Fishin' in Fla

We went to visit my parents in Florida for the weekend. It was very relaxing! We surprised my Momma for Mother's Day and showed up on her doorstep Friday night. My Daddy was in on the whole thing and at was so much fun to see her reaction.

Saturday afternoon we took the kids fishing off one of the priers down from my parents house. It was a very eventful afternoon.... here is a recap!

Cha Cha and G-daddy picking peaches.

The best place to get fresh seafood in Panacea, Fla.

buying the bait!

Cha Cha caught a catfish!

Look what Daddy caught!! This was an adventure! It took 20 minutes to get him in and get the hook out of his mouth so we could throw him back!! Daddy also caught a stingray but I didn't get a picture of it.

How Sweet!

Just a quick recap of our weekend... Hope yours was great!

Looks like a super fun trip and an awesome surprise for your mom! I know there's the laundry and the unpacking, but you're making memories that last a lifetime. You and your family will always fondly remember that trip and there is nothing better.

Happy Mother's Day!!!!
