If you remember, Lexi had issues with her life jacket last week. Well this weekend we’re supposed to go visit an elderly couple who live on the lake. They really want to take us out on their boat. I really want to go out on their boat. Lexi really didn’t want to go out on their boat. Scott told her he would go buy her a life jacket if she would wear it on the boat. Also, the girls wanted a fishing rod. So last night we took the girls to Wal-Mart and got them Barbie fishing rods. They had no life jackets so Scott took them to Target today and got those.
And today Scott taught them how to cast it. I think that’s what you call it anyway. I’m clueless about fishing!
Emma really, really…
got into it.
Then they got serious. It was time to try out their life vests and try it out at the pool.
As green as our water is right now, I wouldn’t be surprised if they actually caught something.
I think they eventually got the hang of it though. That looks about right…
Here are a few videos. If you can’t see them, in one the girls are practicing in the front yard and the other I try my hand at it and utterly fail. I’m a lot of things but a fisherman is not one of them.
Videos might not be done processing but I need to get to bed!
