More fishing!

Sept 25-27th, 2009


Gabe and Kelsey arrived Friday night and are staying the weekend with us. Saturday night they went fishing at the lake and caught a nice large mouth bass.


Kelsey actually caught this fish and as you can see she is proud of it. One good thing about a private property is that no fishing license are required.


The next morning the kids got up early and headed out to go fishing again and as you can see Gabe caught a nice large mouth bass as well. I think his is bigger Kelsey … sorry hon!

I was planning to attend church but since the kids were here, they wanted breakfast and Heather and the grand kids are heading later today.


Heather and I took Hailey and Toby to play at the park …. Hailey enjoyed the slide and of course Toby had to do what ever big sister did.


Of course mom had to go down the slide with him and then his attention went to all that sand!

Then Hailey wanted to swim and of course so did Tob man and so once again mom had to swing with him as he isn’t big enough to do it by himself like big sister. Although … shhhh … don’t tell Toby as he thinks what ever big sis can do he can do

after the park it was time to go visit the water fountain. Hailey loved it, Toby wasn’t so sure

After the water fountain it was back to the camper and bike ride time. Heather brought her bike and Hailey brought hers. Papa and Grandma took the time to catch a few minutes of rest before the next round.


Once the bike ride was over it was time to go fishing. Toby wasn’t much into fishing, so mama took him for another bike ride and so Hailey, papa, Kelsey and Gabe fished, while grandma took pictures.

The fish might not have been the catch they were looking for but they at least were catching and enjoying themselves.

After fishing it was time to head back to the camper, fire up the grill and start dinner. Dinner was bbq pork steak, mac & cheese (Toby & Hailey favorite) corn and cake for desert. After dinner it was getting late and Hailey has school in the morning. Of course she wasn’t ready to leave and wanted to stay longer but with her bag of candy we finally got her loaded up and on her way home. Gabe and Kelsey left a bit later and it was time to clean up. Although i sent all the left over home with Heather for Tyson since he worked all day while we all played. I left the dishes for in the morning. Got my shower and hit the sack. It’s been a long and exhausting few weeks and i was past ready for bed.
