Today is Nanny’s 80th Birthday and it’s one of the easiest to remember since it’s also the day we got married. Unfortunately we won’t be able to make the ‘grand celebration’ today due to the annual Cub Scout Camp-out that has been planned for several months but we are certainly there in spirit. We hope it’s a celebration that truely reflects on her wonderful 80 years of life!
Happy Birthday Nanny, we wish you many, many more healthy, happy years!
which one of these is Java!? On our camping trip this past weekend we ran into a family that had just gotten a new puppy. She was soooo cute!! Once we got close enough to her that we could see her little face and features we were like “oh my gosh” she looks just like our Java! You take a peek and guess which one is our Java..
Chase has always been our ‘water boy’ thus the middle name “Bay”. He has been swimming since he was six months old and loves any activity that includes water. With that said, fishing is a natural hobby for him. Over the past two years he has really started enjoying the sport and learned to bait his own line as well as pull hooks from their mouths (yuck!). Luckily he can fish right by the house on Butch’s pond and he has had his share of luck. Last Friday he and a friend were fishing on the pond and he called Ronnie to ‘come see’. Wow! he really caught a large mouth bass! He was so excited!
On Father’s Day he suggested that he and Ronnie go fishing in the afternoon. So…that’s what they did. Unfortunately Ronnie only caught a small mouth bass so Chase is still in the lead =)
So today was their first full day at camp – It took Cierra three beds to figure out where she really wanted to be however Chase was satisfied with any bunk. As you can imagine, the boy’s cabin was much more calm than the girl’s cabin with 40+ girls and their ‘stuff’. When I left the boys were talking about fishing and the girls were decorating their bunks.
Their schedule starts at 7:00 each morning and the lights don’t go out until 11:00 p.m. Wow – they mean it when they say “it’s a full week of activities”.
