Our Fishing Trip

Being a police officer my husband works a lot. Not only does he work his normal shift but he also works off-duty shifts. when it comes to his day off, we usually try to make the most off it and let Charlie pick what he wants to do for the day. Ivan is still young to pick but usually does whatever Charlie does. Today Charlie decided to go fishing with Ivan and  Tanner, his other fishing buddy!  But first, there were a few things we had to get together before we headed out to fish.

    That looks like so much fun. I remember how much my kids used to love to fish at this age. Now I have grand kids and they also love to fish. Very nice comprehensive lists.

    Having a fishing trip sounds like a great way to spend your down time. If you can enjoy time with your children it also adds to the fun. It is always special when you have these times like this to reflect back on.

    Oh my gosh, I haven’t been fishing since I was little! What a fun family activity. I agree a first aid kit is important because I hooked my finger once!

    Great list. My family goes fishing all the time once the weather gets warmer. Extra clothes for everyone comes in handy. My husband has fell in a time or two so he keeps a pair of jeans and sock in his truck.

  5. Melissa says:

    One of my families favorite things to do is to go fishing! I love your tips and ideas to make it fun! What cute family photos and memories that will last a lifetime!

  6. Melanie says:

    We took our kids fishing last year, but we haven’t been this year yet. My youngest boys still do not have the patience for it, especially if we are not catching anything. They do like talking about it for weeks after we have gone, though!

  7. Monica Y says:

    It has been a while since we have been fishing and reading about this makes me want to book a fishing trip. We live by the ocean so I need to look for a place that has a lake nearby. My son would love it

  8. Ali Rost says:

    Awww .. how sweet of you guys to take the boys fishing. I grew up by a small river where my best friend and I used to fish. The best part about it was she didn’t mind the worms! xx

  9. Melanie says:

    It sounds like your darling husband deserves a day off! What a fun family outing together. It’s been so long since my family went fishing, but I’m sure the kids would have fun. They love kid-sized things so kid fishing poles would be a must.
