Mother's Day Weekend

(Yep, me in all my non-makeup glory! Give me a break, Friday morning, on the lake. Nothing a hat can't cover up)
This is why I love working 4-10 hour days. Makes for long weekends. This past weekend we wanted to go fishing. They stocked Tibblefork early this year, so we wanted to get on the lake before the summer rush. Not much luck. It was windy and kinda chilly, but really fun. I out-fished Adam! I caught the first, him the second fish, and I the third and last! Hayley-2, Adam-1. And I also got to try my new waders and float tube out (not holes in either I'm happy to say). The float tube is a little smaller then I'm used to, but nice. I love that it looks like I'm sitting in a baby floatie, so funny. All in all, it was a fun day up in the canyon.

Getting ready to catch the first one and swimming to the middle of the lake
It was such a beautiful day to be outside.
Here's me with my first fish. No close ups, cause we try to stay away from eachother so we don't hook someone when casting.
Adam is so good at unhooking the fish. I'm still grossed out by the texture of their skin, plus I like going home with my hands smelling like scented lotion, not trout :)

Hope everyone's weekend was as fun as ours and that you spent at least SOME time outside!
