One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Yesterday we went out to the Children’s Lake (the same place I took pictures of the kids a few weeks ago) for the Boiling Springs fishing derby.

This was the first time Trenton and Charlotte had been fishing, and they were rearing to go!

Charlotte nabbed a trout right from the get-go, but it got away with half of her worm.

But she and Trenton kept right on trying.

Trenton and Charlotte had a few more bites, but still weren’t reeling anything in.  And Jarrod and I aren’t big fishers, so we weren’t much help.

Luckily the people next to us, who had already reached the trout limit, took pity on our kids and helped them out.

Jarrod obviously didn’t want Trenton going in the water!

We didn’t come home with any trophies, but Trenton came home with two trout, and Charlotte came home with one.

Too bad there wasn’t a trophy for cutest baby.  I bet we could have won that one!

*And for those of you wondering – our lunch date yesterday and the picnic today went great.  So great in fact, that I was too busy enjoying myself to snap any pictures!

Those are some cute pictures! We aren't fishermen either, but that's definitely a childhood right of passage. How fun!
