Trip to Bama - Part 3

What trip to Alabama would not be complete without a little fishing. Max, Tyler, and Boompa went out for a boat ride and then did a little fishing off the pier.
Tyler said Max was a pro in casting.  He must take after his mommy.
Tyler said the boat ride was a success and that Max loved it but all I heard about from Max was the fishy he caught. I am so glad that Max is getting to experience a little bit of what makes our childhood home so special, and soon so will Cami.

Max got so into fishing that he was even watching it on tv with Boompa. We might need to sign this kid up for the junior rodeo (that's fishing rodeo for all you Texans).

Cami was not as entertained by the fishing on tv.
At the Faison house we enjoyed the theater room and all the doggie action. At one point in our trip there were 5 dogs staying at MiMi and Papa's along with all of us kids.

We wrapped up the trip with a celebration of me turning the Big 3-0! Tyler & Kate threw Laura and I a surprise birthday party. *Laura and I have celebrated our birthday together every year (minus 1) since 2003.* It was a definite surprise and I was in shock throughout the entire party.

Shocked with the fact that Kate and Holly love me enough to fly in from Charlotte and Denver, Tyler could plan and keep it a secret (probably helped that he was traveling with Catfish and then we had a baby right before the event), and that I am that lucky to have such thoughtful friends and family.

The party was perfect in that it had old friends (some of which I haven't seen since our wedding in 2006) and was filled with lots of life memories (thanks to Kate). Oh and did I mention it was 80s themed and Tyler had my favorite childhood birthday cake there (Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip cake). Everything was a huge hit with Max from all the cake and balloons to the jumpy house. Max still thinks every birthday cake is for mommy's birthday and all presents are for Camille, it's been over a month now. Little does the kid know that the next big event will be his birthday where the cake and presents will be all for him.
