Another day.

Hi guys. I haven't wrote in a week or so because I have been busy. Or lazy. Probably the latter. But I'm good, the kids are good, and Lee is good. All good here.

To recap things I have done since I was last here I shall make a list. I LOVE lists. I mean, who doesn't? If in fact you do not like lists, go away. It's list time. By the way it is a highly unorganized list which isn't like me at all!

* Lee, the girls, and myself went to the river yesterday to swim. We were going to go to the lake but the river was closer and we had to drive right over it to get to the lake so we just stopped there instead. Let me tell you it was a good choice on my part. The river wasn't flowing very fast and where we were at there is a short stretch of  1-2 foot deep rapids with slow pools above and below. Usually we swim below the rapids and the ground under the water is all mushy and makes you wish you wore tennis shoes. But this time we swam above the rapids and the ground was big round river rocks and soft silt. It was wonderful. Not over my head tho it was close a couple times! The girls played in the rapids watching minnows and then got in there tubes and swam right out to where we were. Which was very surprising because they are usually timid about that sort of thing. They had so much fun! Even Josie got into the water and she loved it. She did not however like the fact that she spit her binky out and it was floating around. thankfully we had it on a strap so it didn't get far. I laid her back in the water and she just floated around with her eyes all scrunchy. Yesterday was just a great day. I didn't take my camera tho and now I regret it. Lee and I are both super sunburned but the girls just got tanner. Is that even a word??

* I got new furniture. A brown leather sectional. Although I'm pretty sure it isn't real leather. Who cares it looks nice!

I think that is all I have to say today. Not a lot but it is pretty early and the girls woke me up a couple times last night.

My beautiful Zoey pausing so I can snap a few pictures of her. I love that goofy smile. The whole time she was sitting her she was saying "Cheeeeeeessssseeeee" and gritting her teeth.

My husband

Lee is a pretty great guy. Yes he annoys me at times and forget things. Such as promises to take me for mexican but overall he alright. a few weeks ago it was our 6 year anniversary. It went well. We didn't do anything special because we couldn't get a sitter for the life of us. Oh well.

On to the good stuff tho. Lee caught a HUGE fish yesterday! Mack daddy (well mommy)!

9 pounds of bass that will be hanging on our wall in a few months!

I'm pretty proud of him and this fish. He and my Uncle Frank ended up winning this tournament with just this fish. Apparently everyone was pretty depressed once they saw him pull this bad boy out of the boat.
So summer is here. And let me say its hot hot hot!!

First here is a funny story. My mom went camping this weekend and we went to visit her at the river. Mark and Lee went fishing in this little pond that Lee just LOVES to fish. Its full of monster bass, crappie and who knows what else. So off they go. About 15 minutes later here comes Mark carrying a HUGE bass and a tiny crappie. He tells us he caught the crappie, put him on the stringer, tied it to his belt loop and went back to fishing. Suddenly he felt a tug at his belt loop. He grabbed the stringer and pulled it out of the water. Out flung a huge bass trying to eat his crappie! No joke!

Crazy story huh.

Ok now for a couple pictures..
Moe the rooster! Penny swears he is the mack daddy rooster!

Pedro and Lolita. Polish bantys and my pride and joy!!

My coop. One angle of it anyways.

Pretty cool lantern. Well to me anyways!

Hooch the goat. Anyone know what kind he is??

So there are my barnyard pictures!

We went to the Fort Worth Zoo last week. Super fun! We rode the train, the carousel and looked at all sorts of animals.

There was a huge tank what was half in and half out of the ground that had gharials and turtles and all sorts of fish in it. the turtles were very friendly and Josie even liked them!

I am posting from my phone. Through text because only my husband has an IPhone. Totally going to stomp his toes. Anyways off to swim!
