to catch a little fishy

My parents neighbors have a “home made” pond in there backyard that have fish, turtles, frogs and more in it. For sometime the kids have been bugging to go fishing. So a few weekends ago dad and I packed up the kids and took them to the pond.  Jacob stayed behind to play with play-do with mom.  Katey, dad and I had a fishing pole. Camron  was happy just to play in the water.  So dad “baited” our hooks with a plastic  worm.  We helped Katey cast out her line out left her on the dock and dad and I went on either side of her.  Dad caught the first, second, third, and fourth fish.  Katey and I both agreed it was because dad put a different color worm on his hook compared  than ours. So us girls changed our worms. Still no fish on our hooks. So Katey and dad switched bobbers and still no luck. That is when Katey decided that fishing was boring and she was ready to leave.  I don’t think she will be ready to go fishing any time soon.

where has summer gone??

Wow its the middle of Aug already I have soo many pictures on this lap top and so many blogs needing to be typed up. I have 2 yes 2 products I still need to review. In a way I am ready for summer to come to an end so maybe just maybe I can get caught up on my blog. I am ready for the kids to go back to school, this whole I am bored nothing to do, I am hungry what can I eat(even though they just ate 10 mins earlier) is getting old. But then when they go back to school I will miss them. We have about 3 more weeks before school starts and in these 3 weeks we have a trip to Michigan Adventure planned and going to my grandma’s cottage for a few nights, and I am sure visiting more parks before school starts. So far now I have included a few pictures to get you thru until I can get myself back on track with this blog and get things caught up a little.


A few weeks ago my Aunt Rita came home to visit so on the Sunday before she left mom had everyone over so we and many other family members would get a chance to see her before she left. Just can’t believe how busy summer has gotten this year! Since it was warm day my dad made a homemade slip in slide that our kids always love.



Katey coming down on her butt. 


Camron’s turn!




Jacob has a new love for cats. He loves to carry them around until they either scratch him or wiggle out of his arms.



The kids and I tie dyed shirts for them and also made one for Aunt Rita and cousin Sarah. Cousin Sarah will get hers when she comes out in Oct for a family wedding.
