Let's Go Fishing!

About 1 year ago, Travis and Emma went fishing at Springdale Lake. I stayed home with Hannah. About 30 minutes after they left, it started pouring down rain. Travis pulled up about 15 minutes after the rain started. He got Emma out and she was boo hooing! I asked her what was wrong and she told me "The rain ruined my dress!" (she had on a little sun dress). I tried not to laugh and told her it would be ok. Ever since then, she has adamantly refused to go fishing with Travis.

Emma had a tummy ache earlier today and a low fever, so we didn't spend much time outside. After nap, she woke up feeling better. So, after dinner, we decided to take the girls out to Springdale Lake for a wagon ride to try to get them out of the house for a little bit...maybe the sunshine would help Emma feel LOTS better. It has a walking trail and Travis thought he could get Emma to fish. So, off we went. Travis showed Emma how to bait a hook, how to cast and finally....HOW TO REEL IN A BIG ONE!

On the second cast, Emma caught a fish! She was so excited! She even held the fish and threw it back herself! We were so proud of her! We only fished a little bit longer and no bites. But, she is asking to go back! Hannah had fun too. I took her for a ride in the wagon, we blew bubbles and we threw rocks in the Lake. It was a nice ending to a great weekend...and Emma is on cloud 9!
