Fishin' Accomplished

On Memorial Day, my dad and I took Sam up to a lake for his first real fishing experience. And on his first cast, he caught this little guy:

In the end that was the only fish we took home. There were tons of little fish biting, but they were too small to keep. Still, our goal was to get Sam a fish, so that was accomplished.

Now, here’s another funny story. Katie had a rough experience at the grocery store on Friday. She locked Allison in the car in the parking lot, but fortunately an off-duty policeman helped her unlock the door. Then, when she got home, she saw that a gallon of milk had broken open and spilled all over the trunk. When I got home, she told me what had happened and said that she had cleaned it up as best she could. Knowing her superhuman cleaning abilities, I didn’t think about it much anymore. The car smelled bad, but I figured it would go away.

Then on Sunday we had some friends over for dinner, and we were outside talking when all of a sudden I realized that there was a problem. I opened the trunk and found that Katie hadn’t thought about the spare tire compartment. I opened it up and found a lovely little reservoir of two-day-old milk that would have rotted throughout the summer. But we eventually managed to get that cleaned up as well, and now I’m hoping the smell won’t last forever.

That is a patriotic picture. :)

Poor Katie...I locked my baby in the car the other day, too.
