The first fishing trip...

There is a first for everything...this is a common saying. This is even true for fishing. Fishing is pretty big with William's family. He grew up fishing and live near a lake where fishing is a common thing to do. William's parents even went fishing regularly until about 5 years ago.

So during our trip to Cabela's, when she insisted she wanted a fishing pole...I told her to talk to Grandma and Pawpaw! :-)

Rebekah in her fishing hat and fishing shoes...
William's mom (Linda) took her shopping for the shoes.
I foresee more shopping trips...they had a lot of fun with that.

Gettin' the pole...

Rebekah's first cast...
William showed her how at the house...I guess she forgot or something. LOL
Or maybe...putting the pole in the water seemed just as good?

Where ARE those fish...???

At home, Rebekah will "save" worms on the driveway by returning them to the dirt.
So I wondered how she would react to putting them on hooks...surprisingly it didn't bother her.

Her FIRST catch...courtesy of Uncle Thomas.
Yes...there IS a fish on there...look closely.

Peter had a good time as well...he ran around
and everyone took turns chasing him. :-)

Getting ready to catch another fish...
The clan from across the pond.

Uncle Thomas and Rebekah fishing!

Grandma and Rebekah fishing!

Second catch!
Uncle Thomas was pretty good at catching those small fish!

Rebekah throwing it back!
William told her to kiss it...AND SHE DID! LOL
Ugh...(and of course he was then surprised!)

Mooooommmm...haven't you taken enough?

We all had a pretty good time. For me, it was great to get outdoors and into the fresh air. And, it has been awhile since we've done anything fun on our visits. So that was nice too!
