Gone Fishing (Week 40/52)

We recently took a little trip to Roaring River State Park in Missouri for a fishing trip. We rented a cabin and spent hours by the river while Matt caught some fish. Colin had an amazing time throwing rocks and leaves into the river and helping daddy work his fishing pole. 

The light in this picture is awful, but it shows perfectly Colin's version of "fishing"--holding a stick like a fishing pole, then throwing it into the river.

And I'm happy to report Colin only fell into the river once :) These pictures don't show it very well because of the lighting...he is completely soaked up to his belly button. He was on the edge of the river using the net to scoop up leaves, and he stepped onto some leaves that he thought were on the shore, when he went straight into the water. It scared him quite a bit, but it was pretty hilarious.

We had a great time, and now any time we drive past a pond, lake, or river, Colin "talks" about how we went fishing.
