We went to Canyon Lake last night. We got there around 6pm. Maybe just before 6, I didn’t look at a clock. We stayed until a little while after dark. It was about 8pm when we left.
It was really crowded when we got there. With very interesting types of people. And their many, many dogs. Does a family really need to bring four dogs to the lake and let them run wild? Because these dogs really liked Ember. Someone just my size! New BFF!! And they’d run over.
Ember was safely on mommy’s hip or up on mommy’s shoulders, where she remained until we found a new location without dogs.
Dogs. I hate dogs around my kids.
Of course just as bad was all the cigarette smoke. Or the booze. These people really know how to partay.
But in the end, we found a decent spot (it wasn’t decent but it was better than the first couple places we tried) and we had a decent time. Well, that’s an average- the kids had a BLAST and Allan and I didn’t hate it, so all in all= decent.
Ember learned how to do eskimo kisses last week (before that but it’s a daily thing the last week). Because she doesn’t speak well we called them nose kisses. Which got shortened to nosies. So we all call them nosies now. And it’s soooo cute!
This was the second spot we tried out. The first was the one I talked about before with all the dogs, booze, and cigarettes. This one was private and pretty good. I actually liked this spot the best. There were a million cigarette butts on the ground and some litter but hey… that’s better than… well… running wild dogs. haha
Don’t get me wrong, dogs are as entitled to a lake trip as my kids are, I’ll just find a different location to let my kids play at 😉
Allan fishes strictly with lures and goes for bass. But with kids that’s not the most exciting so we use cheese (or hotdogs, worms, whatev) and go for bluegill. This cheese we brought was falling off the hooks right away so we just gave it to the kids to eat. Well, not Payson, of course.
One of the kids was telling me something. Talking a mile a minute. This is the expression I do when they just talktalktalktalktalktalktalktalkQUICKBREATHtalktalktalktalktalktalktalk. Do I look interested? I feel like my ears will start bleeding any second when they do that but I try to listen enough to feign interest.
