A fun day fishin'

We went out fishing on Kaua'i with or friend Terrys son Jason, on the fishing boat he works on
Had to get up really early
got out to the fishing spot and the fish were biting like crazy
I pulled in a small Tuna
and Noah Pulled in a small Tuna
then Rich got a big Yellow fin Tuna
big as in about 5lbs so not huge but much bigger then he has ever caught trout fishing LOL
Sawyer had one on the line but it got away
then Noah got a big hit...
worked hard (as you can see from the photos below) to reel it in..
they got it almost to the boat...close enough to see
and then it broke the line
they said it was a 15-20 pounder (maybe 3-4 feet or so)
it was a super fun day!

 Noah and Jason workin it in...

This is how i fish lol

 In the end.....

A little Taste of Paradise...

Week 1....Great Fun, Great Weather, Great Waves, Great Food, Great Beaches, Great kids, Great Sons, Great Friends, Great Husband, Great Sister, Great Time!!

Break out the tissue!

Yesterday the kids were cleaning out their backpacks.....
last night I noticed this laying on the ground

 So I opened it up and read what was written inside......
(if you cant read it then click on it and it will enlarge)
I thought I knew which one of the kids wrote it.....
but then I turned it over only to see that I was wrong....
My Macho, never show any emotions, too tuff for any affection kid.....
wrote it....
with tears in my eyes....
my mind said....
I guess their is hope for him after all....

Sweet 16


Quade and Taylor turned 16!
what the heck!!! when/how did that happen??
Taylor spent her day with friends and Quade had a hot date with Feliz!
I guess when they are 16 they are just too cool to hang out with their parents! lol
Here is a video of the blowing of the candles (or at least the attempt too)
 I apologize now for making you listen to the traditional "singing"
Taylor is officially a driver now so clear the streets....
