A Fish Tale

Today was free fishing day and we wanted to take advantage. It was cold, cloudy and windy, and threatening rain, but that didn't deter us.
It probably should have. Lexy is goofing off, but take a look at her hair!
Lexy and Eric scouted out the perfect spot for us, we set up fish camp, and proceeded to fish.

Gang Banger Eli, Riley's fashionable friend Lindsay, and Riley were persistant but no luck. Those wiley fish were no where to be found.

Ella and I stayed warm in the truck. She watched me while I read, and then I gave her a driving lesson.

After everyone was sufficiently cold we packed up fish camp, but undeterred, we vowed to try again another day!

Nailed It!

I've been bugging my friend Rachel Berry for some old fence boards from her burn pile. Finally I was able to lasso Max and Eli to help me and we headed out between rain storms, (though it started raining on us soon after we got there).

Rachel warned us about all the nails in the pile and to be careful. And we were, until like the last two minutes we were there. Max, in his enthusiasm to go after a board, stepped on a nail. Ouch! Luckily his tetanus shot is still effective for a few more years!
But, in Max's own words, there's money in that wood! This is the load we got. Was it worth it?
Heck ya! In fact, I want to go get more when its not raining.
