(Josie's House. Isn't it pretty. I know, everyone wishes they had one. We do.)

Carson was all about "fish" on our trip to Oklahoma. He wanted to make sure he was able to take Madi out to eat fish and he want to make sure he got to take her fishing. So, there was a "guys afternoon out." All the boys and Madi went to a hole-in-the-wall fish and steak shack. All the girls went to Panera Bread Co. Yum! Yum!

Then while at Josie's, we spent one whole day fishing in her pond. It turned out to be a blast! And those of us that stuck it out the whole day got toasted, even though it was cloudy.

At first we weren't catching anything, until Carson ditched the store bought fake bait and caught a grasshopper. Instant success! He had the first catch of the day. What a rush of excitement.

Carson later caught a large mouth bass.

We now knew what the fish would eat. So we set down our poles and went grasshopper hunting. The funniest part was that Carson took off his shirt and used it to try to catch grasshoppers. It worked twice.

Once we had our bait, I immediatly caught my first fish! I was so excited! I've been fishing one other time that I can think of and I only caught one fish. In this one day, I caught 6 fish! It was so fun!

We even convinced my dad to come out to the pond for a little bit and he caught one as well.

Madi ended up catching quite a few fish, but she didn't want to get to close to them. I don't blame her, I didn't want to either.

It was a pretty fun day at Josie's we ended it with a bang... literally. Carson lit off a bunch of fireworks.
