Mush fishing. Not by me, but by the men-folk who enjoy spending large amounts of time on such things.
He's proud of that one...but you should see the one that "got away!"
So here's the thing about Hilton Head.
When the life guards rent these sailboats, they typically spend about 2 and a half minutes on a safety-use-of-sailboat type presentation and then they send unsuspecting people out into the ocean.
Should I even need to mention that Todd is a bit weird?
This summer, our brave rescue hero took a ropes course and also played a victim in a bridge rescue rappelling exercise. He's handy that way. He applied for a job as a real officer of the law, too. And then turned it down because he has two more semesters of school.
He escorted three (not one, but three) beautiful blond ladies to dinner several nights during our vacation.
But this is HIS lady. (His sister & her bestie don't count.)
Oh, and there's a new Grand-dog in the family. One of the cousins has adopted a fluffy new creature.
He's kind of huge already. He hasn't been introduced to Lucy. He's probably bigger than she is. I know his feet are bigger than my daughter's!
My twins and Gour twins in the pool.

I may be slightly biased, but he is undeniably the most adorable newborn I've ever seen in person.
My kids were all kind of odd looking for a few months. Scraggly, scrawny, bald, wrinkled, blotchy. Clayton's got perfect pink skin...flawless. Little rolls on his legs. A head full of fluffy hair.
Those baby noises! And that baby scent!
Just think! We get to hold him and spoil him and coo over him and rock him and ooh and aah over him...
and then give him back!
So that's it.
I'll return in mid-August and you can help me work through my emptying nest!
