The busiest Saturday EVER!

Yesterday HAD to be our busiest Saturday to date! We started our day REALLY early and took the kids to the fishing pond and met Poppa there so he could spend some time with his grandkids. It was a blast! The sun was H-O-T and the fish weren't biting! Still we had fun.

Poppa brought the fishing pole that I used to use when I was a kid, so it was really neat for Sarah to use it now, too. It was the cutest thing ever...she kept saying, "look Mama! I'm fishing, I'm fishing!!!"

Bailey waiting, and waiting, and waiting...

Braden with his Poppa!

After catching NO fish...we went to a coffee/milkshake shop to cool down and relax. We went to the Disney closeout store and found LOTS of great deals! I got Braden and Bailey some cute shirt for really good deals! We went for lunch and then home for Sarah's nap. During her nap, I had to go to do a mystery shop and took Bailey with me. As soon as we got home, we ate dinner and then then to take the kids ice skating. Well, that didn't go so well. There were so many cars, by the time we parked, it took 20 minutes to get inside the building and wait in line. We waited in line for 10 minutes only to see them change the signs and stopped issuing the skates for rental! ARGH! SOOO, we decided to end our day the same way it began. We took the kids to fish again...since catfish are nocturnal, we thought we'd have better luck. So we stayed our really late and past their bedtimes. It was worth it though...we caught one catfish!

Here I am with our catch for the evening. There was some huge excitement when it happened, that's for sure. Sarah was kind of crying as she was a little afraid of our fish, at least until she realized all was well.
