On Friday afternoon, when Dylan woke up from his nap, we loaded up and headed out to the beach to meet some friends!  Our friends were fishing and Tamra and Kyle decided to play a trick on Josh and make him think they had hooked something big!  Literally right as we were walking up, they realized that the joke was on them because there WAS something on the line!!!  So the excitement built as the guys slowly reeled in their catch, and as it got closer we could see the fins in the water....
It was a shark!!!  A 5'2" shark!!!  My boys were over the moon with excitement!!!  Can we say perfect timing?!!  We got there just in time to get to be in on the fun!
the big boys!
me & Tamra holding it!!
grrr...can't figure out why this pic is posting sideways but here's all the bigger kiddos holding the shark!

After the excitement wore down a little, the kiddos all played!

whats better than football?!  football in the ocean of course!!
lil man had fun playing in the sand w/ baby K!
This was definitely my first run in with a shark in the wild and I hope the only time I ever encounter a wild shark it will be on the end of a fishing pole!!!  We had such a good time ~ we're so blessed to live by some of the most beautiful beaches and have some of the greatest friends!! We are doing our best to spend as much time as we can enjoying both before we move!

Yikes!! Allen always fishes from the beach but he never catches them this big! I bet the kids were excited to see it!
