Texas Vacation: Day Two!

Saturday (July 2nd) was the second day of our vacation in Texas and it started bright and early at 5am.  The girls were sharing a room and once one woke up from a bad dream, they were both awake and NOT going back to sleep.  That' right- Friday we started our day at 3:25am and Saturday we started our day at 5am (fun, fun!).

In the morning; Lolly, Andy, and Annalise came over and we let the kids play at the house until it was time to go to the fish fry.  Saturday was the annual fish fry for the volunteer fire department.  We go every year and enjoy a fried catfish lunch, chatting with the locals, and melting in the 100+ heat.  :)

Saturday afternoon we swam in the lake, went fishing, played cards, and grilled out.  Another great day on vacation!

 Caroline and Annalise making some goodies :)

 Elizabeth was given this water bottle when she entered the line for the fish fry.
This is her examining it while laying on the bench because "it was too hard to stand".

 Ben was my photographer :)

 Waiting in line
Ben is wearing an old t-shirt from the fish fry, we got him a new one this year :)

 Love this picture of these two!

 After lunch, Ben walked Elizabeth over to the fire fighters

 She loved putting on the jacket and helmet

 But her favorite was using the hose (of course!)

We got Elizabeth a kid's fire department shirt and she wouldn't take it off the rest of the day :)

 After the fish fry, the kids napped and the parents went swimming in the lake
This is the only picture of that event. Ha! :)

 After naps, Ben took Elizabeth fishing for the first time

 This is the first fish she caught

 So excited!!

 Grandmother was fishing as well :)

 This is the second fish she caught :)

 So proud of my girl!

 These two are eighty years apart.
I am so blessed.

Ben caught a fish too :)

 Everyone in our family gets their university flag hung from the deck when they graduate from college (or join the family)
