trucks go by on the road but he has never gotten to get close to one, right when he saw it he starting making the siren sound. Of course, I had to take a picture of him on the fire truck. Maybe one day his sweet cousins and Uncle Louie can take him for a ride in the fire truck...
Uncle Louie made good sausage hot dogs with cooked peppers and onions on it. Hunter hardly stops long enough to eat anything so I was shocked to go to the table and see him eating all of his Dad's hot dog. I was so embarrassed to eat mine because it was plain (like everything is) and Hunter is sitting beside me finishing up his hot dog that had everything on it. I am so glad once he slows down that he is open to try new things.
Hunter loves the movie "Happy Feet". When he watches it, he will stand up and start tapping his feet on the hardwood floor just like the penguin does in the movie. I never showed him his costume until we got to the church and when we put it on him, he was thrilled. He looked down at his bow tie and looked at me with this look of "I look sharp...look at me!" He didn't understand everyone giving him candy at first but he warmed up quick once he starting eating a Dum Dum... after that he wasn't shy and would reach for a sucker instead of waiting for people to put candy in his bag.
Grammy and Granddad participated in the Trunk or Treat at the church... I would have to say that they had the best decorated "trunk" there.
Pops and his Penguin :-)
Hunter loves his Mimi!
He insisted on Mimi eating some of his sucker. He would not take no for an answer!
After all of the candy that Hunter ate, I figured he needed some real food in his system. All that we could get him to eat was popcorn...guess that's better than nothing. Overall, we had a blast and can't wait for next year!!

You are growing way too fast Hunter. Thank you for taking these pictures for me so that I can remember and cherish all of the good times that we have as a family. Life without you was boring and meaningless. Now that you are here, our lives are full of energy and meaning. Your Dad and I love you very much and can't wait to experience each day in the future with you.

He had a blast hanging out with Luke and Sara. They are the best cousins and really guide and take care of Hunter. They are two of the best kids I know!
Grandad spent the first day digging this HUGE hole. It even had steps and everything in it. As people were walking on the beach, they would stop just to get a look at how big it was. They were very impressed. He enjoyed digging it, I enjoyed watching.. haha. I told him I wasn't working that hard on vacation :-) The kids really loved it (which is why Grandad loves doing it)!
Hunter loved the birds on the beach. He would be playing in the sand and if one stopped near him, he threw down those toys and went chasing after the birds. He just didn't quite understand why the birds would always fly away. I have got to hand it to him... he is strong willed. He would keep chasing every bird he saw... no matter how long he had to run. Lets just say, he took a LONG nap after all of that chasing.
This is Hunter's new friend, Ansley. They have played before the beach trip but this time he was more comfortable around her. Right when she walked in the door, he started giving her kisses. I wasn't in the room when he was doing that, but when he saw me he immediately stopped! They were precious on the beach together. He doesn't share his crackers too much but he eagerly shared them with her. If she wasn't so darn cute, I might have gotten jealous... just kidding!

He loved the little pumpkins... He really thought they were orange "balls". He would pick them up and we would see that arm go back and we would run over to grab the pumpkin out of his hands. We knew he was going to try to throw that pumpkin just like it was a ball.
So we drive all the way to Clanton, Alabama to let Hunter pick out his pumpkin, enjoy a funnel cake, cotton candy, and all of the other activities and the main thing he wanted to do was play with the gravel. I love that it does not take much to amuse him.
They had a petting zoo that had some piglets, cow, goats, pony's, chickens, and rabbits. He loved the piglets the best..
