Woohoo, up and running in time for Friday Fragments! Not sure if you passed through here during the migration to WP, but after 2 days of having a bit too much fun, I had to wipe the slate clean and start all over. It was humbling, to say the least. I am hoping that now I have the bugs worked out and have learned how to figure out what the bugs are. I love this theme and layout, but it does not play well with certain plugins that I would like to have 😦
Please holler out if you find something acting wonky. I haven’t swapped over all the links yet and get plenty of error messages.
You can always tell when we come home from the beach: sunburned faces and sand on the bathroom floors. I made the huge mistake of assuming that Alaska would be over cast yesterday for our dipnetting excursion. So guess who forgot to grab the sunscreen for her very pale children? Yes, that would be me. I am suffering along with them though. I was snickered at by folks at the gas station for my reverse racoon look. Again, humbling 😉 I was just so proud of myself that I remembered the camera and snacks and supplies for our day trip…
We had a lot of fun dip netting on the Kenai yesterday. We hung out with old friends and I got to meet a gal in real life who I have ever only emailed. This lady was instrumental in preparing me for coming to Alaska. It was a pleasure to meet her, but bummed that we didn’t get enough chat time. When folks hit the Kenai for salmon fishing, it’s really about getting the fish 😉 And that is what every wearing waders was doing!
I waded in about two feet during low tide and got absolutely stuck in the mucky bottom. I nearly lost hubby’s water shoes as I attempted to break out. So after wrenching my knees a bit, I opted to let hubby wear his own waders and use his upper body strength to pull our fish in. We got 4 and chose to come home after hubby fell on his tail bone again. I am hoping he didn’t break it like he did as a boy. But all in all, the day was a good one and we got salmon!!!!
Heard around the house:
Danny, what you got?
I think he was asking what kind of shake, honey.
Oh, a chocolate shake Noah.
Oh, dat you got!
You my mom.
Dat my dad.
Doze my thingies.
You mean siblings?
Yep, my thingies.
Mom, what time are we getting up tomorrow for fishing?
We get up at 4am.
Wow….can I sleep in the van?
We try our hand at fly fishing on Saturday. You could wish us luck. Wow, it sounds like I am willing to do just about anything for salmon. Yea, maybe I will 😉 Have a great weekend guys!!
