Good morning! What a beautiful Mother's Day we had and it looks like the weather is going to hold throughout most of the week. We started our day out early yesterday. Dick cooked breakfast for me, my mom, our daughter and daughter-in-law along with both of their families. What a nice treat! Our son Chad always heads out to the water when he gets here, he spent hours and hours out by the canal when he was a kid. Dick and Chad decided to get a fishing pole out and see what happened.
This was Lucy's first fishing experience and she loved everything about it! She helped dig the worms, reeled in the rod, and actually caught one little fish.
Abbey is an old pro! She can cast that pole like there's no tomorrow. (Don't you love a girl that fishes in a dress???)
Lucy got to see frogs, "turdlers", ducks, a musrat and was so excited that she just grinned from ear to ear!
I love spending time with these little girls, they are both so easy to take care of and they just love life!
We had to put Lucy's fish in a bucket for a little while and she named him Harold. What a sight to see her face when he jumped and splashed!
Gannon came back to us in the afternoon and Amanda brought Jack and Ellie to see us too. Dick, Gannon and I put the boat in the canal and went for a little ride. Of course we couldn't think of going without Gan's fishing pole!
Thank you Dick for a wonderful day and for all you do for your family every day. Now it's reality check time and we need to work like crazy to get ready for the show at Old Mother Hubbard's this Saturday in Munith, Michigan. Come on you prim gals, you'll love it! So, Happy Belated Mother's Day!!! Until next time...
