With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: when you take a boy fishing...

Friday, August 2, 2013

when you take a boy fishing...

he concentrates on everything his PopPop says to catch his first fish
 then littlest sister picks up a pole, casts the line and in an instant, gleefully catches her first fish
 before you know it, another sister takes a turn and catches her first fish
 then somehow, a friendly competition begins as his mom and dad try to out-fish each other
{but mom has the advantage of fishing this same lake a gazillion times when her dad brought her as a kid} 
 someone (Aunt Abbey) determines to get that BIG one everyone sees swimming near the water edge
(but settles for a small sunnie)
there are lots of laughs over yucky worms and  hearing dad moan as he untangles lines
and messy moments pulling the hook out of the fish before tossing him back
(not to mention the expression of someone when a flipping fish splatters, splashes and slaps about their face)
when you take a boy fishing
everyone has a good time

What a blessed family that is to have parents and grand parents that take time to just be with the children and to have fun with them. What memories they will take with them throughout their lives.

Looks like everyone's having a blast. "Fishy, fishy in the brook, Papa catch him with his hook, Mama fry him in a pan, Baby eats him like a man."

I'd forgotten about how much fun fishing was until our little grandsons were here in June. It's an activity that fascinated our children too!

Just a little something from Judy said...

It is fun to see all the different expressions on the faces of everyone. I never went fishing, but it sure does look like a good time.
