Fishin' With Daddy!

So today after dropping my beautiful wife off for at the airport, I took Ellie to Wal-Mart to get a phone charger. While we were there we saw the fishing poles and I asked Ellie if she wanted to go fishing. Excitedly she said, "YES!" I bought her a little Disney Princess fishing pole and made a sunset trip to our local lake, "Bass Lake". It's wonderful having this local lake only 2 miles from the house.
We cast her line in only about 3-4 times before we caught our first fish. She loved watching the little fish come out of the water and dance on the dock. Even more though, she loved getting close, touching it, and yes, she even had to give it a hug before she threw it back. She had a BLAST!

After fishing, we went to see the geese coming in. She loves to chase geese. We worked on a slow and quiet approach (which only lasted about 2 steps), and she fed them bread. We also were able to see a turtle that another guy reeled in. It was A LOT of fun, and as you can see from the pictures, it was a beautiful sunset looking over the calm lake. The videos are cute as heck, so check them out. I LOVE MY LIFE!
