After Christmas, we enjoyed a couple of days at home with Chuck while he was off of work, then we all headed to Austin for a few days. Chance’s birthday was that Thursday, so we planned a small get-together of the family on his birthday, and his request was to go fishing. Grandma loves to fish, so this was fun! Grandma and Grandpa live in an RV right on Lake Travis, so after the party at their campground, we headed over to the dock to fish. It was an absolutely gorgeous day!

Don’t let his smile fool you, he was in a grumpy mood…until…
he caught the first fish!
It was so warm, pretty the boys took their long sleeves off. Can you see the fish mid-air in this one?
Grandma, enjoying the bonding time.
You can guess who got his shoe stuck in the mud…
As you can see by the hole, it was completely submerged.
There is still beauty in this all-time-lowest level lake.
Happy Birthday, Chance! The big 6 years old!!
In case you’re still hanging on with this super long post, here’s a little slideshow of his year.
