We go fishing!! It is always an exciting experience to load up the car with our fishing poles, worms, tackle box, bug spray, sunscreen, and some food and drink. We drive to a lake, bait our poles and cast into the water. We sit and sit for most the morning, watching the girls play and waiting anxiously for a bite on our line. So far this year all our time has been spent waiting...no fish. Our latest adventure was on Saturday and we didn't catch a single thing. I was hoping to cook some delicious trout for dinner but had to settle for chicken instead. Today I googled "trout fishing" to look for some tips to help bring in the fish. I found some great advice and now I am ready to attempt a new fishing excursion ASAP! Whether we catch any fish or not, we always enjoy this fun pastime! Enjoy some pictures from our last outing and hopefully I will have actual pictures of fish on my next fishing post.
~~Syd and Morgan sitting on the dock and eating rice cakes while they wait for the "big one." (Don't worry their lines were cast out past all that moss ;)
~~That is a rice cake in Sydney's mouth just in case you were curious.
~~Morgan helping daddy.
~~Sydney, Morgan and Carter (our friends Britton and Jessica's little boy) trying to catch "moss fish." After a while they gave up on traditional fishing and would stick sticks into the mossy water and pull out big moss fish. If only adults were that easily entertained. :D
~Sydney has grown up so much in the last year. This was a fishing trip from last summer. This was one of the fish she caught. He was too tiny to keep so we let him go but not after a picture of our happy little camper.
