Luke caught his first big-mouth bass! During my cousin's wedding weekend, we stayed at my parents place in NC. They own a lovely piece of land up there with a lake, a pond, and beautiful acreage. Cameron loves escaping out to the lake with whomever wants to go throw a line. He and I once caught 9 big fish in about one hour. This time, he took Luke and his cousin Gillian out, and it was Luke who got lucky. He caught it and reeled it in, where Cameron helped him take it off the line. I was up at the house with the little ones. Luckily my sister-in-law had her camera and was willing to paddle out in a canoe by herself just to take a picture for us. Thanks Buffy! Luke was just delighted.
Lovin' life in the south with my awesome husband and 4 crazy kids! Grits, rocking chairs, peaches, "yes ma'am," collard greens, and crazy hot summers; we love it! This blog is snippets of our life: pictures, stories, projects, maybe even an occasional recipe--whatever tickles my fancy!
I love reading. Historical fiction is my favorite but I'll read anything friends recommend, and I'm always on the lookout for my next read, so give me your favorites!
