Our Weekend in Pictures {fish fry}

A successful fishing trip

James & his good buddy, Chris, sure caught a nice mess of fish Saturday morning ~ 40 in total!

There's ganna be a fish fry!

James did all the shopping for these goodies ... he wanted wings to serve with the fish!

James bought a new fryer especially for this evenings fish fry!  He's had his eye on this one for a while.

James is responsible for this whole fun evening!  The ONLY thing I did was make the hushpuppies.

What a way to enjoy this unseasonably wonderful MARCH weather!!
We ate a de-li-cious meal & the fellowship with our sweet friends was the icing on the cake.
We capped off the evening by building a fire in the fire pit.
Our new neighbors, the Barnett family even stopped over for a while.

I think the best medicine for the whole evening, however, was the laughter.
We laughed til we cried nearly the whole evening through.
My face was literally hurting by the time the evening was over.
When everyone was gone, Riley summed it up when he said, 
"Mom, tonight was sooo much fun!"

Fishing is much more than fish. It is the great occasion when we may 
return to the fine simplicity of our forefathers.

But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, 
and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
