Nicklas and Seeger participated in a wedding this past July and their gift for being such a great junior groomsman and ring bearer was a fishing pole for each. Since FIL is an avid fisherman, we asked him to take the boys on one of his outings. Nicklas has fished before but this was the first time for Seeger. Both were excited to spend the day with Papa and dad, myself, and Mimi decided to tag along. Papa has an acquaintance who owns a stocked pond a county over from us so we packed some charcoal, hotdogs, watermelon, chips, and drinks and headed off.
Nicklas caught the first fish.
I was hungry so I immediately went to work in making dinner. Seeger fished for a little bit before joining me.
Then it was his turn to catch a fish.
After dinner, the bites tapered off quite a bit so Papa and Nicklas drove to the other end of the pond to try their luck. They hit the jackpot and caught several walleye. Nicklas reined this one in.
As the sun went down, we decided to call it a day and head back to Lafayette. Right before leaving, I took this picture of the full moon rising. It was definitely a fun outing for everyone!
