We Get a Pole in the Backyard

It's been a while since I last updated, sorry. Adam got a new job as an Electrical Trainee for the City of Tacoma. What that means is he's training for the Apprenticeship test in a few months and his goal is to be accepted into the Lineman position for the City. Adam, the Walker Boys and Ivan (another trainee) set a 40 foot pole to practice climbing. Random!

Oh! And we got a new truck. LOVE IT!!! It has not been named, yet.

They backed the trailer up to the retaining wall. Put the excavator on the trailer and Nathan beautifully got the excavator in the backyard.

And they began to dig. There was also many shovels, beers and a jumping jack compacter.


The King Catches a King

Holy Moly! Adam caught an 18 pound King salmon in Commencement Bay. This is the largest salmon he's ever caught! It was mighty tasty!

Again, not so blessed with great fish photography.


The fourth of July was a relaxing one. Adam of course proved himself "King Fisherman" of the group by catching the largest fish of the weekend. It was a great time, even Ryan (Adam's brother, yes biological), despite getting seasick for the first time, caught a good amount!

I'm getting a little better taking fish pictures, sorry it's blurry.

Look What WE Caught!

It's definitly fishing season and Adam has been spending a lot of his free time on the water! He caught this really ugly Lingcod, but it made great beer-battered fish. I'm not a very good fish photographer, yet.

Look at these beautiful Dungess Crab we caught out at the mouth of the Nisqually river. They made an awesome fest!
