Fishing Weekend






Well, it was cold and rainy most of the weekend for our fishing trip but the kids still had a great time. We got there Friday night at about 9:30 and the kids were pretty good (and loud) during the 3 1/2 hour drive there. Gavin and Kyra went out with Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Britton early Saturday morning to do some fishing and caught a few but not much. They came back and everyone had breakfast and then the rain started in. So, we convinced the kids to take an early nap (since they had been up until 11 the night before) and then mid-afternoon the rain stopped and the sun came out and we were back at the fishing. Gavin and Kyra seemed to have better luck than most of the adults that went out in the boat and they were just fishing off the dock. I don't do worms and fish so Grandma had a full time job (plus some) just trying to keep the lines baited and the fish off the hooks. As soon as she released one and they lowered their hooks back in the water they would have another one - it was so much fun to watch. Of course they were only Sunny's but that didn't matter in the least to the kids. Kyra was game for anything, including holding the worms and fish but Gavin took two days of "warming up" to the fish before he would even poke at one. Carley hated her life jacket and thought she hated the boat until Grandma just held onto her and MADE her ride the boat, then she loved it and jabbered the whole time they were out there. It was a relaxing weekend and fun to spend a couple of days with everyone - that doesn't happen much anymore as everyone goes their own directions.
