At the Lake

Eliza waiting for someone willing to take her out on the boat.

James was happy being on anything with a motor...

...even if it was a little canoe with an electric motor.

The frog

Every year we torture the nature around years past it has been fish only...this year someone was so nice as to donate the frog. Thankfully Uncle David "accidentally" tipped over the jug at some prime moment and the frog was saved to be a prince to someone else. Jenna took it pretty well!

This is Jenna with her cousin Michelle.

On the Boat...

James, the little cheese ball! He was such a good boy to be on the boat!
This is how Eliza did most of her fishing...looks comfy huh?

Eliza's Fish

Last weekend we were able to go camping with Grandpa Jim and Granny Lee at Panguitch lake in Utah. We had a great time. Eliza and Jenna got a new fishing pole from Grandpa and were so excited to fish. The girls and James were great out on the boats on Saturday. Eliza was able to catch her first fish too! Except, it didn't make it in the net. It was a whopper but broke the line before it was netted.

Monday morning we went out again to try and resolve that problem. Eliza scored again! The minute I could see the fish in the water I started taking pictures but here it is in all its glory! Almost 19 inches of cut throat trout.Unfortunately that is exactly the wrong size cut throat and we had to put it with the excitement of catching this nice fish we had the tears and anguish of releasing it back into the lake.
