After church yesterday Bowen and I hurried to Sams for groceries then hurried to pick up some chicken nuggets so we could get on the boat and enjoy the afternoon. Not to rub it in but we had a little bet going on the first and best fish..I won.

Slate had his first trip to Orange Beach saturday↑

The first step is preheat an outdoor grill, my dad gave us this little grill for Christmas one year and we haven’t used our green egg since. This tiny thing is perfect for two people. Bo said you can find ’em at the Neshoba county co-op whatever that means.
