First Time Fishing

We had a fishing adventure today! This morning at our city park, they had an event where kids could come fish in the lake for free. They provided the worms, we brought the pole. They even had prizes for the biggest and smallest fish, but we didn't take any of our catches to be measured. We may have had some good competition for the latter category, though... :) I'd say we caught 5-10 small bluegill in the 30 minutes we were there. We saw a little 6-year-old girl that caught a huge catfish though! We couldn't believe it!This is the first time Elias had been fishing, so it was FUN! He laughed and laughed at Daddy casting that hook out there and then reeling in a fish! He was scared to touch the pole, which is strange to me, especially considering he thought nothing of touching the fish!After seeing Daddy do it several times, though, he got over his fear of the pole and helped him reel in a fish. Elias' first fish... What a whopper!Elias actually tried to grab that one out of Daddy's hand. Silly boy!So our first fishing adventure was definitely a success, and we can't wait to try it again when we visit Nana & Granddad's house at the lake next month!

That's so funny about being afraid of the pole and not the fish! And you look awesome, by the way!

Hiya! I thought about taking my boy fishing at the park too, but John had to work. I wasn't sure how complicated a two-year-old's first fishing experience would be, but I really wanted to know what kind of fish are in that pond! I'm glad I came across your blog, so now I know! :)
I'm loving the Pampered Chef clips! Thanks again!
