You Get A Line, I'll Get A Pole

Demolition D headed off to Athens this weekend with his step mom and her mother for the Georgia-Alabama football game. He actually likes Auburn, but he had a great time anyway – especially since Georgia lost! We think he needs to go to the Auburn/Georgia game and see if his presence might have the same luck!

So after a busy morning, Saturday, at work and finishing a few household chores, we took . . . formally known as Stitch (a nickname given at Scouts, that I really do not like! -I will come up with a new one) out to my SIL/BIL's farm to do a little fishing.


I was a gorgeous afternoon!







Will caught the first fish – a small brim


Followed by Dude (trying that name on, maybe Bud will be better) catching the first bass . . . .



The release



And then this happened . . . .







Will caught another bass caught! (it was jumping out of the water as they reeled it in!)




And then another was caught (I lost track of who) . . .






Say Ahhhhhhhh . . . .




Pretty gnarly




We threw them back in ~ since we went more the enjoyment of being outside on such a lovely day. . .






A chance to enjoy time with each other and enjoy crickets chirping and the dragonflies buzzing



The birds singing and purple martins fishing too!

Hard, to see, but the black spot are the birds getting bugs off the water




And then the sunset . . .






the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea . . .

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

Psalms 8:8-9

Beautiful pictures!!!

I think that daddy's and children fishing is one of the most precious times spent together.

We're not fishers. {I can't stand any sort of fish or seafood. Yuck.} But we have done catch and release-that's pretty cool.

It looks like you had an awesome time together!
