Fishing with Friends

A friend called and asked if we wanted to go fish in the creek by her house.  I quickly packed up the kids and we arrived for an amazing afternoon of fishy fun. 
 I had to help Duke catch some fish in the net.  (All fish were released)
 Kincaid catching the first of about 5 fish all by himself in his net.
 Kincaid releasing the humpy.
 Combat fishing kiddo style.
Duke's fish in the net!  (We used teamwork...)

Cabin Weekend

 We set out for Barber Cabin!  We drove through pouring rain that only stopped minutes before we got out of the car.  So serendipitous! 

 We got to the cabin and the boys immediately wanted to fish and didn't stop until we left.  The shot on the right is the first morning.  It was such a beautiful fog covering the lake. 

 We took a few trips out in the canoe.  It was wonderful with the kids, but rather nice by myself as well!
 Kory did the most paddling and exploring of the lake.
 Yet another fishing shot.  The boys both learned how to bait their own hooks - yipee!  Next lesson is learning to remove a fish from a hook.
 This was the average size of the fish we caught.  They could just drop their baited hook over the edge of the dock and have a fish on in minutes (well at least Kin could...)
 Unfortunately, we did have to leave!  Kincaid hiked the entire way in and out.  Duke needed a little carry both ways.  He said that he was 'weary' and Kincaid only mentioned his 'feet were malfunctioning'.

Friday is here!

 A big happy birthday to my favorite big sister in the world!  We are so happy that we get to spend this day with you!  You are an amazing sister and an even more wonderful aunt.  Thank you for everything and hopefully you have a great birthday!

 We joined some friends at a playground for some fun in the sun.  We hit a really great part of the day with temps around 72.  The kids did some biking and some playing and then a large amount of pine cone gathering (I have a LARGE bag full of them in my car). 
 Here, they are all hiding under one of the structures.
 Duke enjoyed these flat swings. 
 They all did some climbing.
There was even a sundog.  Pretty wonderful time outside!

It was Wednesday

We took the pup out to see her brother.  They ran like mad for about an hour and then she slept for about 3.  They are so cute together!
The boys love it out there as there is always salmon, ritz and cream cheese on hand!
The boys then had some fun 'hand lining' for dogs.  Pepper loves it.
Here is a wonderfully happy tomato - it looks like a heart or a smile.  HUGE!
Here are the boys looking super silly.  I love these crazy boys!

It was a Tuesday

 It was a skedaddle day and I didn't take one picture.  It was a semi-conscious decision.  The kids were having a great time playing with their friends and I was having nice conversations with parents.  It was a great 2 1/2 hours at the playground!

We had some lunch, took a bike ride and then did some sprinkler jumping!  Good times!

Here is a little video of Kincaid biking!  You can see me running after him at the end as he is still learning to brake and I didn't want him to ram that car!

Weekend in Review

 Just some pictures from the weekend.    Here is Kincaid with the pup - she is obviously settling in nicely.
 We did some running through the sprinkler at Birchwood.
 Kory is here!  The kids are enjoying her (and her ipad).
 The pup really wants to play with Sahale, but so far Sal is not very satisfied.
EXCITING NEWS!  Kincaid was uber-determined to learn to ride a bike without training wheels.  After about 2 minutes, he told me to let go and I did (though I was sure he would crash and burn).  He sailed away! 
And, a picture of our pup (on top) with her brother that my aunt and uncle adopted.  They recognized each other immediately and played until they passed out together.
