Cleaning, Fishing and Golf

Jody played in the Member-Member Golf Tournament at the Country Club this weekend with his dad, so the kids, Camp and I headed to Smith Lake! We met my sister and David for a weekend of knocking down the cobwebs, relaxing in the sun and eating!!! On Friday night, we dined on Chicken Fingers and Potato Wedges from Hyatt’s Supermarket in Addison. (You must try them if you are in ever in the area, we always stop for them!) We also got most of the cleaning done on Friday night. I tackled the refrigerator while Stacey did the “canned goods” cabinet, then we got everything else wiped down and ready for a fun Memorial Day Weekend!
Saturday morning after a pancake breakfast, David, Stacey and the kids headed out to the “Minnow and Ice” shop for some fishing supplies while I enjoyed a few minutes of peace and quiet!!! Banks had been talking about going fishing all the way down there and all Friday night. Well, he lasted about 5 minutes the first day before he was bored and ready to move onto something else. We spent the afternoon in the sun on the dock. The kids did jump in the water and I wish I had my video camera to capture their faces because the water is still pretty chilly and neither one of them tested it out before they jumped it! Camp, on the other hand, stayed in the water! He had the best time swimming around and fetching his “duck”. Saturday night we grilled out hamburgers and hot dogs, and then celebrated David’s birthday with brownies and homemade Rocky Road Ice Cream!
Sunday morning, Banks and David got some more fishing in. Banks finally got the hang of the fishing pole and did a few impressive casts! They actually caught a pretty good sized fish. Once Camp sited the fish, he jumped in after it and they had to reel it in really fast before he could catch it!!! The sky was overcast and it looked like rain, so we all headed home around lunchtime! The kids and Camp all fell asleep on the way home! When everyone got up from their naps, we headed to the golf course to watch the shoot out. The kids had a ball playing with all their friends and were very excited to see their Daddy!
We had a wonderful first lake trip of the summer and look forward to many more! Everyone was still tired this morning (even Camp didn’t stir when I first got up this morning)!
