Ouch. I can't even believe it. We were sunscreen users today. To a fault. We were rubbing down with it way more than 20 minutes before we got into the sun AND we were careful to make sure we had full coverage. Yet still, here I sit like a lobster in places and a ghost in others. The contrast always makes me laugh. My girls all have a bit of the burn as well. Except Kayla who spent most of the day curled into a ball hiding under a towel. She also used more sunscreen than anyone else. I told her Edward isn't real AND...she said she was team Jacob anyway.

We fished mostly today and I was on cloud nine. I love fishing. Love love love it. I would love it even more if we could actually catch fish that you can eat but I make myself content to catch and release tiny bass, sunfish and bluegill. Erika caught something enormous today-we watched it thrash in the water. She was trying to reel it in and we were searching frantically for the net when the line snapped. Total fish caught-I don't remember but Erika, Lilly and I all caught fish and we were very happy. Kayla doesn't fish, tan or swim. We are debating whether or not she should attend boating outings. She basically just eats the snacks. (BOO HISS) I guess she does help us balance out the boat too.

It was a fun family day. Dad being off the day after a holiday is really cool. It has been a fun long weekend. Tomorrow is back to work for everyone. Now I am off to munch a salad I picked out of my garden. I am excited and a little scared.

PS...I found my camera cord!! Random pics for you!!
My little birdies. This is at the Audubon museum in Henderson, KY. My Great nephew, Noah. He is waving hello (or maybe trying to say Nanu-nanu, just look at that concentration!) and he has grown so much since this picture it makes my heart hurt.Lilly LOVES Noah and everything about him. Can you tell by the expression on her face??
Lilly and Dunker-our favorite local talk radio personality at our town's Tea Party 2009. The bumper sticker on that guy's back is also posted on my bulletin board. I LOVE IT! It says: "The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money." Sigh. 'Tis the truth.

Great pics! I can't believe how grown up your kids are getting. Whew. Time marches on.

I haven't been fishing in FOREVER - but in the past weekend, Steven decided he might like to start fishing after all. I think it's the fact that we live at the lake and never really DO anything at the lake (it's sad, I know).
