Snapper Fishing

While all our family was in town, my mom chartered a huge boat to take us all offshore fishing. We headed out of the marina about six o'clock in the morning, yes, that means we were up at four to get ready and drive to the marina, yikes! And went about 12 miles offshore. We caught 23 Red Snappers, 1 King Mackerel and 2 Spanish Mackerel, everyone had such a blast, it was a thrill reeling in the fish and all of us peering over the edge of the boat to see what kind and how big  the fish was :)

Weekend Recap

We had a great little bit of time off, that lasted all the way through yesterday, that was jam packed with celebrating the Fourth, my 10 year high school reunion, remembering my grandmother with all the family with a memorial, charter boat offshore fishing, eating and lots more :) During that time we had family in from Europe, Virginia, New Orleans, North Carolina, all over the place. I'll post pictures over the next few days of our fishing trip, family fun, and a very tasty dessert recipe I tried out.

Wednesday we celebrated the fourth with my mom, one of our kiddos previous teachers, some friends and their adorable baby.
Yes, our goofy Old Navy Shirts, I do them every year, but still ♥ them :)

Yummy goodies to nibble on, found the bell pepper dip holder idea on Pinterest, where else ;)

Kabobs ready for the grill....

....and the grill master in action!

Yes, that is my husband doing a toe touch over a firework....but you have to admit, it's a pretty good toe touch, lol
