Cate and Joel have been asking Grandpa Roy to take them fishing for a few months and today they finally got their chance. The three of them went to the lake for awhile to try their hand. The kids had to bait their own hooks, hold their poles and reel in the line. They had some help casting, but for the most part did everything else by themselves.

The three fishermen.
Joel after the first fifteen minutes.
Cate caught two catfish and helped grandpa clean and fillet them.
And for the enjoyment of those who know me well....I fried them for her for supper, despite a great dislike of fish, being in my first trimester of pregnancy and the permanent smell of fried fish. I guess I must kind of like her.

Way to go, Cate! So did she like the taste of fish? I love it that they had to bait their own hooks and everything. The photo of Joel is hilarious...

That fish looks pretty yummy! I really need to take my kids fishing though I think they might look like Joel after a bit.

Hi, I was looking to redesign my header on my blog and came across yours. I love the spilled milk, that was exactly what I was looking for, but I will keep looking since you are already using it. But I like your blog as well. I am in MN, so we are neighbors! I have a 5, 3, 2 year olds! It's an adventure huh? :)
