This morning we went to the Wrentham Sportsman’s Club for their annual Youth Day. Uncle Howard always invites us to come out for this fun event. There was fishing, hayrides, a cookout and each kid got lots of fun things like sunglasses, hats, fidget spinners and even new fishing rods.
Andrew and Eva both reeled in fish. Andrew caught a sunfish and Eva caught a rainbow trout. They enjoyed it despite the fact that their fish, Harry, died that morning. The kids were pretty torn up about that. We’ll try again with another fish in a couple of weeks. Maybe get a proper tank and all that, too.
The weather was great and I do like to fish. Andrew and Eva are both better at casting. Uncle Howard fished with us for a while and then had some duties of his own to perform. He drove kids around on a hayride.
Later on, after the cookout Uncle Howard came back in his Summer Santa outfit. The kids had a great time and we are so grateful to be able to spend this family time each year.
