7 Years of 4ths

Seven years ago, I was a college student. That July 4th, my parents were on vacation, but I stopped by their house to check on my brother who had been away at Kansas State getting ready for football. When I opened the door from the garage to the house, I saw a really tall guy (without a shirt on) walking down the hallway. His name was Andrew Shull….and here we are today.

So, it’s kind of become a tradition to spend July 4th with his family and mine together. This year was no exception. His mom and dad came down and we had a great time hanging out. On Saturday, we went to my parents’ house for a pool party. Happy July 4th!!!

Me and my mom (I pray every day to look this good)

Yes, she is playing with maracas…my parents bought them for her in San Antonio

Uncle Seanie and K have their serious faces on

After I say a prayer to look like my mom, I say one to look like my grandmother too. It’s not July 4th without a red and white bikini!

Here’s the deal: my family LOVES to play volleyball in the pool. It’s been going on for 30 plus years. We love it! However, we kept rotating the losers to another team until finally the loser team was made up of the four Lowes…my mom, my dad, my brother and me. Us Lowes couldn’t be declared the losers of the pool…we got our game faces on and took them down!

We’re going to swim to Daddy now…

Off she goes!

Kensington did great…daddy was not likin’ this swimming under the water thing. It made him nervous.

And of course, my family will do anything for a laugh…here is my dad “helping” Sean swim to his mommy. He’s 25.
