A few weeks ago Noah and I went on a Mother/Son Fishing Trip thats put on every year by the PTA. Noah was SUPER excited and I was well......ummm......excited to see his face light up. I had never been on a charter fishing boat, dont remember ever doing any "real" fishing and I get sea sick. So I was a little nervous as to how this was going to turn out. We took 3 charter boats out and a month before was sign up's, along with sign up's came phone calls to sign up for "boat 2". This was really a big deal in these 6 year olds life. All they talked about was boat "2" it was so funny watching these boys talk up boat "2". As promised boat "2" was the "cool" boat to be on. Every boy in Noah's class and most of his soccer team were on boat "2". The kids had such a great time. We had these deck hands that were supposed to be there for help but we really could have left them at the dock. After Noah and I lost our 1st 5 fish I realized it was time to get dirty. Noah was so bummed out that we kept losing our fish. So up went the sleeves and hair and it was pretty much over from there. While I had a blast with my little man I have to say that fishing is gross and smelly. I did not find a new love for fishing and will only be going fishing once a year with the Hampton PTA. And how did Dad feel about his 1st born and wife going on a fishing boat? Well he was excited for us but made sure he knew every little detail. And I guess it didn't hurt that he had duty that day so every little call from a boat could be heard by him. It did make me feel better knowing that Dad was on duty in case something happened ;)

I had all these great plans on posting every week after baseball and to post all these great pictures of Noah, Dad and the team. Well as we all can see that never happened. Turns out when you have 1 son on the team, a husband coaching, 2 other little ones to attend to and somehow I took on the role of "team Mom" you don't have much time to snap a picture let alone remember to take a camera with you. So our season has come to an end and we all had a great time playing baseball this year. Ben did an awesome job as "coach" and Noah really enjoyed playing ball with the guys. Our team was filled with great kids and some fun parents as well. It did get crazy for me sometimes trying to keep 1 eye on Bryce, either snuggling Chloe or keeping 1 hand on the stroller and somehow getting 10 over excited 5 and 6 year olds in line ready to hit, staying off the hill, exchanging helmets or getting our hats and gloves back on to take the field. But we didn't loose a child nor did anyone get hurt so I guess I did a pretty good job. Here are some pictures that I somehow snapped at our last game of the season.
