With Friday being the last day of school and the start to Memorial Weekend, we really didn't have any plans per se.
The kids swam all afternoon when we got home from school. This seems to be the only time they get along. I am so glad that we decided to get an above ground pool. The small amount of maintenance so outweighs the joy and fun we all have with the pool.
Saturday they got up and were back in the pool at 9:00 a.m. Spent all day in the pool. Tim spent the afternoon smoking some ribs and chicken. Dad, Janice, Kati, and Brady came by along with Albert and Jeri and we had a delicious dinner! Brady even swam with the kids.
Sunday the kids again were in the pool till mid afternoon when we decided to take the tent over to the pretty pond on the 50 acres. We have a grill over there and cooked hot dogs and hamburgers and fished all evening. We didn't catch much. Grandpa Albert came out to see our setup and Amy and Tim's cousin Spencer and his girlfriend came out for smores. They fished a while and had a couple of good bites but lost them before they got to the shore.
The evening was beautiful and besides the bullfrogs and a howling dog up the road we had a good nights rest.
Jake and I were up at 6 a.m. with our poles in the water. We had a couple good bites but we too lost them before we landed them. We tried some new hooks and had better luck. I was the first to pull in a huge catfish. Jake and Tim caught three more all in about 30 minutes and as quick as they started biting they quit. We broke down camp about 10:00. We are getting much better at putting up and taking down the tent.
We came home cleaned the fish and the kids have been swimming since. Tim is in bed asleep and has been for about 4 hours. I guess his night wasn't as restful as mine!
Jake wants to go to the pond behind our house this evening. We'll see....
