however I manage to capture a few pictures on our first day on the lake.
headed out for the day.
Jackson wanted nothing more than this donut.
My wonderful, amazing, 'everything I continue to dream of' husband.
Our first Buttercat of the day. We were pretty excited - he was trilled.
However, after weighing it Aaron was a bit disappointed. Weighing in at 37.5.
He's caught every 30 lber, every 30 + ounces but can't quite reach 40lbs.
So we continued.
My turn next. I prayed that CAT did not come off the hook.
17lbs, I don't know who was more proud - him or me.
&& that's about it with the fish pictures. As I explained, it was really cold. You can see both of us adding more clothing as the day continued. The only one content was Jackson. We caught 2 more buttercats in their
teens before we wrapped the day up.
I absolutely love fishing days like this with Aaron.
Its incredibly relaxing. We don't do a whole lot but I think that's what I love about it.
There are no distractions. Just me & him (well... & this time we had Jackson) with all the time in the world.
... until the line goes off. HA!
Other happenings throughout the weekend:
We saw four different bald eagles on this day. Wow. Crazy.
They were all fishing too.
We eat dinner at Coasters, which was an excellent seafood bar/restaurant
that.... was connected to a strip club. Weird?
No. We did not spend out love weekend in the strip club.
We ended up NOT fishing on Saturday after due to the rough water &
weather forecast. It snowed that night, how fun!
Jackson is so spoiled he is used to getting something delish when one
returns from 'dinner' (a steak bone) - he thinks he is human.
Well... we dined at a seafood place therefore we thought, " he'll get a bone tomorrow night. We will
get some chicken at KFC && he'll be fine".
KFC && Bojangles (the ONLY two fast food restaurants around) both had NO chicken
for 20 minutes. WHAT? So Jack got a personal steak from Waffle House... yeah, he's THAT spoiled.
Amazing weekend. Perfect way to spend Valentines.
No roses. No chocolates (except from my nieces/nephews). Just QT with Aaron.
EXACTLY how I want it. It's always perfect. I look forward to it every year!
