Went fishin'!

I traded in taking the kids to the beach for taking them to the lake. A former co-worker of hubby's has a lake house a couple hours from us and she allowed us to go up for the weekend. She'd been inviting us for years...we just didn't know what we were missing!!

The kids have been fishing before, but it's been a LONG time. I'm surprised they even remember! They were so patient...I never would've imagined that they could fish without complaining, but they did. Mostly.



Evan caught a fish before Ella. She had a meltdown.
When she finally did catch a fish...
...it flipped all over crazy just after this picture...and she had another meltdown.
Daddy and I got in BIG trouble, too, because we laughed. She threw this stomping crazy fit about the fish jumping and it was hilarious. To us. She could hardly breathe as she 'yelled' "IT IS NOT FUNNY!"
Our response: "Yes, it most certainly is. If only it were on video!"
We're mean like that.
We rented a boat one day and it was wonderful to get out on the water. We need to make some friends up there so we don't have to rent one each time...my debit card was SMOKIN' after that!
Look who caught the biggest fish...
...but did you notice that she is NOT holding the line this time!!

Oh how I would love to take my kids on a weekend trip. I think they would love being on a boat and I know I would love it. We will have to take a rain check on that.... glad you guys had fun.. Oh and laughing at the fit....so something me and Tim would do!

remembering visits with my dad. we always spent our summer visit on the boat fishing with him. i think it was an excuse to make us be quiet.

How FUN! I would much rather visit the woods and the lake than the beach.

I remember fishing with my daddy. I LOVED it as long as I didn't have to bait my own hook, touch the fish when I caught one OR eat it. I was content to just sit there with my pole visiting with dad or just have a comfortable silence waiting for my pole to more.

I miss my daddy!

That's a great string of pictures! Looks like you had a really nice time.

We've recently begun fishing and it is pretty funny to see the lack of patience bubbling just beneath the surface. :) My boys do pretty well, though.
