Paul has talked about going fishing since he learned how to talk. We are not even sure where he got the idea, but it exponentially increased from the time a little game with all the plastic little fish came into our home. On a Saturday morning, we finally got a chance to go fishing with his dad for the first time. Recently, Priscilla was at a resale shop and found fishing rod for $2. We then went and picked up basic fishing tackle rounding out our whole investment in fishing gear for under $8. Paul was ecstatic, and daddy was happy about the price.
Catching it was his job, but this little fish did not want to give the hook back easily :-).
Check out a video of a later fish that Paul caught:
We fished for over an hour together. Paul’s attention did not fade. He also recently learned how to climb a tree and is always up for other adventures.
Biking to Chicago
On another Saturday, we had the blessing of some of David’s siblings watching Paul and Davia while we took an early morning ride to downtown Chicago.
Just a few more miles to go and we were inspired because we caught sight of the Willis Tower. In all, we biked well over twenty miles. David’s siblings met us down town with the children and we drove our car back while they drove the bikes back home.
