Like Father, Like Daughter
David comes from a fishing family, and he decided that it was time to begin passing down this tradition to his own children. We took a trip to the Bass Pro Shop in Mesquite and procured a pink Disney princess pole, and Emma and Dave embarked on their maiden fishing trip on June 12th. (I stayed home with Madeline, who was taking a nap. We feel it is in the best interest of Madeline's young life to keep her home from these fishing trips, as she has a tendency to drown herself when near any large body of water). Destination: the catch-and-release pond in the front of our subdivision. The trip was a success, with Emma catching three fish.
Notice the donut in Emma's hand. Donuts at the beginning of each expedition are a major part of the excitement. They have been twice so far, and Emma has learned to cast and reel in by herself. She can't wait to show Grandpoppy her skills!
