Cuyamaca Lake

Our friends the Fukushimas invited us to spend a day with them at Cuyamaca Lake to go fishing. How could we say "No" when Atticus has been begging us to take him fishing on a daily basis since summer started. Also, our friend is a professional fisherman so we knew we would be guaranteed to catch a fish!
A boy and his Tackle Box!

As you can see, our girl is a very "girly girl"!
Waiting patiently for the fish to bite.

Emerson thought she caught the catch of the day but she reeled in some grass instead.
Now, that's a fish!
That's me pretending I caught the fish. You would think that I would be an expert considering fishing is all we did as a family growing up. But nope, still have never caught a fish in my life!
Atticus thought that he could catch a fish better if his fishing pole was closer to the water.
Patience paid-off!
Thanks Jolene for inviting us. We had a lot of fun. We especially loved the delicious, fresh fish we had for dinner!!

Newport Beach

My best friends Kori and Jeff were vacationing in Newport Beach so we spend the day with them.
Atticus, Emerson and Graham were on a mission to build the best sand castle they have ever built!
I definitely think it was the best sand castle they have ever built!
