The day began the same as the day before.  Hot, humid, sticky, miserable.  In addition to that, I had no phone service and very intermittent internet service.

That all changed once my little buddy came to visit.  He's such a joyful little boy.  He can make anyone smile!

Could you resist those curls?


A little water fun on the deck.













I can't help myself, I love this chubby little foot!

I felt it was too hot to take him to the beach so Becky and I headed for a much needed dip after our buddy left.

The lake was wonderful.  Warm, soothing and refreshing until.....

(Insert music from Jaws here)

A fish BIT me.  Yes!  It bit me on the thigh!  Until I realized what was happening, I felt like a jolt of electricity was coursing through my leg.  All is fine but I sure had a momentary rush!

And how was YOUR day?

Cute little buddy! The fish was probably made irritable by the heat and humidity :).

Love that blond hair, Jill. My youngest son had hair like that. Scrumptious!

Bit by a fish? All part of the experience, I guess. :)

And that is why I hate swimming in lakes! Fish. Leeches. Slimy weeds. I have never been bitten on the thigh before though...just my calves and feet. On tothe adorable little guy.....I love the one where he is sort of looking to the side - like what in the world?????

What a beautiful boy....don't tell his dad I called him beautiful but in my opinion until they get their first haircut little boys can be beautiful!!

Good Grief what kind of fish bit you? I'm not much for getting in any water unless I can see my feet. I will only walk ankle deep at the beach. I was stung by a jelly fish as a child and that fear is still here.
Hugs Madi and Mom

What a cutie!

I'm not sure what I would've done if I had ever been bitten by a fish while swimming in a lake!

Jackie said...

I don't know how I would handle a fish bitting me...I might be a little creeped out. That little blondie is adorable, i love chubby feet too.

Michaele said...

Photo # 6 and 7 are priceless photos. Nothing better than water play with kids. His face is so expressive. How fun for you and the camera.

A fish bite? Boy that would get my attention.
