Dani: ‘I’m coming to visit!’
Cousin: ‘Want to fish for surf perch?’
Dani: ‘Of course I do. I’ve got the perfect hat.’
That first night I was blessed with a real treat:
Cartoon snuggles with this little princess!
Dani: ‘How early do we have to leave in the morning?’
Cousin: ‘Like, 7?’
Cousin: ‘I’ll buy donuts. And we have a Keurig. So coffee can be ready in one minute.’
Ben caught the first fish!
I hooked one!
But then I lost him.
Story of my life.
(I assume he just got intimidated when he realized how pretty and successful I am.)
Selfies to make me feel better!
It’s shocking that I didn’t have a more successful day,
Just look at that sound casting technique:
Dani: ‘There was so much weight on the line, it was really hard to cast.’
Cousin: ‘It was two ounces..’
Dani: ‘…that can’t be right.’
Cousin: ‘I know that you’re a strong, independent woman who doesn’t need a man. But if you want, I can cast for you. We don’t have to tell anyone.’
Whether I took him up on his offer stays between he and I.
Here I am not complaining about being cold and wet and having crampies:
After a much needed nap to sleep away a heart-wrenching day of fishing,
It was time for some giggles and selfies.
Dani: ‘What’s for dinner?’
Dani: ‘It’s been a looong time since I’ve had a chili burger. Let’s make it a double. I just finished my homework and I’d like to celebrate.’
Waitress: ‘I’ve worked here since October. I’ve never seen anyone order a double chili burger.’
Cook: ‘I can barely even finish a single.’
Dani: ‘I’m declaring this is the end of swimsuit season for me. I need to do this. I need to prove that the cook is a weak, weak man.’
After dinner, there was nothing to do but lay on the couch and take selfies while my tummy did battle with a whole cow and a can of chili.
I wasn’t completely lazy for the rest of the night,
At one point I moved to the floor.
Weekends are fun.
Adventure is fun.
Family is fun.
