Swordfish and Tim Hawkins

On Friday, Dad took us all out to do a day trip to a few places. First, we went to Lake Waccamaw and we saw 4 wild alligators! Now, we are mountain people, and alligators do NOT congregate up in the mountains! We were all looking at them and Mama was taking pictures like crazy! Benjamin saw one and he covered up his eyes with his hands and started screaming, "I'm not looking, Mama! I'm not looking, Mama! Get me outa this mess!" Who knows where he learned that little part about the "mess".....

Later that evening, we went to a seafood place. The only seafood restaurant I can really remember going to is our Mountain Surf, the squatty little seafood place up in the mountains. So, going into this big building with a whole bunch of aquariums, was quite the new experiance. I had never seen sushi before either. GROSS.... I didn't try it (my Dad didn't try it, and if he doesn't try it, it's a big no-no!), but I DID try swordfish!!! It tasted a lot like tuna steak! It was really good! I just wish I could have seen it's nose! :)

Well, that's the 'Swordfish' part, so here is the 'Tim Hawkins' part:

I hope you enjoyed that! :)

Benjamin, the free throw shooter!

The picture above was taken with my video camera/digi cam. Today Benjamin and I went down to the basketball court and shot some hoops! Benjamin was trying to shoot some free throws, but he kept shooting straight up. smileys After getting bopped in the head a few times, he started covering his head with his hands, ducking, and running forward. sign smileys It was really amusing and cute! Maybe (if I can figure out how) I will get a video of him doing it and post it on here!
