I don't know what started the obsession but Liza and Jason were hooked on the idea of going fishing... for real. They play fishing at home by tying strings around all their stuffed animals. Then they build boats (laundry baskets or random boxes) and sit in the middle of a room holding their strings with their "fish" on them. But they decided it was time to do the real thing and Papa Mike was the one to take them.
We went to a park with a small pond. Liza started fishing with Papa and Jason went with Uncle Matt. As soon as my dad put bait on the hook and cast the line something was biting. Oh the excitement! Liza was really into it. Jason was a little more reserved. But they both loved it! And they caught lots of fish during their hour of fishing!
Jason caught one!
My brother Dave and his kids met up with us.
We had a really great time fishing and my dad was the perfect person for Liza and Jason's first fishing experience! It couldn't have gone better!
