Saturday, we took the girls across the ferry to play in the water and sand for the day. I don't really care for the beach, but I have to admit, this time was great! It wasn't super hot and there was a breeze...Mandy was happy!
Ms. Amy actually got Daughter #1 to go out farther than she's ever gone before. That might not sound like much, but this is my big chicken that we're talking about. She usually squeals if she thinks she sees a fish near her in the water!
They went further out, but I was in with them holding on to Daughter #2. She had to get pretty good at jumping with the waves since she's a little shorter! She had a good time too, especially when she willingly let her sister bury her.
My favorite picture...I just love little feet!
Then came the fishing...the girls had a great time! Daughter #1 teamed up with Mr. Kevin and Daughter #2 with her daddy. Amy got stuck with me and did all the work, but let me bring them in. My job is really to just get good pictures; it's self assigned, but something I'm good at. I'm not too much for touching live bait or live fish for that matter! I'd much prefer to take pictures and then cook whatever is caught. Daughter #1 wasn't too happy when her daddy and Daughter #2 kept pulling them in, but she only tried to bail out on her partner a few times! After all was said and done, we brought in 6 Black Drums! This was a first for I think Bob and Kevin both, so that was kind of cool as well!

We came home stuffed and sunburned, but happy. You know my husband was tired...he let me drive the whole way home and kept the griping to a minimum!
Now to the blooms!! I was checking the succulents and noticed that my Adromischus cristatus 'Key Lime Pie' was blooming! Nothing too spectacular, but I was pleasanty pleased!

Looking forward to a great week!
