A birthday fishing party...

 My baby is 7.  Can you believe it?  I don't know where the time has gone.  Seems like just yesterday he was waking up in the night always needing something.  Wait..... That WAS yesterday!  So he may not be the best sleeper in the world, but he's still my baby and he still turned 7.  When you have a b-day during fair week, things get a little hectic so we had an on-going b-day week to try to make it special.  First and foremost was a fishing party for him and a few of his friends....

Catch of the day!!! (Can you see it?!?!?)

Thank goodness the fish were biting that day.  It hadn't occurred to me that 6 little kids might get bored and restless in about 5.6 minutes if the fish weren't biting right away.  I neglected to think of a plan B ahead of time if this was the case so luck was on my side that day.

Things were a little slow at first so they had to chill out in chairs...

The fish were teeny tiny itty bitty little things but it didn't dampen their enthusiasm each time they hauled one out!  They were lined up to get the fish off the lines and new bait put back on!!

The b-day boy and one of his many catches!!

Most of the fish made it back to the water in time to grow for another day.  At least we hope anyway!

Friendships built over a fishing pole.... nothing can compare!


And of course we had to have snack time because fishing is VERY hard work ya know!  Despite the 106 degree day, I think a good time was had by all.  And special thanks to neighbor Mike for helping bait hooks for 2 hours straight!!  You're a trooper!!
