Happy Birthday Peyton James!

Hard to believe that this was our little guy just last year!
All of his baby pictures are on my external hard drive that won't "talk" with my computer
Peyton at 2,1 and as a newborn (click me)

You are a still a sweet little man and still say the funniest things
He keeps us on our toes
He has been sneaking lots of food this year
He loves his little sister
He picks on his big brothers
He is always asking to go fishing
but is a Mama's boy
He likes to snuggle back in bed with us in the mornings.

Peyton~you brighten up the dreariest of days!

We love you little man!

Love, Mommy and Daddy
Michael, Casey, and Grace

Only the Good Die Young?

According to this song (and my mother) Casey is going to live forever.

It was Sunday morning, I was seven years old
In the backyard playing in a big mudhole
I was all decked out, ready for church
Had my brand new suit all covered in dirt
Mama hit the ceiling she was fit to be tied
Talkin 'bout how shes gonna tan my hide
But Daddy was laughing when I changed my clothes
'Saying "Mama leave the boy alone"

Cause if the good die young
If the good die young
Mama's little boy gonna have alot of fun
Cause he's gonna live forever if the good die young

Shrimp Opener

Please don't be offended by the bottom picture. They are not flipping you off. That is the BLOODYDECKS Salute. I don't understand it, but, whatever.

The Shrimp Opener was on May the 7. It was calling for a rough ride so I opted to keep the boys home with me. Brian and his crew headed out in the wee hours of the morning.
The top picture is Brian's first halibut that he has ever caught. Came in at 30 lbs.
After a 1.5 hour soak the pulled the shrimp pots.
The tides were supposed to be ripping and we didn't want to risk losing a pot.
The pulled a total of 720 shrimp. That is enough for 9 limits. Sadly there were only 3 of them on the boat so a lot of the shrimp went back to the water.
