A Day at the Lake

Yesterday was a wonderful day spent with family. It's the last big family get together while the weather is still warm. The kids always love hanging out together regardless of what they are doing. Besides lots of fabulous food prepared by all the girls in the family, Labor Day usually involves fishing at the lake.

Enjoy the end of summer!

Rachel caught three fish, three different times, and all three fish got away. Each time, we all got excited as she was reeling it in only to share in her disappointment as it jumped back in the lake. We finally realized the hook on her line was just too small for the size of these bass. Uncle Gary helped change the hook, so here she is trying once again.

In a matter of two minutes, she reeled in this nice catch.

And, no, I do not take the fish home and clean them and cook them and eat them.

Been there. Done that.

When my kids decide they want to eat fish, we'll try it again. Did I mention the last time we tried taking the catch home for dinner, poor Rachel cried when we started to cut off their heads.

For now, we'll just stick to kissing them goodbye (yes, it's a tradition) and throwing them back in the lake!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!
