Fishin' on a Sunday Afternoon

All of Tyler's ballgames were cancelled due to wet, saturated fields, so we had some nice family time together. I said we needed to find some "free fun". We narrowed it down to bicycling or fishing. I am still feeling the pain from yoga, so I opted for fishing. Sitting and reading a book in a lounge chair with camera in hand is just my style! Notice, no photos of me! Happy day!
I was reading and set it down to take this picture.
Tyler gave up swimming at the pool with friends to spend time with us, not that it was really an option, but I appreciated that he did not complain.
I just love those freckles!
It's hard to get a picture of Grant looking at me when he's focused on an activity.
There's nothing cuter than a 3 yr. old fishing, except maybe a 2 yr. old.
This heron was the only one catching anything, for a while.
Then after an hour or so, we got lucky!
The kids were catching a couple dozen Sunfish. Nothing big, but it's the catching that makes it worthwhile, not the size of the fish.
What parent allows a toddler to bait a hook? I'll admit, he is pretty good at it. I guess it's the third child thing...anything goes.
He can even take his own fish off the hook. He's a pro at this! Grant announced, "Mom, it's bweeding from it's mouff."
I'm glad he's still willing to give them a farewell kiss good-bye!

A diverse group you have. Sewing in one post fishing in the next. Love it! Where did you do yoga? Yoga is my favorite.

I'd invite you to go with me, but I don't think you're so close anymore. Bummer! I've tried Basic and Power Yoga at the Y in Fallbrook.

I'm considering a cooking post next, but of course, I don't do that either! :)

I love the picture of Grant kissing the fish good bye! He is so cute! Oh and it is so the third child thing. My third child was way too independent and still is...

I love that Grant kisses fish. So gross, yet so cute!

Looks like you guys had a blast out there! Glad that the brood had fun despite the biting fish size.

Adorable pictures! I don't know about fish kissing... but it sure was cute!

Thanks for visiting my blog via Mindee. Mindee and I go back to college days together (UOP) and have reconnected thanks to the internet! It's been so fun!!

Really great fishing pictures, Amy. That'll make a nice 2 page scrapbook layout!
