Our kids have been bugging us to get the canoe in the pond. When we moved in the algae was out of control and extremely gross. We have been working hard to clear it up and the algae situation is so much better than it was. Since we can see bottom in some area's of the pond we decided to take the USS Algae a float.
For some reason Sarah and I were sent out first. It reminds me of the Life cereal commercial, "Let Mikey try it." Off we go....
Sarah is looking at all the Algae under the water, we are both thinking please don't let us tip over! I think I must have said, "Sit still" at least 100 times!!
We survived which meant the rest of the family would survive their ride on the USS Algae!
If you look closely at Maddie...her exact words were,
" I am holding on for dear life."
She did have to endure being in the boat with
two boys, who do like to tease about tipping the boat.
What is it about little boys and worms?
Tonight worms and maggots are the bait of choice.
If you notice the girls decided to sit this one out!
They caught some sunnies and two awesome catfish!
All (fish) were set free back into the pond!
Awards were given out for the following:
First catch of the day:
The smallest catch of the day:
The largest catch of the day:
The rod needed to be handed over to an adult...
see how it is bending?
The boys are patiently waiting to see who will win,
the fish or the rod?
We are happy to say the rod won
and a big catty was brought to shore!
After some Ooo's and Aaaa's the catty
was set free!
Next on the agenda...Smore's!
Linking to Mosaic Monday's!!
