Road Trip (very short, not like yours Brittany!!)



Saturday we went to my aunt and uncle's farm about an hour east of us for a cook-out, fishing, horse-visiting, and just bein' lazy. On long-ish car trips, I always put my feet on the dashboard. It drives Marvin bananas. Especially is I have bare feet and leave toe-prints on the windshield!



Ava couldn't wait to try it out...

Alec was reading as usual (that kid's a total bookworm!)
















Benji was daydreaming...



Stuck behind this for a while, going waaaay too slow!




Finally there, and the boys are in heaven!




Ava's checkin' out her bait. "Look mommy!", she says, "the worm-y worms are fighting!" Ewwww!




Finally getting to try out the Princess Pole! She caught a bunch of algae...



Don't know about you, but I've never seen an albino catfish...creeeeepy! My dad accidentally dropped it and it slapped Ava in the face with it's tail! From then on she wouldn't come near Papa when he caught one and kept shouting, "Don't slap me, Papa!"




Proud boys and Papa (oh, and a very large fish!)



Time to feed Fancy a biscuit...we tried again to convince the kids that they could sit on Fancy's back and have a ride, but they'd have no part of that idea!



My mom trying to get the kids to look and smile...heck, it's easier just to take pictures of the backs of their heads and call it "being artistic"!!



Uh, yeah...(show this one to Ozzie, Britt!)



Wish I had a pony!



Cute...



Not cute!



How Ava and her cousin, Elle, entertained themselves afterwards while we waited until TEN O'CLOCK for the fireworks, which we watched in the rain!!!
Happy Independence Day!

I think I'm going to have scary dreams about that catfish.

You have such a beautiful family!
