Time to catch up on what my husband has decided is his new time filler--since he is no longer in school!
David has always enjoyed fishing, and we used to fish a lot when we lived in Baker.
But since we moved here and got so busy with teenagers and sports and such we just never really had time.
But when there is time, I am sure there are fish!
Back when I was in California with Danielle, David took my Dad, Loren (in the back) and my Uncle Larry (in the red) up fishing.
To bad it happened to be the coldest day they have had fishing yet.
Specially since Uncle Larry lives in Southern California, hence the crazy outfit scoured from the depths of my dad's closet!
They had a good time, though I believe Larry never got a chance to catch any totally on his own this day.
They got a nice stringer and lots of good eating out of this one.
Now a couple of days later---yes, I was still in California and David was either bored or taking advantage of his freedom.
But really, look at this face!
He does know how to love life!
Notice the snow on the mountains now!
The fishing has been great at Diamond Lake this year.
You would have to ask David if he would share his spots and the secret tackle he has been using......
Caleb is loving all the time with the guys.
So fun, since we are also seeing such an improvement in so many areas of his life right now, what a special way to bless him for his amazing work on improving his character---let him spend time with men of integrity in the beauty of God's creation!
This is our special friend, Buzz!
He and his wife, Julie, have been such an encouragement to our family.
David was blessed to spend a day on the lake with him.
Caleb's favorite spot on the boat.
Beautiful Mount Theilson with her first dusting of snow for the winter.
The day's catch!
And the final day of fishing....so far that is, was Saturday.
They were joined by Ron and Stan Green.
We attend church with Ron, and were pleased to meet his father, Stan.
This was the day of the big guys.
The fish must have settled into the changing weather, and the big ones were biting!
Caleb and David with some of the big guys of the day.
I already posted the video of David and his big catch, but if you missed it or need a good smile you can catch it again HERE
I found it very interesting that though Caleb has never video taped before he knew that the thing to film was not the actual catching of the fish, but his father's face!
Now for those of you who do not know my husband, this is really him.
He loves life to its fullest and lives it that way!
It is exhausting to live with him much of the time, but very joyous!
Thanks Ron for enjoying the day with my men, and for the wonderful video that we will always cherish!
I guess you would call that one happy kid!
The Green's catch of the day---12 beauties!
The Jordan's catch of the day---14 beautiful trout!
The largest being 3 lbs. 9 oz.
Oh, and again for those of you who do know my husband, especially my oldest children.....notice that he is wearing matching clothes! An unusual occurrence for his outings.
What a blessing upon blessing for these two.
Thank you Lord the amazing memories that have been made.
