Go Fish

Last Saturday morning we decided to go fishing. Jon's boss lives in a neighborhood with stocked ponds, and told him we were welcome to bring the kids out. We thought it would be more fun if we acutally had a good chance of catching something! The big rain was still on the way, but it sprinkled on-and-off for most of the morning.

We headed down to Union Grove, AL, and got to work...

We had to walk down this huge hill to get to the dock. It was not rustic, but it was nice to have room for the kids to run around in a contained area.

Then the boys had to bait the hooks.

At age 2 and 3, I think the most fun thing about fishing is the worms!

Then it was time to fish. Jordan broke this rod, but still had so much fun playing with it...

Guess who caught the only fish???? ME!!!! :) SO fun! I let the boys take it off the hook, though! Both kids touched it--pretty funny.

When it was time to clean up, I guess the kids figured it out..."If we're putting everything we used in the tackle box, then I guess the worms we didn't use should go in there too!!!" Good thing I saw them in there...Jon would've had a nice surprise next time he opened it!
Back up this crazy hill...

On Jon's boss' golf cart to ride back to the house where our van was parked. This was a fun trip...but it definitely wasn't "roughin' it"!!! :)
