all weekend we got to look at this: there was plenty of relaxing on keith's family farm, visiting with family, a little bit of fishing and even swimming because this year the sun shone brightly...not bad for memorial day weekend in wisconsin, where you never know what you're going to get in the weather department. i even got to chow down on some of uncle mac's famous bbq ribs, which were totally worth the five hour car ride getting up to the farm. sorry, there are no photos. we took care of all the evidence.
the kids turned into some serious fisherpeople over the weekend, perfecting their casting and excercising great patience.
luckily s.a.a.j. (special agent auntie jay) was on hand to bait the worms on their hooks.
hey, a.j., i totally owe you one!!!
our fishing excursion was successful...
after the mr. caught his large mouth bass, the kiddos deliberated whether it was humane to eat the fish or not. it was hilarious to hear them debate the issue, though finally, hunger won out. (the fish was delish by the way...nothing like fresh caught fish in a fresh, clean lake).
it's a law that whenever we go somewhere, we always forget something...this time it was the bucket for the fish. so fordy was in charge of babysitting the fish...
er, walking the fish. or something like that.
who incidently is a kid magnet...not that you can tell or anything.
