A Trip to Smith Center

A few months ago, Blake planned a 'guys weekend' with his high school friends from Smith Center.  His friend and cousin, Kyle, was coming down for a visit so Blake, John, and Nathan all planned to hang out golfing, fishing, and 'camping' (the camping they do now is stay at Blake's Grandad Lambert's hunting lodge instead of in tents...guess it's grown up camping now!).  Anyway, since I am finally feeling better, I decided to come along with Blake and bring the kids.  It turned out to be a pretty busy weekend as Eric and Laurie are now back from Korea and Blake's Uncle Ted and Aunt Eileen were visiting from Minnesota.  So we had a lot of get-togethers for meals.
It was Blake's plan to go golfing Friday night after we got there, but since John was free in the afternoon too, they decided to go for 9 holes in the afternoon.  It was hot, but there was no keeping Brooks from going too!  He even got to 'tee off' this time.

 Later that evening Papa was able to join the boys for the second 9, and I came out for a little bit to take some pictures. 
 I don't think Blake was having the best golfing day...hehe

 Keely and I got to spend some time just hanging out at Grandma's playing with toys
 They fought over the 4 wheeler a little, but at least they could kind of share sometimes
 On Saturday, Blake spent the afternoon/evening with his friends out at the farm pond.  Judy and I came out with the kids before supper so Brooks could go fishing for the first time.  He was so excited!

 Blake bought real worms to bait the hook and Brooks thought that was really cool!
  Learning how to reel in the line...
 They actually hooked a really big fish, but Blake didn't 'set the hook' fast enough because he wasn't expecting it to be so big, so it got away.  It was rather exciting, but we didn't catch anything else.  Sometime when we have more time, we will take him again and hopefully catch something!  He was at least able to see some turtles and frogs swimming around, so that was fun for him!
After fishing, Grandma and I headed back to town with the kids for a BBQ at Blake's Grandpa Lambert's.  The kids had fun riding his golf cart
 and Keely enjoyed her first hamburger!
 And Brooks tried cantaloupe and liked it! He's asking Papa here if he wants some too!
 Keely with Uncle Ted...she's so different than Brooks at this age and will actually sit with people she doesn't know real well. It's so nice!
 And here is just a picture of Brooks with his cousin Henry after church.  We thought they looked similar, at least the same color hair if nothing else!
