Default Last Few Days.....Next Few Days

Been crazy trying to fit so many things into a 7 day time period. We've done so much and there's so much left to do. Let's start with yesterday:


Finally had our big fish fry, and it was a superb hit! I cooked for 18 people, proper fish and chips.



We had bluegill, crappie, rainbow trout, kokanee salmon, and mackinaw... an excellent spread. We sliced up 10 lbs of potatoes and fried em up nice and golden brown.


The fish fry was part of my daughter's premature first birthday. Her birthday isn't until next month, but the Colorado family wanted to do a party and so the fish fry ensued.

She got STAR treatment!

Here's the birthday girl opening presents (with her brother helping)




And... STRAIGHT UP SMASHING A CAKE!




The party was a hit, and afterwards, we left the girls at home and my two Uncles and I hit the race track!





**Buck and Uncle Lance getting ready to race!




Good night... excellent fun.


Today, I took the boy to the aquarium. We saw some cool stuff, that place is really well ran!





**The Pike and muskie display (with some smallies in there for good measure)




**Seahorses




**Badass Lionfish




**Sawfish




**Piranha




**Jellyfish




**SHARK FACE!!!!






Anyway, just trying to make the last week as memorable as possible. We will miss this place.

The next few days are hardcore packing and cleaning. Wish us luck.

I did want to... but I REALLY wanted a shot at the cutbows they had in there... Must have gone 30" easy...

They also had a goliath grouper that could have about swallowed me.

It was epic... I had two oil pans going, I did trout in one pan, gills, crappie, and salmon in the other. Cooked a total of 42 fish.



In this pic, you see bluegill at the top, one rainbow trout filet in the middle, and then crappie at the bottom.

All the fish were eaten, not a scrap left over... and now my freezer is completely empty of fish. =)

Good timing, right before we move.
