I ate a FISH!!! (and liked it)

Last week we went to Josie's house for 2 fun filled days of fishing. We ended up catching a lot of sun fish, lots of large-mouth bass, and one catfish.

On day one we fished out of the little pond. It's pretty low right now. The kids thought it was great and played in the mud the whole time. Can you think of any childhood past-time that's more fun than that?

How hot is this man!!!?

Katie was great and slept the entire time.

(can life get better than this?)

Josie caught the first bass.

I caught the second.

Josie caught another one & then Madi caught the fourth one of the day.

We saved the bass & threw the rest back. When Roy got home he got the pleasure of cleaning and gutting the fish with Carson. The then breaded and fried them. They were quite tastey.

On day two, we went to the big pond. Carson had the first catch &, lucky him, it was a catfish.

This day wan't quite as fun, but we still had a good time. The reason it wasn't as fun as day one: we were already tired, the fish weren't biting as well, it was very hot, and there were ticks. (the big pond is in a very wooded area)

All in all we had a great time. We can't wait to go again!
