I can't believe that I forgot to add the story that went along with our crabby photos. While the kids were out on the boat crabbing, poor Mason accidentally fell/sat down on top of the crab basket with crabs in the basket. Per uncle Eric, Mason only shed one tear and appeared to try and "take it like a man" as he pulled several crabs off of Masons booty. When we were told the story we all laughed (of course) and I didn't think too much about it. Well that night while taking a shower, Mason started screaming "my butt burns, ouch!" Well mommy inspected the fanny and found several claw marks where the crabs had broken the skin. Well Mason suddenly became even more famous when everyone found out that crabs got his hiney.... they begged and begged to see the battle scars, but Mason didn't give in, LOL. He left the battle scars to their imagination only.

Catch of the day....

We are back from Maryland! We had an awesome time visiting Papa John, Grandma Denise and Uncle Eric! We were all sad to leave, but I am sure that the hosts are
liking the quietness that they were left when we headed back to NC! Here are
a few pics from one of their days of adventure......
The 3 stooges go crabbing, okay there was one more person but we don't
consider her a stooge... hahaha!

Mason shows off the catch!

Miss Priss checks out the crabbies!

Okay, this is how you hold the crab so that they can't pinch you!

He's already a pro.....

Getting down to business..... dig in!

Here Papa John, I have a nice, crunchy crab leg for you!

No Ashlyn, you don't eat that part of the crab!

Oh geez, I knew we would have to throw a cry fest in here somewhere!

That's all folks!!!

We are off!

We will be leaving in 4.5 hours to go to Mary-land!! Being the procrastinator that I am, I have not packed one single suitcase yet. I have had a doozy of a headache all day today and still do not feel very well. Mike is in the bed trying to get in a nap before we head off. I am rummaging around on the internet and I am still not in the mood to pack, but oh well.... we'll get there sooner or later! You guys don't have too much fun without me!

The length of God's love for you-by Rick Warren

Purpose driven connection: Daily devotional

"I know that Your love will last for all time, that Your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky" (Psalm 89:2 TEV).

Human love wears out; that's why we have so many divorces. Love wears out. I know a lot of people who are not divorced but they don't love each other anymore. There's a limit to human love; it dries up.That's why you have to have God's love in your marriage—in all your relationships—if they are going to last. God's love never wears out. God's love is patient, persistent, and persevering.Isn't it good news to know that God never gives up on you? No matter what you do, His love never gives up. It's wide enough to include everybody and it's long enough to last forever.God will never love you any more than He does right now. But He also will never love you any less than He does right now.He loves you on your good days; He loves you on your bad days. His love is not conditioned by your response. God is love and His love is given freely. It cannot be earned and it is not undeserved. Accept His love and worship Him, knowing that His love is long enough to last for all time: "And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully" (Ephesians 3:18-19 NLT).
