      Good heavens, Jason… what a HOOT!!! I smiled till my face hurt there watchin that un! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Only one observation, Son…I’m going to pray for you if Bella is only 11 yrs old! Good grief! Good thing you shave your head or you’d be pullin out your hairs in a few years when boys come a callin! ๐Ÿ™„

      It was such fun to hear them squeeling, laughing and going nuts! What a wonderful outing for a family to share!

      Excellent! Made my weekend!

      I already have my speach ready for when the boys come to the door. It involves a cigar cutter, and im not talking about fingers. Might even be some mention of pliers and fingernails as well. water boarding come to mind a bit too.

      Amen, Brother, Amen…

      Might want to strap on a pair of pistols too!

      She’s a pretty girl… and looks a bit older than 11 for sure!

      But she was all “kid” along with her brother in those shots and misses and hook ups! I’m still laughin!

      I’m still laughing–what a great evening. When the inevitable happens try:

      Pointing at the fire pit and say start the fire (without your son’s assistance).

      Of course the 12bore cradled in your arms may help.:twisted:

      Good luck, but I think you and the Mrs. have already inculcated appropriate values in the young ones. Now you just have to sit back and wait.:D

      Looks like it was a blast!

      But that generator sure was noisy… LED Floods and batteries are a whole lot nicer. You can hear the night noises and see more fish. Once you try ’em, you’ll never go back ๐Ÿ˜€

      O’course, I don’t think you guys could have been shooting any faster as it was.

      Bella already made it clear that she would never date a guy that can’t make a fire…lol in her own words “he can play a Xbox on rainy days but if the sun is out he better want to be outside or he is gone!”

      I have 2 seelite 50 watt LEDs on the back end of my deck. Great lights and about as bright as my halogens. But ony little boat running 10 8 pound lights would be way to muck weight in lights on the deck. My halos are only 1.5 pound each. If I ever do a 1872 sea ark (maybe in a couple years when the family out grows this boat) I will run 10 LEDs 110 volt and a supper small inverter Genny.

      A plus side to the noisy Genny is the kids can’t hear the muskrats, beaver, geese, etc that bust out of the cattails 2 feet way and scare the crap out of them…lol

      Jason,

      That is Awesome! It reminded me of times I had with my kids when they were that age. My daughter just turned 26, and my son is going on 22. Enjoy these moments because they will slip away too fast.

      Thank you.
