Ever since I found the lake close to us and saw someone fishing there, I decided that's what we'd do. Of course the day we decided to go (this past Saturday) it was hellishly hot. Despite that though Brody was in heaven!! He talked about it all week, asked every single day if we could go. Now he's asking to go back. We got him his very own Cars fishing pole. He actually casted it pretty far by himself! We didn't give him a hook, of course. It came with a tire you can tie to the end and he didn't know the difference.
There were a lot of little fish swimming around us but they just nibbled on the bait. I wasn't expecting to catch anything necessarily- but one of these days I had better! The only time I ever caught a fish (we'd go every summer growing up) was with a string with a hook on it I found on the ground. I stuck my gum on it and dropped it in the water as a joke. I caught a Carp! It was my shining moment.
hyrum was so hot and sweaty so I gave him my cold water bottle and he was happy. The water looks so ugly but it wasn't that bad. It was gorgeous despite the heat! See all the little fish?
ok it's really bright outside...
better. Oh yeah my hat? Brody calls it my Perry the Platypus hat. (well, I kinda started saying it, he just caught on)
That's all I caught (pond scum). heh heh
Enjoy a little video of our afternoon. It was a great start to a wonderful long weekend with my boys..
