Fathers Day at HLR
This year our monthly weekend to the resort fell on Fathers Day.  Chad brought his fly rod so he could do a little fly fishing.  I played photographer and snagged a few good shots - this is Chad, just doing his thing.

Chad tying on a fly - dont ask which one.

Casting one into the water lillies.

 After an abbreviated stay at HLR, we came home Sunday afternoon, so Candice could take her Dad to the gun range for some target practice in preperation for the upcoming CHG class they will attend.  Turns out Candice is quite the dead eye, according to her Dad - and the guy in the next bench.  What can't she do????

Such a blessed man!  And a pretty good shot!

What a busy week - so much happened - hitting the highlights:

  • Our baby Candice, celebrated her 29th birthday on the 4th -  we celebrated with her at Ra zoo's.
  • I won a Moment of Truth award at work for saving the AHA $500,000. - very cool!
  • Finally got the kids added to our vacation deed!
  • Last night Candice and Matt hosted another backyard movie night.  They showed the movie The Burbs - one of our family favorites, when the kids were young. Candice made pretzel and sardine (chocolate) appetizers for everyone, hers didn't sound oozy and slimy, the way it did in the movie, when Tom Hanks put it in his mouth.  We sat out in our lawn chairs in their backyard under the stars, and ate Matt's homemade corny dogs, enjoyed the breeze, fellowship with new and old friends, and an old familiar favorite - good times!
