Fishing, Swimming, and Summer Fun

This Summer has been a different kind of adventure for us, previously the boys would go to summer school and I would do things with them on the weekends, we are going out a lot more this year and having lots of small outings.



One of our new favorite places to go is a lake that our friend has access to, it is really nice and calm since it is gated and you have to know someone to be able to get in. This allowed me to work on teaching my boys to swim and amazingly Aedan is overcoming his fear of water pretty quickly.


Last time we visited the lake the kids caught some fish by using a butterfly net and a hot dog, it was pretty funny to watch. Now they want to learn to fish for real and they are going to get the chance pretty soon.


Today we realized that our cheapie kid fishing poles were not working for us and we lost three lures in the rocky lake bottom. There will be some shopping and gear collecting so we can do it up right and get them the real fishing experience.
Even Freya go in on the fun at the lake, she tried to catch fish in her net but was unsuccessful. She had a blast just playing in the sand with her friend and brothers.
