Gone Fishin'

Today we decided to venture out into the heat and take the kiddos fishing. There's a great park about a half hour from our house that has a fishing pond, so we decided to go there. It also has a Carousel, a small train,a petting zoo, a snake exhibit (yuck) and a small zoo. There are several playgrounds and mini golf, too. And best of it all it's super cheap. Each different ride or exhibit only costs around 5o cents up to 1.50, and the playgrounds and snake exhibit are free. You can't beat that!

When we first got there we saw this little guy hanging around with his mommy. What is it about baby ducks that just makes a girl melt? Well, really baby anything for that matter.

Oh, sweet little baby duck......I wanted to pet his sweet little feathers, but that little sucker was fast!

The we went on our fishing adventure. Daddy baited our hooks.
And then we waited.......

And waited..........
And waited some more.......

Finally, the wait was over! Sweet fishy Victory!


This little guy kept flitting around everywhere. This is the only picture I got of him. Every time I tried to get another one he'd take off.

Then we were joined by none other than...........

Mr. Squirrel! Or possibly Miss... I didn't get that close.

Little man and I also saw what I think was a rattlesnake. We didn't hang around to get pictures of him. Couple of turtles too, but I was afraid I'd drop my camera in the water. And then blogging would over! Because this man......

would probably NOT buy me another camera!

So, other than the stifling heat, a great time was had by all! Hopefully, they'll be more adventures to come!

  1. I know what you mean about the camera. I'm always teasing Wayne that he'd never buy me another camera...or laptop!! Oh the horror!
