Over Too Soon

I truly wish I wasn't writing this post just quite yet! I was NOT ready to leave the coast and head home. I was willing to let the boys miss school tomorrow, but Richard has some work stuff he has to take care of tomorrow, so....here we are. We had the most perfect, incredible weekend EVER!!!! The weather ended up being absolutely beautiful. August in South Louisiana is always awful, but we lucked out this weekend. There was an awesome breeze the whole time and no humidity! We drove home and went straight to the back porch to soak in some more. We know it will be scorching hot again very soon!

I had so much fun with my new camera, but halfway through the trip it started messing up. I had uploaded pics from the morning and then put the card back in the camera. When we went out again, the camera would let me shoot a pic but then flash "err". It would reset when I took the battery out, but do it all over again. I was NOT happy, can I tell you? I was pretty sure it wasn't anything major, but there were so many pictures I wanted to be taking. I am trying to not be too upset about it. When we got home, I put another memory card in and it worked fine. I then put the old memory card back in and it works now...I don't know if that makes it better or worse!!! Frustrating!!!!!!! I guess I'll be heading to the camera shop tomorrow.

I did get some great shots, though. Get ready, I'm loading alot! These all came straight out of the camera.
I don't usually enjoy waking up before the sun is up. When it looks like this, though, it's definitely worth getting out of the bed!







It's going to look like I totally ignored Bryce, but we had a guide take us out and he and Richard were on a different boat. Had my camera worked the WHOLE trip...there would be more of Bryce and Richard.
This is pure joy...he was so excited he could hardly contain himself!

Bryce, Richard and Richard's dad.

This boy could do this ALL day long! He cried when it was time to leave.



How about that?!?! Prissy girl can fish!!! I even bait my own hooks!









Not bad for a morning out!!





All the boys: Richard's brother Christopher, Richard's dad, Richard and our boys.



Dad and his shadow. Braden wants to be involved in everything. Monkey see...monkey do! That's awesome. He'll have to take his brothers when dad gets too old ;)

My old camera is on ebay, and the auction ends tonight. I'm hoping there are lots of people waiting to fight for it!! I'll be a nervous wreck!

I'm subbing this week for the computer teacher that replaced me. She has the FLU! I can't believe we are starting with that already. I hope we don't get it!! I am not looking forward to being up there, but I did call the secretary Friday afternoon and told her I couldn't be there first thing Monday morning. Thank God!!

Have a great week!!

You are so brave...I am so scared of all those icky things. I would never be holding a fish so I'll have to live through you.

I love those pictures they are absolutely gorgeous!

Hope you get the camera thing figured out...always irritates me when stuff like that happens. Mine messed up alittle at Allie's birthday and wouldn't take the shot all the time...ugh....now it's working fine so I have no idea what was going on. Wish that kind of stuff didn't happen though.
