I'm not actually sure who's fish that Zac is holding here. It may be his catch but it's still not the winner (even if it is as big as him!).
Here's Jacob...did he win? Let's take a look at his catch...
Although he caught a beautiful fish....Just look at it's shape and form. I would have to say that if we were judging on looks alone he may be the winner but with fishing it's all about the size. So I'm sorry to say that no, it wasn't Jacob this time.
So now we are to Luke. Look how in this picture he's got perfect form in his "reeling" abilities. This boy is a natural when it comes to outdoor activities. He makes his Grandpa proud. I think he was a born fisherman. But we're not here to talk about his reeling abilities, we're here to talk about his catching abilities......
Look at this size of this guy!!
Yes, if you picked Luke (which non of you actually said him) then you picked the winner. Grandpa said that it was probably at 12 pounder!! I don't know how long is was but you can tell from the picture above that it came up to his chest. It's in our freezer right now waiting to be eaten. I will BBQ it soon. I just have to figure out a good way to cook it, I'm open to suggestions from all you cooks out there.
OK, so I figured that I could tell you the story behind the "big catch" but it's never as good coming from someone who wasn't even there. So here, from the fisherman himself....
After a long afternoon on the boat you have to go throw some rocks to finish off the day.
They had so much fun that day!!
Thanks Grandpa for taking us fishing on your new boat!

Congratulations.....Erica G!!!! I will be contacting her through her email and then I will give her a week to respond. If I don't hear back from her then I will draw a new winner.
Through a very random drawing including all four of my kids and their little hands we drew our winner. They have fun helping and I promise is was extremely random. Sarah actually drew the final number with a big, one tooth (that you can't really even see) smile.
Thanks to all of you who participated in this fun blog carnival. It was so much fun and I spent way too much time in front of my computer. I still haven't won anything yet but I'm still hoping that I may :)
The next giveaway is in July. I am planning in participating again.
Have a great week!!!

A couple of weekends ago, when it felt like spring was coming, we got the jumpy castle out for the kids. Notice the shorts?? It was close to 80 degrees that day!!
When we get the castle out, we usually get more kids too :) Several of the neighbor kids showed up not long after we got it all set up. It was quite the party.
Sarah really wanted in on the fun. She seemed to be content with just one of the balls from the ball pit. I'm sure that won't last though.
I will end this post with a video. You can really hear the kids in the background and tell that they are having a blast.

I have spent the last couple of days look at hundreds, yes hundreds of blog giveaways! So I decided that I should probably participate and do my own giveaway. I've never done anything like this before so I hope I do it right. All that you need to do to win is post a comment for me and let me know you stopped by. It can be as short or as long as you like. The contest will close on Friday the 25th and I will randomly choose a winner sometime over the weekend. Make sure that I can get a hold of you someway, either leave an email address or have a link to your blog. You don't have to be a blogger to enter either. I'm sorry to do this but I also must limit entries to the US only.

So what I am recommending is a three book series called the Spa Girls.
These books fall under the "chick-lit" category. I've read a lot of books and this is the first time that I had actually read a "chick-lit". I enjoyed them. I was looking for something light and fun to read and these are what I ended up with. I hope you enjoy!!
Don't forget to stop by Becky's Blog and see what other books are on the list and add one of your own too!!
