Fishing with Tim

Tonight Tim took me fishing on a lake near our house. It was so nice and peaceful just the two of us. We were the only ones on the lake. I haven't gone fishing in a long time. The last time I went with Tim, I didn't have a license so I was just the photographer. This time I caught 6 bass! The biggest was 15 inches. Here are a few pictures from our evening on the lake.

My handsome husband taking us "out to sea"

The very first fish I caught was this 15 inch bass

Wow! He must be reeling in a huge one!!!

Oh Yeah! That's a keeper. (Not) Ok, the above picture was from a different fish. :)

Our first "date" was fishing together 15 years ago! It was so nice to be able to do it again.

This was a lovely way to end the day!

Mother/Daughter Getaway 2009

June 11-14th My Mom, sisters, and I went to New Buffalo, Michigan for our annual Mother/Daughter Getaway. Every year we go to a new place. We had a great time this year at the New Buffalo Inn and Spa. We rented a great little cabin, did a little bit of shopping, played our favorite card game, ate yummy food, and even had spa treatments. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Bobbi Jo, Mom, Grandma Irene, Me, Tricia, and Jen. We had a nice visit with my Grandma. We don't get to visit her very often.

Here is our cute little cabin for the weekend.
