Our Weekend so far…

It’s Saturday night and Brian is out cat fishing. Adam is fast asleep and I am refusing to fold the 4 loads of laundry staring at me from the baskets. We have had a pretty nice weekend so far!

Yesterday we hit the Pancake House for breakfast. This has pretty much become a weekly ritual for us. After breakfast, Brian went to help some friends move into their new house so Adam and I ran some errands. Brian got home after Adam’s nap, so we grabbed the boat and were off to the river! We needed to fill the boat up with gas on the way.

While at the gas station, I went inside the store to use the restroom and when I came out, I saw Brian trying to open the doors of the truck and shaking his head. I knew instantly what had happened….Adam and Jack were locked inside the truck! Luckily the truck was running, so they wouldn’t roast. Also lucky was the fact that we were at the gas station just down the road from our house, so Brian was able to ask someone for a ride up to our house to grab the spare set of keys and I hung out with truck and made faces at Adam. It wasn’t long before Brian was back and we were off again to the river! (This situation could have been SO MUCH worse!)

We put the boat on the river in Carver and started cruising. We went all the way to the airport!! We saw lots of things on the way but mostly we just enjoyed the beautiful day. We anchored the boat in the shade by the airport and ate the supper we packed. Planes were flying by pretty low, so that kept us entertained. Then it was time to head back, so off we went. Adam was getting tired so he cuddled up in my lap. He realized he was starting to fall asleep, so he sat straight up and started looking around again. Silly guy! We made it home, got cleaned up and tucked Adam in.

This morning, Brian figured he needed to stock his live bait tank so we went on a bullhead hunt. He knows of a great spot where he can just scoop up the bullheads with his net and put ’em in the bucket. A few scoops and we were done! Adam thought it was pretty fun to help Daddy get the bullheads out of the net and into the bucket. He also got to help move the bullheads from the bucket into the bait tank. I always find it disgusting to have live bullheads swimming around in my house (Yes, they’re in the basement in a separate room with the door shut, but still!) but Brian and Adam find it quite entertaining. Ah, boys!

Brian is off trying to catch some huge, nasty cat fish and I’m wondering why I’m not in bed. I’ll put up a couple pics, then call it day!

Here is Adam sitting like a big boy in his own seat on the boat. We didn’t let him do this for long because we kept hitting waves from other boats:

And here are the boys getting the bullheads out of the net:

And into the tank:

This is just a cute one of Adam and Baby. Adam is showing Baby some stuff on the computer! So sweet!

That’s it for now! Have a good night!
