In between our family reunion, trek and Nate's triathlon my mom and I watched my older sister four kids so she could go backpacking with her husband.  I really wanted a cute picture of Jean and Truman, but it just wasn't happening.  This is the best I could do!

We took the kids fishing at the Midway pond {is that it's real name}?  Enoch actually caught a fish.  It was very eventful as you can imagine.  Quinn wanted nothing to do with fishing, she was more interested in feeding the ducks donuts {she fed them 12} - but once we caught a fish she was right there in the action.  Thanks to Grandma Quinn and her awesome fishing skills we got the fish off the hook {actually we ended up just cutting the line}. Quinn threw the fish back in the pond but it was too late, he had already died, so we had to 'fish' it back out!  It was rather funny.  The kids were so proud of the fish.  That night Papa Hopkinson cleaned it and fried it up for everyone to try.

The classic "fish" shot.

After our fishing adventures we played at the park!

After fishing and the park we went swimming.  Phew, what an exhausting day!

And, I think I am caught up on our blog...for now.
We have a couple more busy weeks and then maybe it will calm down!
