Our Weekend at the Lake in Random Order

The lake wears all the kids out. Beck fell asleep on the boat and when we got him out he stayed asleep so we put him in this chair on our deck. He slept there for over an hour with all the kids running around him. He was so tired.
I worried that he would get too hot in his life jacket. But when he woke up he was fine just a little thirsty. We found this snake that Elisabeth made friends with and insisted we bring home. So we now have a pet snake named "push-ma-tah-ha". (that was Josh's grandpa's Indian name)
I went to pets mart and got it an aquarium and all the fixens. We will see how long we can keep it alive. I also bought him some live menoes to eat. He has yet to eat one. Don't worry he is just a small grass snake. Very harmless. I THINK! :)
Beck has on his head lamp so he can hunt for frogs. This is their favorite thing to do in the evening.

I found this locust. Isn't he cool.
I of course I had to include this picture of the sunset. God always makes it a beauty! My dad is riding in on the jet ski. He loves that thing.
We had a big fish fry on Saturday for Hailey's birthday. We had fried everything. Fried potatoes, fried okra, fried onions, fried duck, fried red fish, fried shrimp, and fried cat fish. It was a spread. We topped it off with deviled eggs, coleslaw and homemade ice cream. I think I gained 10 lbs. :)

Grandma. My kids think they belong to her. The ask to go to her house everyday. and on most days I oblige. I am so glad we live near family. It really does take a village to raise children.

So here you have it....our weekend in a nut shell. and boy it was fun. Thanks Holley for letting me use your camera since I forgot mine.
