I don't know how I screwed this up, but sorry these pictures are all out of place. I felt like you wouldn't care as long as I posted them! Daddy Don decided to make the most of the trip this year and lined out a fishing trip for the boys. To our surprise, everyone was not only on board with this idea, they were excited. They left in the wee hours of the morning and set out on a 2 hour cruise to their first fihing hole.They got to sleep on the way way there which I'm sure made evryone a lot happier No one got sick and everyone caught lots of red snapper, amber jack, and grouper. The crew, i heard was great. The boys thought they were the "bomb". They even let
them come up on the top deck and check out the captains quarters. Checkout the picture of Hayden looking like Leonardo DiCapreo from Titantic! Don and the guide found out they had a lot in common and so the story of Jake and our jouney came out. He was so touched that he featured the guys on his website. Look it up gulfshoresfishing.com. Sorry I don't know how to do that fancy link. Find the picture of the boys and click on the text below it. They wrote a nice story about us. Any whoo enjoy the pictures. By the way Zach would be upset if I didn't mention, he caught the biggest one.
Tyler was in first place only by only 1/2
a pound from Hunter. Zach threw in his
last cast and caught a whopper. I think
it weighed something like 15 lbs. All in all
it was a great trip.


















Amy, I promise to get the LSU bathing suit pictures uploaded. The problem is that Mel was wrong I didn't take those pictures. The girls were posing it up and I knew if I got up and try to intervene, they would stop. So Paula and Tashia were snapping away. I will get those from them and post them.

I just went and looked at the wonderful story! It has been some time since I saw the video...and WOW, it still is as powerful as the first time I watched. I knew Miss Maddi looked alot like her big brother Jake....but WOW...the picture of him around the 6 minute mark in the tulips...I had to do a double take... I truly thought it was Miss Maddi standing there!! Your family is a true blessing...one day I am going to have the pleasure of meeting you!! You make my heart bubble each and every day you share you family with all of us!!

How cool for the guys. Love the photos - I will check out the charter website. What did you do with the fish? Will they be mounted or eaten? I am so bad at cooking fish - love to eat it - CAN NOT cook it so that it is decent to be eaten. Have fun!

Amy said...

Ahww how cool is that!? Just another was that Jake's story will touch someone else. Looks like they had a great time! :)

Kim said...

Looks like they had a great time. Checked out the charter site. How awesome! Jake will forever touch lives!! Every time I watch that video I cry like a baby. Looks like yall are having such a great time. I am so jealous. I love the beach! So glad I have been able to follow you and Mo for so long.

Stacey,

It's been a long time since I have seen the video - still touches my heart as much today as it did the first time!

By the way - WOW! Jake and Maddi really look alike - the pic of him by the tulips looks just like Maddi does now!

I'm glad they had such good luck with their fishing! My hubby and boys went deep sea fishing every year at the beach. Someone ALWAYS got sick and the NEVER caught ANYTHING. Yet, they would go year after year...must be a guy thing!

Looking forward to the bathing suit pics!

Renee said...

That's the kind of trip my hubby and boys would like. Glad they caught some big ones.

Staci,
Thanks for sharing the fishing trip pics, it looks like a great day. I'm headed to check out their website.
I love telling people about Jake's story, he was one amazing boy. He is still affecting so many poeple all around the world. I have two believe's on the wall about my computer desk, so I think about him a lot.
have a great weekend and thanks for the shout-out about the OLSU pics!

Roberta said...

Wonderful pictures! It looks like everyone had a great time and caught lots of yummy fish! I read the website and watched the video that the guide posted. It was awsome!!

snekcip said...

Nice update Staci! The pictures are wonderful! I have to head over to the site and take a look! Isn't it amazing how Jake you continually spread JAKES STORY and how everyone is touched. I guess you already knew this....but that JAKE is one special little fellow!! I'm hoping to get to meet your wonderful family on the 20th (Shake for Jake) but I believe my DIL baby shower is on that Saturday!

Kathryn said...

Wow! What a fantastic day for the boys. Those fish look great!
