How to crab correctly

The Friday we were all at the beach Kevin, Steve and Michael set about fishing for crabs for dinner. They set up traps at both our houses and canoed back and forth checking on them until they grew weary of that and began actually fishing for them with poles and nets. They caught about 20 or so, which was pretty impressive. Kate helped. Kate knows, though, that you need to lull the crabs into a false sense of security by convincing them you are nothing more than a harmless bunny. The place was littered with bunnies, so the crabs surely think nothing of seeing one on the dock.

It's a Christmas Story come early. Have these been saved to the
"Put on Display When Kate is 13" folder?

I missed the blog while you were on vacation. Glad you are back. Big question - did Kate fly a kite?

Who is the crabby's ally? His friend? The harmless squirrel and the friendly rabbit.

Just a harmless bunny. Not a plastic explosive or anything. Nothing to be worried about. I'm just here to make your last hours on earth as peaceful as possible. Don't mind this – just, doctor’s orders and whatnot.

-Brooklyn, Kate did fly a kite. I have so many pictures of the event that I have saved them for another post. Meanwhile, check out this blog - http://worstmamaever.blogspot.com/. We're keeping score and I'd wager you're competitive enough to want to join the game.

Hee Hee hee. The pictures of her crabbing in a bunny suit are just so funny and priceless. I am still giggling.
