I know, I know...I have been MIA of late. I am being out blogged by everyone in blogland. It was a long week that involved more working then I typically do. I bow in awe to Moms that work full time! I just cannot wrap my brain around how everything gets done. Working 4 days this week, with evening activities and home work time leaves the house looking like we have been vandalized!

My husband took Elise fishing with him for opening weekend of freshwater fishing at the family lake cabin. Amazing how changing the family dynamics like that seems to create a honeymoon atmosphere. My remaining Posse and I will hit the pool for a swim, hopefully they will oblige me some gym time and then Mexican has been requested. I will then try not to eat all the chips undoing any good I did at the gym...guess I should skip the margarita. Except that this is a honeymoon, right?

Have a lovely weekend where ever you are.

Sisters fishing a couple years ago at the cabin. Yes, we love tye-dye!

They dyed these shirts themselves-I love them! The girls and the shirts.

Might have to send her out to get some real fishing done.

Really, the boat was anchored to the dock in shallow water. I am a life jacket nut-- 1 scary near drowning incident as a child left me freaked out about my kids drowning! That is a future blog for my Mom to share...years if screaming in the shower must have been fun. I hated water as a child.

If they are lucky they will catch something bigger then this!

Megan insists this fish went on to live a happy life. He was put back in the water and swam off...hopefully not to a watery grave. You just have to take a picture of your kids 1st catch!

OK, now I'm REALLY intrigued by this near drowning story you implicated and your mom confirmed...which one of you will be posting the details? :)

One of the things I miss about not living in the Pacific NW anymore is going to my aunt's lake cabin on opening weekend...those were some fun times! I bet she and my uncle are there right now! :)

LOVE the pictures of the girls fishing...they did a great job on their tie-dye shirts, too! :)

Love the shirts - I think that you have a couple of young entrepreneurs on your hands! They could start their own t-shirt biz. At the lake! How much fun would that be for them!

Cute shirts! I could swim before I was even 2 years old, so I love the water. Sorry to hear about the water accident! Scary.
