Gather 'Round the Campfire

Fishing opened at Topsy Reservoir this weekend and after spending the winter bundled up and cooped up, we were all ready for some outdoor fun. We packed up our fishing poles, some wood for a fire, our camp chairs, and headed out Saturday evening for a little cat-fishin'.

Let me share my weekend with you in highlights:

On Friday, Nate's school hosted a free movie night in the gym. To celebrate his new bunkbeds, he had a sleepover with two good friends. We went to the movie then came back to play legos, bey blades, and army guys.

On Saturday, the boys woke up early and the weather outside was beautiful. I took a bunch of old blankets that were headed to the Goodwill and fashioned a "fort" in the backyard. It was the perfect place to "hide from the Zombies" or so I'm told....

We have a new addition to our family right now. Marc found this cute stray dog in the woods. We've had the dog listed on craiglist, facebook and several other places but so far no owner. For now "Drake" is with us.

Nate and I headed out to pick up snacks for our fishing trip and we were surprised to see the Oscar Mayer wienermobile in the parking lot!

 We headed to Topsy on Saturday evening and it didn't take long for Marc to catch a catfish.

 The reservoir was beautiful and peaceful (till our crew arrived lol)
 To help celebrate Marc's birthday, several of his friends joined us. These boys love fishing!

 Of course, it gets better when the sun goes down. It's time for smores!!

It was a great weekend! Now it's back to the grind!

As I head into this week, I'd ask for your prayers. My family could really use a few. He'll know what for:)
