Gone Fishin'


Lawman wanted to go fishing. He suggested that B2 and I come along, not because we would want to fish but just because we would be together.






B2 and I decided to go and we brought our paraphenalia too. We forgot the bug spray.


When we arrived at our destination, B2 was distracted. That happens.



Yes, I realize that trampolines are not readily available at most fishing spots. However, this isn't your ordinary fishing spot (it's behind our friend's house).




Here's Lawman getting down to business. He discovered he needed to be on the other side of the pond. Something about the direction of the wind. I'm not a fisherman so I don't understand all the technicalities. So he moved.






And then settled in.



And when he didn't have any luck here, he tried another method.




I tried to settle in too but got distracted by the shadows.


Finally, we all found our spot.







Only to realize that someone needed our help getting out of the pond.



He'd had enough. What? He was ready to head home. I always thought fishing was about patience. Hmmm...

I don't know too much about fishing and the technicalities either. Going as a family is good and bringing a book along good too....

My husband and son are into legos and computer games... I'm just there so we can all be together .

It's nice to get invited, and even nicer when you don't have to stay long!
