"You can take the boy out of Alaska, but you can't take Alaska out of the boy"
I learned this a year and a half ago when Taber was building an igloo in our backyard. Recently the Alaska boy has come out in his renewed passion for fishing. One day he just called me out of the blue and said he was at Dick's picking up fishing poles and worms for him and the kids. Since then, every chance he gets, he's gone fishin'!
He takes the kids to Mill's pond near Mine Falls about 10 minutes from our house.
Aw, there's that handsome face I love... :)
Cam and I have dropped in for a bit on the fishing excursions but usually he needs a nap so we have to leave early.
There are lots of fun creatures at the pond. Baby turtle!!
Look at that little guy...so cute!
Teya is pretty pro from what Taber tells me. She usually catches 7 or 8.
She likes kissing them too for some reason...(I did not teach her that!)
Brinley usually likes to catch one or two
She needs a little more help than Teya, but she has a good time and especially loves playing with all the rocks and leaves and bugs and things down at the pond.
Teya is also fearless when it comes to handling the slimy dudes. She helps Daddy clean them and season them for the grill like it's nothing.
This picture makes me laugh, grilled fish on Ariel the Little Mermaid plates. This is exactly the kind of horror Sebastian warned her about! (Lol ; )
Not sure how many kids out there would eat this but my lil' outdoorsy ladies are all about it. They chowed these suckers faster than potato chips and popcorn. Guess that's how you roll when your Daddy's an Alaska boy ; )
