Okay, I know I am a worry wart. I think that comes under a grandmother’s job description doesn’t it? D gets so caught up in the excitement of the catch I’m always afraid he might tumble into the lake headfirst. He didn’t really like me hanging onto his PFD (personal flotation device) I think we used to just call them life jackets, but he was a good sport about it. :o)
It was just glorious weather on the Saturday before the 4th as you can see by the beautiful blue sky and puffy clouds. It was actually the best day of the holiday weekend so I was glad we chose that day for the family get together just in case the 4th tanked.
The Hubs spent his time going from the front of the boat where T was to the back where D was helping bait hooks and taking off some of the more feisty sunfish.
Funsize and my sister Jill.
Son bringing in a new thing to haul behind the boat and thrash the daylights out of anyone willing to go for a ride. I did that last year…….my bladder just can’t take it………ahem…….
My BIL who always mans the grill. Thank you Ray!!!!
The Hubs driving the boat. I like to just sit or stand and enjoy seeing all the cottages along the shoreline, the loons and the young people having fun at the beach. I don’t care a bit about driving.
I love this one with Grampie and D fishing together.
It’s a whopper! Well sort of…….
Just look at those beautiful clouds!
Time for a nap!
A little target practicing under Dad’s watchful eyes. Not bullets, just tiny paintballs, not even the regular size, these splatter very easily. Hmmmmm……I wonder if they were shooting at the garage?
Who is that masked kid?!
Another sleepy kiddo at the end of the day. What a great day!
We have a new family member. He’s here on a two week trial but I think we know what the answer is going to be. :o) He is sweet and gentle and BIG!
His new barn name is Scooter in remembrance of my friend Barn Goddess and her horse Scooter. It’s funny, she has been on my mind lately, before we even knew this horse was in the works, so it just seems appropriate that this will be his name! We have two weeks to try him and make sure he is a good fit for our family. So far so good!!!!
T giving him a bath. He got kind of sleepy as you can see. Keep your fingers and toes crossed that everything keeps going as positive as it has so far. :o)
