Fish and Bonfires in Kentucky

So the planets and the stars aligned and it turns out Andrew had a TDY to Kentucky the same week Becca was in town visiting her mom, so we packed the kids into the van and headed south for a few days!  I miss having Becca around, she is just such a wonderful friend but I feel blessed that if we can't be close at least we are able to see each other quite often with us living in Dayton and only being a little over 2 hours from her Mom's house.  Anyway, we had a ton of fun visiting with Becca, John, Hailey, and Wes and Becca's family and like always we stayed very busy!  There will be a few different posts from our time in Kentucky and these are from one day when we went fishing on their lake and then had a nice bonfire to roast marshmallows and make s'mores.  All of this of course in between crazy rain storms that caused lots of damage and flooding!  So much fun and wonderful memories!

Aww, my sweet friend Bec doing some fishing!

Olivia actually turned out to be the master at fishing, catching the 2 biggest fish of the day!
She even insisted on kissing them before throwing them back in the lake!

Group shot of the fishing activities.

Abby also became an old pro
She was baiting and unhooking fish all by herself by the time the afternoon was over!

Wes taking a break!

Daddy, Abby and her fish!

Kissing the fish goodbye!

Even when you are out enjoying nature, nature calls!!!

Brooke and Brittany are Becca's twin niece's and they all had a blast fishing together!

Bonfire time!
