Boys and Slimy Things

Keenan has been wanting a pet snake for a while. Our neighbor across the street has a baby boa constrictor he was hanging outside with on a day Keenan was visiting. Our neighbor was cool to let Keenan handle the snake and gave him a little science/biology lesson too.
Keenan and Andrew were turning over stones and digging up earthworms together. The goal: Fill up Andrew's critter catcher attached to his belt. Don't know what they're gonna do with them.......

Non Farewell Picnic for Rebecca

Rebecca was going to be leaving for college in Portland,OR that week, but at the last minute decided she wanted to stay and go to school locally. Since Mom already had a picnic planned and the family looked forward to hanging out and meeting Rebecca's new boyfriend Dave, it turned into a NOT going away party.
Anna just heard Aunt Becca wasn't leaving and is quite relieved and happy about it.
Jacob doesn't know what to say-he's letting the news sink in.
Aunt Kimmy gives him a comforting and reassuring hug.

Uncle Bob comes to Visit

Dad's older brother Bob and his girlfriend Lori came to visit us from New York.

We went fishing out of Seward with "Gone Again" Charters. Everybody caught dogsharks. Only Jerry Sutton caught any halibut. Uncle Bob got a couple nice Rockfish. But it was a gorgeous day with glassy seas,so it was well worth it.
