I took Sam and Ruthie to Texarkana this weekend for a much overdue trip. Jack and Trent stayed home for work and school. Sam got a fishing rod for his birthday and wanted to take it along to see if his Papa would take him fishing. I grew up fishing with my family on a lake behind my house so I knew this would be the perfect activity for my dad and Sam.
It all started with a lesson in how to bait your hook.
And then he started
That took some practice
But eventually he mastered it
The first time a fish ate his worm, he was so excited because he thought that meant he caught something.
Then we waited
And waited some more but he never actually caught a real fish.
He still had a blast though and wait until I tell you about his next fishing trip the next day.
Oh and don't feel sorry for Ruthie. She spent most of her time feeding the ducks
