We took the boat out over the weekend to attempt some fishing. We've had the boat all summer, but spent more of our time touring around the area, and letting me get more comfortable driving, etc. Finally decided to bite the bullet and give it a shot!
Em wanted to bring a friend because she wasn't overly interested in the fishing portion of things, so wanted someone to hang out with. I got a kick out of the two of them, shoulder to shoulder, giggling away!
attempts at an artistic shot, using a cell phone camera... ha!
Someday when I'm a millionaire, go ahead and just plop me down into something like this along the water...
Connor was dying to help me drive, so while we were trolling along, I sat him in my lap and let him have at it. He's squinting for the picture, but was full of giggles and smiles otherwise!
Jared was snuggling up to Dan (who, in case you don't remember, is opting NOT to be photographed on my blog any longer)
HEY! What happened to our flasher and squid-thingy?? Must have been a HUGE fish that totally snapped the line in the fight to reel it into the boat! That's our story, and we're stickin' to it! (Couldn't possibly have been that we got a little shallow and snagged the bottom... We'll never know for sure!)
But look, we caught something! Hahahahaha! We all felt it was quite exciting to catch SOMETHING, even if we couldn't keep it. *grin*
And I think I'll work harder at finding a "pee bucket" to have on board for our longer outings, because I REALLY did not enjoy hanging bare-bummed over the edge of the boat to pee!
