Gone Fishin'

Josh has been dying to take Brody fishing, so this evening we went to a nearby lake and let Josh teach Brody how to fish! We had a lot of fun. It was hot as blazes, but we had a great time just hanging out together and relaxing.

Sadly, I forgot our live bait when we left the house. I have no idea how I missed the worms in my refrigerator, but thankfully, we had a ton of fake bait. I guess the correct term would be artificial bait. But really, the fish liked my gum best. I spit a wad in the lake so I could drink my diet coke (because gum and diet coke do not mix) and as soon as that piece of gum hit the water, the little fish went crazy!

I realized tonight that this is what my life will be like. Fishing, dirt, worms, woods, sweat. You know...life with boys! I wouldn't have it any other way. I am SO blessed! Brody was watching Josh bait the hook.

He looks really disgusted by the whole process!The boys fishing! The view of the lake
