Oh, Lookie There, I've Got a Bite

One of Jordan's favorite songs is The Fishing Song by Brad Paisley (you may also know it as I'm Gonna Miss Her). For those of you unfamiliar with the awesomeness that is Brad Paisley, the song is about the love of fishing. We recently went up to Tennessee to visit family. One day while we were up there, we went fishing. The pictures we took definitely describe fishing in through the eyes of the kids.
Phase 1: The Honeymoon Period

Look at how excited everyone is to be fishing. Of course these pictures were taken two minutes after we got there.

I love that Cade is fishing like a man with that pink fishing pole.

Phase 2: Boredom

Five minutes later, this is what everyone looked like.
Phase 3: Happiness

Callie caught the first fish. That reinvigorated everyone else!

Dad was very proud!

It wasn't much longer until other fish were caught.

Everyone was happy!

Reasons We Love Florida

I'm surprised at how many people don't really like where they live. It's crazy to me because I absolutely love where we live. There are so many reasons we love Florida. Here are a few...

Sunsets at the beach.

Cars can drive on sand.

Fabulous kids to grow up with my kids.

Wonderful friends to do things with.

An endless supply of water.

It's the one place it's okay to show a little crack.

Great educational opportunities.

Grilling out requires an Aunt Jemima rag.

You never have to let the cat die.

There's no age requirement to become a hair dresser.

Hotels have special beds for kids.

Parks that bring a smile to your face no matter how hot it is outside.

Fun uncles that are willing to sweat along with you.

Redneck fireworks.

Parades that throw candy, beads, and popsicles.

Pools are everywhere.

Plants are shaped like our favorite characters.

You can nap anywhere.

Dogs are bigger than you are.

Everyone hugs everyone.
