Everyday Adventure



This summer my boys have fallen deep in love 
with fishing.

It's all they want to do.


After the lines are all untangled 
and we get through the first 5 minutes of, 

"Hey! You almost poked my eye out!" 
&
"Who hooked my shirt? Get it out!"

Then, they settle in.


No one even cares if they catch the biggest,


or the smallest.


And the sweetest conversations & teamwork happen.



It's magical & peaceful until:

"Mom!!!  My pole is stuck up in tree!"
(the tree that is so tall I couldn't fit it in the picture)


Then, the peacefulness is gone,
 because we are laughing too hard.


Until we cut that baby down.

(the pole, not the tree)

One thing for sure...
when you travel with a pack of boys,
everyday there is an adventure.

Just like Annie


This year Annie started playing fast pitch softball.




Her amazing coaches encouraged her to try out catcher.
She loves it.

When she gets home from practice she asks me to pitch 
(my wild pitches) as she practices.

She spends a loooooot of time like this:










So the boys spend a lot of time watching like this:





Monkeys See, Monkeys Do.
Gonna have some killer leg muscles.
