Fishing in Woman's Bay

These pictures are from about a month ago. Our neighbors invited us to go fishing with them just outside the base on a beautiful sunny evening and we couldn't resist. It was the only fishing we did this summer, brief as it was, and we didn't catch anything but a good time was had by all.

All I can say about this picture is... brrr!

Catch of the day! I actually 'caught' a whole plant later on but couldn't quite juggle the fishing pole and the camera and the two dogs leashes to get a picture. (-:

Joshua actually did catch a fish but it broke free before he got it reeled in all the way... so close!

While we were fishing this NOAA ship came by and I thought it looked really cool so I got a picture for my blog.

There are a whole lot of these float planes around, I see one just about every time I go into town, often more then one...so I got a picture of it, too. (-:

I think this is a cool view of the base.
Jelly fish were all over the place, very popular with kids and dogs...keeping them away was fun. Lol!

Miriam reeling in her line. What a cutie!

Samuel brought his raft and the boys had a blast paddling around, not too far from shore...Samuel's parents had the boys tie the raft to shore with a long rope so they didn't drift too far out. Clever!


There are certain advantages to being good friends with your neighbors...such as having another house available for the acting out of a boys fertile imagination...

Preparing to launch...

...and, he's away!

Zipping over the fence into our yard.

Samuel get set up...

...and away he goes!

Of course, they didn't always make it all the way over the fence...sometimes there were technical difficulties. (-:
It is pretty fun to see what these two come up with. Scary, at times, but fun. (-: They are certainly two very clever boys...let's just hope they make it to adulthood! Lol!

Babysitting Fun

Here are some pictures from when I had the joy of watching my neighbors 3 boys one evening about a month ago:

Miriam playing a game with Daniel and Matthew, two of her favorite little people.

Hmm...what are these boys up to?


Oh yeah, this looks smart...

My best kept babysitting secret! Lol!

Miriam and Daniel walking to the park, so sweet!

Matthew and I walking to the park, there are few things quite as sweet as an itty, bitty hand in yours! (-:

I think this play structure is so cool! I think these guys like it too.

The bigger kids enjoy a rousing game of tag.

Isaiah on the move!

Miriam watching over Matthew.

Isaiah's good buddy Josh.

Matthew, sporting a cool hat, sails his Lego boat on the arm of our couch.

Matthew joins in the video gaming fun...

...at least in his mind, the remote control for Joshua's robot, Sid, was close enough for him! Too cute! (-:
