Fishing Derby

Last Saturday we participated in a fishing derby, and had SO much fun. It was an event put on by the St Joseph Kaffee Haus group the kids belong to through our church. The St Joseph group is for people in our community that have special needs... We meet once a month for dinner and social time. We've been going for years... almost since we moved here... and the kids love the community there.

So... Saturday was the first annual fishing derby. It was held at a lake on a ranch owned by one of the St Joe's group. It was an absolutely beautiful setting and a lovely day... not too hot, but still warm enough to feel like summertime.





We spent most of the day there... the kids just fished a little (like me, they aren't the most patient of fishermen!) and we also walked around the lake, visited with friends, and pedaled paddle boats around the lake.

Sorry, no paddle boat pictures, I was too busy paddling various kids around the lake, while trying to steer and keep my burning legs moving at the same time to take any... )

But here is M casting...






`

What an amazing way to spend a Saturday...

`

I even got a few pictures of Joe...

`

No, he's not clapping... he's cleaning sand off his hands.

Alas, we didn't catch anything, although a bunch of other people did. (I think you actually have to sit and fish for awhile to catch anything...)

`

My beautiful baby girl...





I hope they do it again next year (and the year after that, and the year after that, and the....)
