So, we were supposed to go walleye fishing on Sunday or Monday, depending on the weather. Well, friends of my parents decide like a week ago to invite the entire family over to their place on Sunday afternoon for some food...so, then we decided to go on Friday. Well, yesterday was cloudy, windy, cold, and wet. And the fish...what fish?! I think the lake was void of fish.... So, we got skunked. Stinkin' walleye.
I honestly don't know if I will go again...Chris and Kevin were like, "this is nothing! (referring to the weather, the wind, the cold, etc...) this is how it is...this is how you catch walleyes..." I got sick of hearing it. I kept thinking, well, if this is how it is, I probably won't ever catch a walleye. I'll stick to calm, quiet lakes on bright, sunny days where I can catch sunnies.
Last Friday Chris and his dad started on the subfloor in our laundry room.
It wasn't long before the beams were up, and the room suddenly became much smaller.
On Sunday we went with some friends to the Blaine airport for their airport days...it was wet, rainy, and cold. I got a few pictures though...thankfully we left before the horrible storms rolled in..the sirens went off, and I went into "tornado mode" and our guests even huddled in our crawl space with us for 30 minutes. I was glad though...better safe than sorry! All ended up well though...and we had fun and the kids were going crazy...as in Nathan and their daughter Anna.

|I love that Anna's shirt says "critterlicious!"|
|Nathan thought this firetruck was beyond cool.|
This is the access to the storage -- pull down steps, which still need to be modified. We looked to see if we could crawl in from upstairs, but there wasn't enough clearance...
On Monday night while Daddy and Grandpa worked, Nathan and Evan took a bath together for the first time (usually Nathan doesn't want to share the tub).
You wouldn't ever believe that a few weeks ago Evan would SCREAM when we put him in water...now we can't keep him out of it...and now he SCREAMS when you take him out before his brother. goodness!
|Here he is crying...wanting to go back into the tub with Nathan!|
