Fishing with Daddy and Papa


Papa got Emmy a Barbie fishing pole a little while ago. We finally got around to going fishing! Emmy got to use her pretty fishing pole, and she had so much fun! That is until she dropped her pole into the lake. We watched as it sunk to the bottom, tears filling Emmy's eyes. She was so sad! Luckily, Ella's Princess fishing pole was in the boat, so Emmy got to resume her fishing, which involved dangling the fishing line in the water :)

Here are the highlights:

Papa helping Emmy become a pro fisher-woman!

Papa has taught all the grandkids to kiss the fish before throwing it back in the water. Emmy did it, but the camera wasn't fast enough to take the pic so I missed it!

Daddy keeping up the tradition of kissing the fish :)

Daddy and Papa caught lots of fish, and Emmy was such a great helper!

HOw fun! We love to go fishing as a family, it is the boys favorite thing ever! I don't think I want to kiss a fish though, YUCK! But I am sure the boys would love it!

I love that he teaches them to kiss the fish, at least she did it and wasn't afraid of it. And how sad to see her pole sink to the bottom.
