Fishin' with the kiddos

Since it was such a nice weekend - and a BUSY one, at that - we took advantage of Opening Day for Fishing and headed out to American Lake.
Not Shawn's first choice for lakes to fish on, but considering the time frame we had to work with, it was just the easiest.
We didn't catch anything major. Anna was the only one, with a tiny Perch that we threw back.
Ah well, we have the WHOLE summer to try for more!

Cole and Anna at our first spot, right off shore - too shallow

So we moved to a different spot on the lake with a dock.
Cole seemed to get bored easily - go figure.

~ The Bahamas ~

aka: Our Honeymoon
aka: The MOST beautiful place on earth!
aka: the best beaches in the world!
aka: our new favorite place to vacation

aka: Heaven

Scene's from around the compound......

Aren't these the cutest!?

LOTS of freckles came out to enjoy the sun also!

Gold Rock Beach, just south of where 'Pirates' was filmed
(Shawn representing the Seahawks)

See - we saw more than just *beaches* ;)

That's me, waaaaaaay out there at Gold Rock Beach. And the water wasn't even waist high!

This is where it got GOOD!

Lightbourne Cay

We found sandbar after sandbar after sandbar out there in that turquoise....
I got a little teary-eyed - I was so amazed, impressed, taken aback and fulfilled by what I saw.

Two and a half days!

Until I'm here...
We're here, *we're*.... I gotta remember that part. he he
Two days and we'll be on a plane to --- THE BAHAMAS!!!
I can't WAIT to see that water. I "mmmm" about it every time I see a commercial or photo. Shawn makes fun of me now.
But I think I've dreamed of it since I was, like, 10 years old.

The blog will be flooded with ACTUAL, original Caribbean photos when I get back.

~ Anna ~

Anna-banana. She's almost 15 - can you believe it?!?
We were lucky enough to have her over for this past weekend and on thru Wednesday, since she's on Spring Break. We hope to have her back again on Friday, crossing our fingers!
Cole & Anna had such a great time with the amazing SUNSHINE - yes, you read correctly, sunshine - playing street hockey (and making up their own rules), riding bikes, soccer, baseball and badmitton. I think Sunday and Monday hovered at almost 70 degrees! It was so great to have Spring here, even if it was for just a few days.
Anna also had a Spring Choir concert last week and she did an amazing job. She's got such a beautiful soprano voice and got so many compliments on her composure, stature and natural beauty.
