The first trip was with his two besties- his dad and Patrick. I was super excited for him to get outa town with these two. He has been wanting to do a weekend fishing trip forEVER, but with kids, work, ailments, etc...life just happens...and sometimes it really gets in the way.
Since I have NO idea what they did on their trip, I will just post pictures for our family journal.
I'm so glad these guys are best friends. And I'm so glad they make the time to make memories together. Life is too short not to have some fun together...minus the wife and kids.
A couple of weeks later, Mike went to Havasu with a friend from work. They left very early Saturday morning and camped there until Monday afternoon. Both Tim and Mike seemed to have a great time...except for that very first, very windy day.
I sent chili and stew for Mike and Tim to eat for dinner Saturday and Sunday night. Mike knows I get nervous about cooking food we love to eat for other people...just in case it didn't turn out...or something. So they sent pictures both nights of each of them enjoying their warm food. This might be the first trip Mike actually agreed to let me send food with him. He usually just wants to take stuff to make sandwiches. I always want to send food to make a hot meal...so after fishing all day they can have something warm and filling to eat. Maybe now he will agree to let me when he goes.
I love that Mike has a hobby he loves. I wish he was able to get out there more often, but I know as Blip gets bigger they will be out on the boat a lot together. I can't wait for that...for more than one reason. haha
