This was the kids this morning as they headed off to their last (half) day of school, which isn't really school but an awards assembly (which would explain the "Monday dress")....they are both thrilled that summer vacation has FINALLY arrived! OK, OK - so am I!!! To make this day even more exciting....it is Tim's birthday today....Woo Hoo!! I'm not sure if we will go today or tomorrow, but we are all going to go see Star Trek for his birthday.
In other news, Tim was grilling our (absolutely delicious Copper River salmon) dinner last night when he said, "*****!!!! (expletive)....Clay, what kind of snake is this???!!!!" Clay ran over and looked at the (quite large) snake which was chillin' on our patio and calmly replied, "That would be a cottonmouth, dad".....Tim proceeded to throw something at it and it slithered off....and then we threw an entire box of mothballs around the yard. Which we will need to repeat tomorrow since it is supposed to rain again today. Ugh. Enough with the snakes, especially the poisonous snakes - especially near the house!!!
In other news.....Clay had a friend spend the night the other night and the boys spent all day yesterday fishing. They caught this lovely alligator gar......
And, this humongous redfish. Big enough to eat, but Clay released him. I had found the aforementioned fabulous Copper River salmon at Costco and we had that for dinner! (Delicious, by the way!!)
