cool things happen when you don't have your camera

Wouldn't you know...I forgot the camera last night when we went to the lake again. Don't worry, I know no one needs to see anymore pictures of our cute little dog at the lake. (I know I'm competing with the adorable babies that are being blogged about!) haha...But, the one night I forget the camera I catch the biggest fish I've ever caught! I couldn't believe it.

Justin and I took a canoe out on the lake - prepared to enjoy a nice relaxing time of fishing. I could really care less if I caught anything because we weren't going to keep any fish this time to bring home. Too bad we hadn't brought the cooler, because if we had, the large bass I caught would have been our dinner tonight! I'm usually pretty good at reeling the fish in and taking it off the hook, but last night I literally screamed when I saw the fish jump out of the water! It echoed all around the lake and freaked Justin out. So...thankfully my wonderful husband saved the day and finished reeling the fish in and taking it off. We considered keeping it for a few seconds, but thought better of it. Plus...Jazz was freaked out, too. The fish was bigger than her!

Anyway...it was a fun night of fishing...something Justin and I love to do. Our dog is fitting right in with us. She still loves the water. She jumped right out of the boat last night and swam around for a little while. She's fearless. She's funny-looking now, though, 'cause Justin and I gave her her first haircut! We haven't done her head, yet, so she's got a tiny body with a big head! She looks hilarious, but still adorable. We're contemplating a trip to the beach, just so we can see her in the waves. We'll see how the weather is the weekend!

After choir practice, Justin and Jayden were swapping fish stories and Justin told him about the fish that was caught at the lake, but he failed to mention that YOU caught it--at least I didn't hear him say you did--good job!!
