What a busy and HOT, summer it has turned out to be! We had a great fourth of July, Lilly and Olivia loved the fireworks. David had so many it took him a couple hours to set them all off. Olivia fell asleep during them and the noise never bothered her at all, I wish I could sleep like that! It was nice to have us all together this year and celebrate together.
David fished the PAA tournament on Cherokee a couple weeks ago, which was nice because it was close enough to our house that we stayed home for it. The girls loved going to the weigh in everyday and David had a really good tournament, he finished fifth.
After that tournament David went to ICAST in Vegas. He got home Saturday morning at 1:30 AM, he got a few hours of sleep and then he had to leave for the BASS Northern Open on Lake Champlain in NY. Luckily my mom and niece flew up to our house and are watching Lilly and Olivia for us so I could make the trip with David. Being at a tournament with David and not have the girls with us is definitely a strange feeling, but I was able to go out and spend all day fishing with David and that is something we have not done in a long time, I even caught some nice smallmouths. This is a crazy tournament with 205 boats in it, I have been busy driving to different boat ramps dropping David off and picking him up. It gets really windy here and the waves get huge so instead of David driving 40 miles back to the ramp in the waves I just drive around the lake and pick him up. So I have definitely been doing a lot of running, something the girls don’t really like.I miss them bunches and with them not being here, I constiently feel like I am forgetting something.
