Memorial Day

Our week officially started off MUCH, MUCH better.  We had a great time yesterday despite the fact that O didn't have a nap. 

After working around the yard yesterday am, the kids and I went to Grandpa Dave and Grandma Donna's for some fishing and a picnic. 

Owen fishing. I'm pretty sure the longest the bobber actually stayed in water was whenever it was cast the farthest!  He didn't have the patience-he kept saying every 2 seconds
'Gotta bite' bringing it in

This creek "hole" was one we used to swim in all the time.
And yes the water was that dirty if not more.  Kinda grosses me out now.

Trying another spot to see if the fish are biting any better here. 
(note: they weren't, but Grandpa Dave caught a few)

Stopped on the way home to get our feet wet.
See the nice 2011 Tiger Graffiti behind my dad.

Apparently this creek has been renamed "keystone creek"
Just a note to you, and I quote, "2011 Kick Ass Tigers" signing your initials doesn't make you any cooler!

So glad my children who now know how to read will have some reading material when we want to go fishing or to throw rocks or to just get our feet wet! NOT 

I took this pic because I thought the blue in the sky was really pretty!

We then had a hot dog roast
And a picnic outside. 
After supper..we went to pasture to check cattle.  Owen thought he was BIG stuff driving!

Ending the day w/a bath and chocolate ice cream cone

We had a great day, thanks mom and dad for providing entertainment.  oh-I really was going to bring
Lucky along, but decided that wet dog smell in the van on way home, was not worth it.  (brent had the truck)

(note: just in case anyone wondered where/what brent was, he worked all day.  He worked on a rental in the am and cut waterways in the afternoon and by 9pm last night he was broke out in hives and eyes fiery red.  Stuffy/runny nose all at the same time. Must have gotten into something while unplugging the swather.  He is better today, but still stuffy.)

I hate the summers actually but really enjoy them on a picnic. & I never give up to the ice-cream or swimming in summer.

Your blog reminds me my last vacation's trip of New York!
