Sometimes it's just nice to unplug, reconnect, and be together. And there is nothing like all sharing a tent to bring on the togetherness! Here are a few of the highlights:
|Miles reeling in his very first fish!|
|He was just a wee bit proud!|
|Sadie with her catch. She even baited her own hook. Something about a girly girl putting a worm on a hook just enlarges my heart about three sizes.|
|Fighting a fish is hard work!|
|Go Noah Go! Fortunately, the fish were biting at warp speed!|
|I'm fairly certain he could not get any cuter. He LOVED being at the pond. Surprisingly, he turned out to be a very patient fisherman!|
Then night started to fall on the farm...
|There were glow sticks and lots of running around in the dark- which, I swear, is more fun than Disney Land for my kids.|
|Hello world! What kind of trouble can we get in today????|
Not as good as the homemade ones my Granny always made after camping, but these donuts were the best this busy mama could pull off. I didn't hear any complaining!
Then it was back to the pond for a little fishing in our PJ's. You haven't lived until you've fished in your footed pajamas.
I apparently get very giddy and pose quite awkwardly when I catch a fish. I think that the fish and I have the same expression.
I'm adding camping and fishing to the activities that go in my arsenal for when I get stuck in mean mom mode. It was AWESOME! It was such a great way to reconnect and truly listen and pay attention to the kids. I'm hoping that this is the beginning of a great camping season for our family!
