wish a wish to catch a fish

P1040613Our boys have been wanting to catch a fish this summer and despite our one lame attempt their dad's best efforts, they have not experienced reeling in a fighter.

Thank God for friends.  Our friend David has his dad's fishing boat for the summer and offered to use one of his few days off of his orthopedic residency to take Kenyon and the older boys for a day of fishing.

David picked up my three sleepy men at 4:30 in the morning and they spent the day on a beautiful reservoir about an hour away.

They had a great day and caught a bunch of HUGE fish.  That night we had their entire family come up for a fish feast and lots of fun.

Thank goodness that David's wife Darcy had a good recipe because I stink at cooking fish.

Here's an early morning catch:

The boys had a little too much fun driving the boat, if you ask me.  In fact, The Hunter looked at my beloved while driving and said, "Dad, this is the life!"

It sure is buddy, you have no idea.



When they got back to our house, our little stream came in handy because they just took all the fish down and cleaned them in the freezing cold water.

So, so great.

The first thing the boys said was "Hey! Who are those boys with uncle Dave?" followed by "Can we come?!" :)

Love the pictures friend. So glad the boys had fun. You all are a special family.
