The rest of the Fishy Tail ...

Taking after his fishing dad, Beniam was able to haul in 2 ! One was a beautiful big bluegill and the other was a nice sized bass. Look at the joy on this little guy's face and you can bet your bottom dollar his dad sure is proud.
Way to go Beniam !!!

This is sooooo much fun Dada.

You can tell my son Chris is really serious about going after these aquatic creatures by all of the paraphernalia hanging around his neck. But the man knows his stuff and loves his sport !

Isaac, you'll get one next time.
The next man coming up in the ranks of the fishing world is none other than our little Asher. I think he was really surprised to actually pull in something, thanks to Uncle Chris. Boy this is fun !

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue ...

Once again the grandkiddos took part in the Martin Ranch Winery Fishing Derby. Its becoming a tradition each spring to pack up all the fishing gear and chairs, buy worms, find the sunscreen and make the 45 minute trek over the hills to the Gilroy, San Martin area. This is where the big bass and BIG bluegill wait in great anticipation for the whistle to blow to signal the first great cast to hit the water! Here we go... and then we wait and wait and wait

Asparagus ???

Spring has Sprung !!!

Out in the country we are blessed with many sights and sounds of nature bursting forth in new birth each year. As the ground drinks in the rain and nurtures the unseen growth below, we wait in anticipation of  the glorious display our Lord has blessed us with. Thank you Father for your creation, we give you glory !!!

Our two new budding musicians !

We had the gang over recently. As the evening progressed we happened to hear a new piano tune coming from the living room. To our surprise it was the Ash man and his side kick Miss Evangeline pounding out a new tune on the ebony & ivories ! Watch out Brother Down, you might have some competition one of these years.

Wednesday dinners with the Johnson kids !

Mr. Luscious Lips

Please Sir, I want some more !!!
We've decided to have Amy and the kids over for dinner every Wednesday to help break up the week since hubby Allen is now working two jobs to help provide for his dear family. I saw these cute little ice cream cones at Trader Joe's and thought they would bring a twinkle to the kiddos eyes not to mention a sweet tickle to their tongues !

Happy St. Patty's Day

I decided to try my baking skills today making Irish "Car Bomb" cupcakes. I got the recipe from the blog "Brown Eyed Baker" adapted from "Smitten Kitchen". Both of these ladies do a great job in the new foodie world. Cant believe people spend their days posting recipes and pics of food for people they dont even know. My Granny would not have believed it !
The hubby just walked in the door from work, so I quickly placed the other half of my cupcake in his mouth, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm !!!!!!!
Here is how it progressed... 
Luck of the Irish, they sure go down smooth !!!!!
