♥ Weekend Fun ♥

After a couple of weekends of working on the staircase and around the house in general, we welcomed a little weekend trip to Alabama to my brother and sister-in-law’s house, along with mama and daddy.

We got lots of hugs and kisses from those two littlest nieces of mine……..Sydney and Ellie. My oldest niece, Laci, rallied the little ones together for this photo for me.

Luke, Sydney, Ellie & Laci

I sure wish I had gotten a picture of Ellie doing the "hambone". My daddy taught her.  She was so cute doing it with all her heart in her skirt!  :)

The men were able to fit in two fishing trips….one Friday night, which was their best night, and then again for a little while Saturday evening. They didn’t get out on the water until 7:30 p.m. or so on Friday night and didn’t make it home until well after midnight. They had a really good night for fishing. I think between the three of them that night, they caught 174 lbs worth of fish.

Jason caught his biggest fish ever...........a 20 lb. catfish. It sure does look bigger than that in this picture, but that’s what the scales said.

My brother’s record is a 29 lb. catfish also caught there in the Tennessee River, so he didn’t beat his own record that night. But he still got a big one!  He’s always on a quest to beat that record though.  :)

Pop (my daddy) caught a big one Friday night too.  Can't remember just how big but I believe it was somewhere around 14 lbs.

The women and kids did a little bit of shopping and a lot of eating and just hanging around the house so the kids could play.

We always sit up way too late and never get enough rest, so I’m sure as soon as we leave, they probably crash, because I know we do when we get home!

It was a wonderful weekend! And who would have thought that MY brother would have five kids! I love it!


I have another treat for you tomorrow! I have another long time blogging friend that will be my guest for a Sunporch Chat! I’m going to just let it be a surprise. She is a kindred spirit……..I know you’ll love her!  Be sure and come back tomorrow!  You won't want to miss it!

Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great day!  :)
