Hook, Line, and Sinker

Fishing.  Do you remember your first time?  Jude's first fishing experience left us unsuccessful in the "catching department".  We tried a second time last week for my brother-in-law's birthday celebration.  I have to say my heart was pretty much bursting with joy watching Jude and my nephew, Blayze pull their first fish out of the pond with their poles.  They were laughing, squealing, and jumping with delight all evening.   These little guys have changed our family's world.  I cannot explain how precious it is to see how much the boys love being with Grandpa and Grammy, and of course, the reverse is true too.  After catching a lot of fish, Dad made hotdogs over the bonfire (along with two "helpers").  Then, we ate and just enjoyed being out in the crisp, cool fall air surrounded by those we love.

“Most of the world is covered by water. A fisherman’s job is simple: Pick out the best parts.” –Charles Waterman
