4th of July!!!

Oliver had a wonderful 11th birthday.  He spent the morning fishing with mom and the afternoon shooting with his dad.  He got a silly card and bike from mom, he already got some miles in. Being 11 is going to be fun!

Mom wishes she had a poem or some beautiful way of saying, that she no longer can write a daily blog about Oliver.  She's been writing and posting pictures almost every day since he was nine months old.  Mom will still update when she feels motivated and inspired.  Maybe she'll even write a better farewell to her daily blog posts.  But no matter what....there's a pretty good documentation of the first ten years of his life- which is pretty amazing.  Maybe he'll actually read it someday.

Signing off for now.  Probably not for long though.  Mom is always inspired by something.  

Birthday smiles are the best.  

He absolutely.... 

loved the horn!

Fishing at Lake Dixson.

Jason Aldean sang to Oliver!

Sweet wishes.

One doesn't mind getting his picture randomly taken......the other does.  Can you tell who it is?

More Fishing

Oliver is loving fishing camp!  Today he got to go out on a chartered fishing boat from the Oceanside Harbor.  He caught 22 fish and is making a good friend with a boy that was at the camp last year too.  Mom loves that he gets to have these experiences with camp counselors and other kids.  It's so good for him!  

The view of the ocean from the school mom picked
up Oliver today was so pretty.

Pretty, pretty, pretty!

Mom was one of the first in line.  

Putting his fishing gear in the car.  He had fun!

We came home to some more work done in the yard.
Not by mom, her hands are still recovering and she
needs a tiny break from the yard to tend to other things.

But she's inspired every time she goes outside!  

We can park in the driveway too!  

Oliver is off with his dad tomorrow.  Mom will drop him off at camp, he'll be fishing at Lake Poway tomorrow, Santee lake on Thursday, and Libby lake in Oceanside on Friday.  Mom will miss him and can't wait to hear about his camp and if he wants to sign up for one more week of it!!!

Fishing Camp

Oliver has fishing camp at the Y this week.  He loves it and is always exited to go. He is normally the fisherman who catches the most and makes lots of easy friends.  Mom is proud of him. 

On the way there he spotted a coyote.  We
were stuck in traffic so he took a pic!
See if you can spot it too.

Pick up...

He had fun but was tired!

So was mom, she spent the day cleaning
our home with our kitty cats!

We also took out the carpet together in mom's
room.  The wood floor underneath needs a 
little work....but it was time for that carpet to come out.

It's going to be a great week!
