At the Fishnic
Through Parker's Cub Scouts, we experienced our first Fishnic (a combined fishing & picnic outing). Here is how each family member enjoyed the morning:
Once Macy had her babies settled, she had no problem getting comfortable with nature. In fact, Macy outlasted all the boys & fished the longest.
Be careful what you read to your children! Parker, like most boys, loves to read nonfiction. We checked out one book on worms & read it over and over LAST YEAR. As Parker watched each worm meet its demise, he started spouting information from the book and about all the wonderful services worms provide. I seized the moment to remind him about the circle of life and introduce the food chain. Parker wasn't impressed. At the end of the morning, he proclaimed himself a "a fake bait fisherman."
Tony spent the first hour and a half, baiting, casting, and untangling lines while only having 2 hours of sleep. What a great den leader and daddy!
I found my spot in the sun & my hot coffee just about perfect!
