Last Saturday our local MP (Member of Parliament) hosted a kids fishing day. It sounded like lots of fun but given my dislike of touching worms and fish, I figured Hannah’s first fishing adventure would have to wait until we go to the cottage this summer and Grandpa takes her fishing.
That all changed when one of my coworkers invited Hannah and I to go with he and his family. Yay! After gymnastics on Saturday we loaded up Hannah’s very official and professional…purple dolphin fishing rod and headed to the ‘ole fishing hole with Mr. Cory and his kiddos D & B.
We arrived at the event and quickly found that it was a popular choice for many. What fun to see so many families spending time together on this Mother’s Day weekend.
I haven’t fished in years so sadly between my lost skills and the fact that there was only about 3’ between each person it meant I had to rely on Cory to cast out for us. Heh…I’ll have to work on that this summer. While mommy took care of our rod Hannah go to work….snacking!
The kids did really well and within 30 mins all 3 of them had caught a fish! D was first
followed by B
and finally Hannah.
unexpected swim in my head.
Checking out the fish splashing around the bucket. Hannah kept her distance but kept going back to watch the fish swimming around.
We had a great time at the kid’s fishing day and I know we’ll go again. They even cleaned the fish for us which was a bonus. Since Hannah and I are going out for supper with my Mom tonight we donated our little fishie to D & B’s Mother’s Day dinner for their Mom today. I just received this pic from Cory a few minutes ago. Mmmm….looks like they’re having a delicious dinner!
Another ‘first’ for Hannah and Mommy and what fun we had!
This mommy might even get over her dislike of touching worms and fish so that we can go fishing together again!!
Update: I took this little video the day after our fishing adventure. It was cute to hear Hannah talk about it a day later. I’d just woken her up to go for Mother’s Day dinner so she’s a bit subdued….but still oh so cute!
