here fishy, fishy!

daddio's family(my family too, i know) has an annual memorial weekend fishing trip & fish fry. this is the first time we have been able to participate in both. ben has the fishing gene for sure ; right away he caught the first fish & went on to catch 7 more! i know he made poppy proud!

gracie borrowed namaw's fishing hat for this adventure. it looked pretty good on her, especially with the boots. watch out fishies, here we come!

gracie pointing out the spot she thought would be best to fish in...

my little fisherman.
ben making his first cast with the rocket launcher fish rod.
it only lasted one or two casts, namaw is taking it back.

the first catch of the day by my son, mr. beano!!!

running back after making his second catch of the day!

daddio & ben reeling in a big one. you can't beat that look of excitement on ben's face. he was loving every minute of it.
a more serious moment between the two...
namaw having a good ole time..

gracie's favorite part was playing with the worms.
dirty little fingers.

she loved giving them hugs.

the cousins & their boys with all the fishies they caught.
i must say i didn't actually fish, gracie & i only lasted about an hour out there. the heat was really getting to me. so, we went back home & had some much needed rest. i really enjoyed my fishing trip!!
