Fishing with Uncle Jared

Well, we had a fishing afternoon, but it wasn't quite the day we imagined. After church we headed up to the lake to rent a boat for the afternoon. My parents had called in the morning to make sure there were going to be boats available, and they said it wouldn't be a problem getting one, but we could only reserve one if we were paying for the whole day, which we weren't. So we drove up there only to find all the boats taken, go figure. So, we decided to have our picnic and throw rocks into the lake and then go fishing from the shore.

Uncle Jared spent the night with Noah, so he joined us on our adventure. Here are some great pics of him and the boys. And I'm sure it goes without saying that he did make fun of Jacob's big head, and I quote, "Wow, Jacob, you must have really strong neck muscles to hold up that huge head of yours!" What can I say, our boys do have huge heads! Jared tells the best stories, so we enjoyed talking with Jared and catching up with him!

During the fishing part of our afternoon, we all walked over to Small Fry, which is a little part of the lake that they stock for anglers under 14 learning how to fish. We were there for about 45 minutes and Noah only had one bite. There wasn't too much activity, but we were also there in the middle of the day, not the best time for fishing. Finally, Noah caught a fish and we all were in shock for a second! When Noah was reeling in his fish, I don't think he really knew what was going on since he had five adults yelling and screaming in excitement:) I grabbed the video camera as fast as I could and got it just as he was pulling the fish out of the water. He didn't really like the fish all that much, at least he freaked out when he didn't want to touch it--until of course the car ride home when he asked to touch the fishy. See for yourselves in our clip of the afternoon with Jared. Thanks again Grammy, Auntie Karen, and Mom Mom for the video camera, we are loving using it and documenting all the special moments with the boys! The video is at the bottom, when I was importing it it came in with a few choppy parts, I'm not sure why, but I didn't want to take the time to fix it, so sorry!
