This past weekend we decided to go visit my parents...Yaya and Papa. It's been a few months since we've seen them and even a short get away is better than none.
Besides seeing the grandparents, the highlight of the kids' weekend was going fishing in the neighborhood pond. Every time we go visit they BEG to go fishing and this time we did!
On the advice of the man who built the neighborhood, he told us the best thing to fish with in this pond was "dough balls". Huh? So we learned the fine art rolling damp white bread into "dough balls" as our bait. We couldn't argue with the boss man??
Being the clean freak that he is, Lego-Man quickly abandoned that little project. And we had to remove the Princess off the dough-ball project because she was eating as many as she was making!
Let the fishing begin (FYI, this is a catch and release pond):
After much consternation and a broken line, Lego-Man finally got his first catch. Well, he actually had a very first one, but reeling it in involved an airborne sequence that resulted in a landfall at the water's edge and a quick escape back into the water! I wish I had it on video. It was priceless. As was his reaction!
Unfortunately, the Princess caught a few weeds, and almost took out 3 eyeballs in her quest for fish.
The "catch of the day" award goes to the hubby for snagging this little jewel:
The "quote of the day" award goes to Lego-Man, after his initial lack of success:
And the final award goes to yours truly for the "photo of the day" award:
I'm glad I didn't let that photo opportunity get away!
