Devlin helps with the catch.....

My son Brendan caught 5 fish this morning and brought them back from the beach to gut them on my patio table.....yuck!  Devlin, seeing what was going on, was really keen to help out with the slimy, smelly job and so Brendan showed him how to do it.

Devlin seemed to really enjoy himself although he was a bit peeved when Brendan wouldn't let him use the gutting knife, but the blade is very sharp and we didn't want any accidents!!

So now we have 10 fishes in the freezer!

    1. OOps that should say Fish Mongers, those Ipad's are a nightmare for changing things!

    2. Thanks for your comments Dee, I laughed so loud over the fish 'mongrels', I guessed your ipad had been auto-correcting for you....but I prefer the mongrels to the mongers!!!
      Glad you like Devlin in this outfit!

  4. Looks like both boys are enjoying themselves. Did you hand embroider the golfer? The shirt is very cute (probably not what Devlin wants to hear).

    1. Thanks very much Julie....I think this is definitely a 'boy thing'....yuck!
      Thanks also on his shirt, the golfer is an iron on applique that a friend of mine gave me.
