Big Fish

The last stop of last week's staycation was Menomonee Park so we could go fishing; the first time this season. We renewed the fishing license and got a new fishing pole for Carter at Farm & Fleet. I'm SO glad he decided to get the Batman fishing pole instead of the Disney Princesses pole he said he wanted last year. We also picked up the obligatory freakin' huge bag of Farm & Fleet candy - gummy worms this time around.

As we went in the afternoon, we were pretty sure we wouldn't catch any fish. We were wrong; we caught two huge fish...

It must have been memorable for the boys because for a few days afterwards, they were asking me to 'catch a Carterfish' or a 'Jordanfish'. They even called Cyn a 'Honeyfish'. Those boys consumed way more gummy fish than anyone should eat in a year. Good times, good times.


  1. so funny about the fishing pole - princess vs batman. sounds fun - i know my kids want to go fishing, but i'm not really sure why.

  2. We've never fished with our kids, but seeing as your the second person to post about fishing in the past week, I think we might try it. I'll have to wait until Mike gets back from SLC however. I'm not even going to attempt it alone.

  3. your blog is so cute I need to do something with mine. We have been wanting to go fishing with our kids, but feel that it will not work with Gavin yet, he will end up wanting to go swimming and scare all the fish.
