A Day Fishing with Grandpa
I have to say this put a huge smile on my face. Being able to take my kids out fishing with my dad is an amazing feeling.
I remember growing up and every time that my family would go on vacation or a trip my parents always made it a point that we tried to go fishing. I loved that opportunity to spend time with my dad side by side fishing. Looking on it now I wish i could do it more but life gets in the way some times.
Recently it worked out that me and my dad had the same day off and the kids were out of school, so we took them fishing. I think I was more excited then the kids were when it came to going fishing with my dad. Just to play its safe we took the kids to one of the local parks that had a pond with a play ground just in case.
I sat back and was able to enjoy watching my dad interact with my kids. The smile on my dad’s face was the highlight of the entire day. He was having so much fun casting out Squeaks line with just a bobber on it and her making him reel it back in right away over and over.
My Buddy was daring and grabbed the bait cup with the worms it. He sat there for a while and just played with them until he picked one up and it fell, then he was done. He wanted nothing to do with picking it back up and putting in the cup
Monkey Toes enjoyed trying to it all by her self.
I hope my kids enjoy their time with me just as much as I enjoyed my time with my dad. We may have gotten skunked but we all had a good time.
