This weekend, we took the boys out to the lake to go fishing, or shishing, as Travis says! I have to say, we were quite successful considering our bait...week old dead worms from a previous fishing trip Christian took. The first half an hour the boys were casting their lines out as far as they could and didn't catch anything...only to discover that the best fishing was right out in front of them at the end of a rock. They would drop their lines just past the edge of the rock and immediately pull out a fish! Carson was in heaven!! Carson caught atleast 6 fish and Christain caught 3 or 4. It was so fun to watch Carson as watched his bobber closely (to see if it went under the water) and then reel in his catch! Travis was not so excited about the fish, which really surprised me, but had no problem occupying his time by throwing rocks in the water! After the boys started loosing interest in the fishing, we decided it was time to eat. We packed a picnic for dinner and enjoyed it at a near campsite. It was a beautiful, warm day and even cooled off a little while we were out there, making it even more enjoyable!!
This picture cracks me up! I was ahead of the boys and when I looked back while I was waiting for them, this is what I saw...silly, silly boy!!
As we were leaving the lake, a mommy turkey and about 10 babies crossed the road right in front of us!
