Deep Sea Fishing

It has been quite a busy week and I have to start my blog off with an explanation of the title. Erin, Erik and Matt went deep sea fishing with my Dad and the Lions Club in Pixley. They stayed Friday night in San Louis Obispo, and met the boat on Saturday in Morro Bay at 7 in the morning and took a three hour trip out to sea. Erin caught 6, Erik caught 9, Matt caught 3, Dad caught 7 fish. Everyone did ok on the way out, but once the boat stopped, Matt got sick. He really wanted a Jesus complex and walk on water back to shore, he even contemplated swimming back! You know Matt is sick when... Any how they learned the ins and outs of quick filleting fish and it is amazing how small a huge fish become without all of its stuff. The ship staff also cooked up some of the fish (which Matt was no where near) and Erin actually tried some and liked it. So yes a miracle did happen, just not the one Matt wanted in both cases. LOL. Matt was happy when they started back to land, and they even let Erik drive the boat. Erik said the instruments were really cool, because part of the GPS system also showed where the fish were. They had a great time.




I and the little guys hung out for the day with a friend here in Bakersfield. She showed us some cool places that I will probably have to ban myself from because there was sooooo many cute things I wanted. We also went to the church for the annual service project, and worked on blankets. The boys created 4 ink drawing squares, 2 shaving cream squared, tied a quilt, and went back to my friends house and finished a blanket she had cut out. She also has a business on ETSY.com where she has a few products. One is a flannel cone that you use on baby boys so they don't sprinkle on you. Man could I have used that when my boys were little. So if you need some let me know and I will get you the link to order. They come in so many designs and are sooo cute. She also does burp rags and toys. I got to make a couple in the process of helping. Long story short had a GREAT day.

Well we have a new member in our family that is now wearing glasses as of yesterday. He looks so cute in them. He doesn't have to wear them except when he is reading to keep his eyes lined up. We found out he has CVIN palsy, which is a damaged nerve in the brain stem that is suppose to keep your eye muscles in horizontal line. It was miss diagnosed as torticules as a baby, but the nice thing is they can teach him to line up his eyes. So this is a picture of the big guy in glasses.

Well that is it for now, off to bed.

I am assuming it is Erik in the glasses. We'll be excited to see him. the Deep Sea fishing trip looks like it was a success even if Matt was a bit rocky.
