Fishing

Over 4th of July weekend we took the girls on their first fishing trip. A good friend of Uncle's, Travis, is a big fisher and offered to take us. He provided all the necessary equipment and supplies.

So Sunday after church we all meet up at Cabella's. We had a little lunch, walked around and check out the giant store, and had a quick potty break.

We drove out to Highland Glen Park. There's a small man made lake or you could say a large man made pond. Either way the state stocks it with fish and there are little piers you can fish off of. I know my kids well enough to know how it would go. "Please mom, take us fishing, we want to go fishing, fishing is our favorite... 5 mintues later... Mom can we go home now." Which is basically how it went. Travis got Tira set up with the first fishing pole and even before he had the next one ready to go she was done and complaining.

We were able to keep the little ones busy with fishing, feeding the ducks, and snacks.

Uncle caught the first fish within 5 minutes of us arriving. Yai Yai caught the next one and I caught our final one.

We lasted about 4 hours until Lanna had to go to the bathroom. I took her to the porta-potties where she took one look and said YUCK and refused to go. Then I took her into the bushes and told her to squat. She screamed and cried and refused to even try LOL. Finally we packed up at went home. It was lots of fun but probably something that's only going to be a once in a while activity.
