All smiles!

Just rolled back into town.  Really, at this point it's just to do laundry and grab some mail.  No point in unpacking as we're gonna be headed to LR to visit family for the 4th.  But, I wanted to share a cool story...cool to me anyway.  As I've mentioned many times, my girls have 0 interest in fishing.  But I always include them in my outdoor activities. This week, instead of just burying the left over fish remains, I set up a few crab traps for entertainment purposes only...everything was released.  My oldest really got into it.  At one point, she was ready for a grip and grin!!
Although, she quickly changed her mind when she got a good look at the business end of a big blue crab...maybe next year.  I'm very excited that they love the water and all it has to offer.  At the end of the day they were running the traps w/o any help.  Pretty awesome!!

Get Some!

    1. You could see the excitement in their eyes as they walked out and the anticipation of what they might find. They had a great time!

  4. That's awesome! I am really on the side of your oldest though. The business end of a crab scares me as well. When I an extremely young lad, I discovered what those parts of a crayfish feel like - I can only imagine the amplification of a crab.

    1. Haha, yes, she's very bright. Probably didn't help that, when I went to check the line the 1st time I forgot my shoes. The sight of me running from the water, screaming like a little girl, after getting pinched on the foot (drew blood) didn't help my cause! Those dudes are ready to throw down when they're munching on fish heads.
