Happy Labor Day!

Labor Day is a day off for most people in the United States. Not me. Nope. I was working. One of the "joys" of working at a non-profit. Oh, well. We all had a very nice day yesterday, so that kind of makes up for having to work today.

Pitchfork Boy and his family came down and we all went to Fortescue for fishing and fun. It was a wonderful day. If I had it to do all over again, there isn't a single thing I would change about that day. The weather was perfect, the kids were fabulous, the fish were biting, what more could you ask for in a summer day?

Here is daddy Luis fishing while Zach and Danny are playing in the water.

Zach (aka Pitchfork Boy) was the official "Releaser of the Fishes."

In between "releases", he also did quite a bit of exploring. Here he is with one of his finds - a horseshoe crab.

Here is little brother Danny doing his "babuskha woman" impersonation.

And here is mommy Kris and little Lexi playing in the water.

Beautiful day!

P.S. No fish were harmed in the making of this blog post.

Ok, do you call him pitchfork boy to his face?? If so, you better get him good b-day and Christmas presents.

25 days and counting 'til we get back to the beach!

Looks like great fun...

What a great day! And no hurt fish! The last time I went on a fishing trip, I got hooked in the leg. No more fishing for me. I love to spend days at the beach.
