Here Fishy Fishy

MEMORIAL WEEKEND FAMILY FISHING TRIP TO SCOFIELD:
The boys were out around 8 am in the thirty something weather. We girls chose to avoid the freezing tent camping and stay at the Nebekers for a sleepover Friday night.

After a picnic lunch the girls decided to brave the waters and Caroline's Barbie pole did it again!


John was content that the boat ran well, he rigged the mp3 player to blast eighties soft rock all day, and his family was having fun together.

Desiree had just finished about 1/4 bag of cheetos and several packages of princess fruit snacks. And now she was holding the pole. So many reasons to smile.

...And the grand finale...

I tell you my SHOULDER WAS SORE reeling this baby in. "Give it up for the mom!" We ate him that evening. All the kids tried a piece with lots of lemon pepper and John Nebekers special grilling touch.

Of course the Mom catches the biggest fish! The Mom is the best at everything!

We use to feed the fish John caught to the cats. The trip look fun, only I can't believe the snow.
Is it spring, yet?

I am flabbergasted with your fishing abilities. You are going to have to teach us. Can we borrow the Barbie pole?

Looks like you guys had a great time together! I'm impressed your kids trying the fish. I personally can catch fish but I refuse to eat them.

What a COLD family trip! I'm impressed with the fishing. Way to go Julia! I enjoy fishing, but not the eating it part!
