Gone Fishin’


The kids really wanted to go fishing this summer. Every time I thought of taking them I kept envisioning a hot day on the lake with no fish and cranky and bored kids. I wanted them to have a positive experience so they learn to enjoy fishing.

Since fishing at the local Bass Pro Shop is frowned upon, we settled for the next best thing…A trout pond. The entrance fee is cheap and the fish are expensive but the kids loved it!

I bought the kids their own pole and we headed to the mountains the next morning. Wendi and I didn’t fish, we helped the little ones cast and reel in the fish. Blake was the big winner with 4 trout. Eric liked catching the fish and watching them flop around. Isabel didn’t like the flopping. She was doing pretty good until one fish had a hook through the eye and blood running down its body, that part grossed her out!

After fishing we had a picnic in the mountains before heading home. Enjoy the pictures
