It was THIS BIG!!!

Posted by Picasa

I lied.

I said no more vacation stories.

I lied.

Chad was tying the boat to the dock and the kids and I were chatting about their fishing trip.

Cole had caught a rather large fish and was showing us just how large.

Of course each time we asked, his hands were wider apart.

He is just like his Father.

While we were talking I asked what happened to his life jacket.

He looked down.

He saw nothing wrong.

Then he proudly announced that he had buckled it himself.


Are you sure Daddy didn't help?

I guess the teasing got to be too much when Chase and Claire piped in.


Cole walked down the dock, turned around and gave me "the look".

And then he announced he was walking home.

That is one big old fish.

I bet that fed all 5 of you all vacation long.

Sue said...

Now was it really that big or has he learned the fisherman rule of exaggeration? Very cute pictures! Of course you had to include them! I love vacation stories.

Krystyn said...

Oh, the fishing tales are exaggerated already!

So cute that he did his life jacket himself.

How far did he get before he decided it was too far to walk home?

Hailey said...

Way too cute!

beth said...

Too funny!

The look on his face in the second picture says it all.

Heather @ A Boy, A Girl, A Pug said...

Cute Cute! What a handsome young man!

BTW, I think it must be a guy thing to exaggerate!

snow said...

Just freeze him right where he is now--he's so cute in those pictures! Those fishing/hunting genes are pretty dominant I'm afraid.


amanda said...

glad you lied friend.

i wanted more wendi on vacation pictures.


they did not disappoint.

Mamasphere said...

That is exactly what my daughter's life jacket would look like if my husband did it, lol. Though with the way my brain has been operating lately, there's a good chance it'd look like that if I did it, too.

Your sense of humor is my favorite. And that kid of yours is adorable.

Can I just tell you how much more I love you for taking pictures of his mad moment rather than anything else? Because I DO!

Grammy Staffy said...

Wow that was one big fish that Chad caught! What is wrong with the way his life jacket is fastened?....looks great to me...did he put on his shoes before he started his long walk home?

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

That is SO funny! I didn't even notice the life jacket until I read the story. hey at least it was hooked right?! :)

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

oh, don't we live for "the looks"!!

Kristen said...

Oh I love that he is using his hands to tell you how big!

That little Cole is just too cute!! :)

Loving the vacation pics!

Chris said...

Never question the size of a man's fish!

Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

Love the story, love the pictures, love Cole! And YOU are loving that new camera! The orange of the life jacket is so vivid! Sounds like you had a great time - I'm so glad! At least now I can forgive you for your quick and stealthy departure!

Simply Shannon said...

Those pictures are awesome! Too funny.

leah said...

i think the third pic is my favorite. you can see how those little swim trunks are barely being held up by two little cheekers. :)

just jamie said...

My gosh, THAT is a cute family (and a cute story).

Lauren in GA said...

You lied?!

Liar liar pants on fire...

heh, heh, heh...I miss saying that...sorry.

I like the way he has his life vest buckled...the zig zag approach is for maximun safety, I'm sure.

I loved catching up on all your posts. I hope you get your laptop. You offered a compelling plea.

This cracks me up!! We get "fish" stories from Cheney all the time. Chandler buckled her own lifejacket yesterday was completely wrong, but she was so proud that she did it herself!! I love their little personalities!! It makes life so fun!

The Reed's said...

Sounds like your vacation went well..

I love the look he gave you.

I agree with Snow, freeze him right

now cause he is so stink'in cute.

Elaine A. said...

So, how long did it take for him to get home? ; )

Cute pics!
