Gone Fishin’

In late August/early September Grandpa Bill came to visit us for a few days.  Since Grandpa Bill is an outdoorsy kind of guy I thought it’d be fun for him to teach Ben how to fish.  After selecting the necessities of a tackle box, fishing poles, and live bait (worms!!), the fishermen were ready to cast their lines.  Ben was so excited about this fishing trip!  As we made our way to the dock that morning we talked all about how we’d catch the fish and then cook them for dinner (and in case you’re wondering…we didn’t really cook them for dinner, they were all pretty small so we threw them back in)! 

As you can see in the video and from the look on his face in this picture, when the fish started flopping Ben was DONE!  For the rest of the time Ben was content to eat snacks, play with the tackle box and dig dirt in the cup of worms while watching Grandpa Bill catch all the fish!

After a hard day’s work of fishing we headed down to the neighborhood playground to kick up our heels and go swinging!  Thanks for coming to visit us, Grandpa Bill!

    We need to catch up sometime on the phone. I miss you! We need to plan a phone date and block off a good two hours or so. When is good for you?
