FATHER'S DAY & ANOTHER FISHING EXCURSION

We have decided to try to give the grandkids some experiences this summer that they might not have with their parents. A week or so ago, Bob took Wyatt fishing for the first time at a local pond and to the river. Another trip was in order as Caitlin didn't get to go the first time. So they headed to a reservoir close by. The best part about going on an excursion with Papa is to ride in his 1971 Suburban on bumpy roads - roll down those windows and let your hair fly - no air-conditioned vehicle here!



"I'll enjoy the view, while you untangle the line, Papa!"


Patience is a virtue.


"I'm not very patient - I would rather play in the mud."




"EUWWWWW" - "STINKY" - the dreaded outhouse experience!!


Hope you are all enjoying your summer experiences.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL OF THE PATIENT FATHERS AND GRANDFATHERS OUT THERE!!

What a precious post today, Sally girl. I loved it because I can relate to it so well.
Our grands LOVE going fishing, too. I spend all my time baiting their hooks, trying to take the fish off and getting the line out of the tree branches...great memories, tho and we do have such a good time.
HAPPY FATHERS DAY....

There's nothing more fun than taking kids fishing! What a great way to develop a lifelong relationship with nature. Yours look very happy! This is what summer vacation should be all about!

How cute Sally! Those little grans are just precious! What a wonderful time for them to make such memories with their Papa! Now, you didn't tell us if they caught anything!

My mother always tried to teach me to match my plaids when sewing and to put the main focal piece of the fabric on the fronts of whatever. I try! Thank you so much for noticing!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

They are so cute! I remember going fishing with my daddy. I knew he wanted it to be a great experience, but I wouldn't put a worm on the line or take a fish off the hook, so he had to do it all! He was patient about it though. You brought back some great memories for me. laurie
