Words I never thought I would hear come out of my husband's mouth: "Fishing is just no fun when we catch them faster than I can bait the next hook."Silly me. I thought the whole point to fishing was to, you know, catch fish! Granted they were little fish, but still, they were fish!
Actually, it was kind of funny. I am not exaggerating when I say that as soon as a baited line hit the water a fish would bite and most of the time Eliza Grace would reel one in.Since both baiting and removing fish from hooks is Scott's job (as I was ensuring that a certain 4 year old did not become an alligator snack), he did not really have any time to hang out and just fish.Needless-to-say, the kids loved this kind of fishing. Well, Eliza Grace did. I have started calling her the "fish whisperer."
Will got bored pretty quickly and occupied himself playing Angry Birds on my iPhone.
And we had fun, which was the point.
Here's a quick look at the Hughes fishing expedition.
Eliza Grace does the intro and, yes, I will mention to her that she needs to hold the camera a little further from her nose next time.
Oh, and Will provides some of his own musical styling at the end. I will mention the whole "not so close to your face" thing to him, too.
