Weekend Fiestas! (Part Two)

On Sunday we went up to our friends' house for a get-together. They live up in the 'boonies' of our county and it is always nice to get away from it all for a while. Jeff took the kids fishing on the pond on their property. James caught two fish! He wouldn't hold them. Katie wanted Jeff to catch her one so she could hold it. Fishing in that pond is like fishing in a fishbowl, and with a few casts Jeff caught one for her. He let her reel it in and she held it until it jumped from her hands into the grass. That upset her so bad she screamed and cried and freaked out. Jeff and I were laughing so hard it was difficult to catch our breath. She said something along the lines of 'that tinkin' fish jumped outta my hands in da dwass!' And 'I'm never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever......dunna hold a fish a-din!' I wish we had it on tape, it was that good.

Who says slip-and-slides for just for kids? Well, it was so hot I decided to go a few times. You do hit a little harder as an adult then as a 35 pound kid! But it was still fun.

Tyler had fun splashing in a little water
