We caught a Whale!!

Meant to post these last week… but totally forgot! Last week on Travis’ off days, he took the boys fishing.

The 1st day started at like 6am. Crazy fishermen :) – they headed out early, made a pit stop at BO (yall southerners know what that is), ate a quick breakfast, then made their way to the fishing spot (about 10 min from our home).

Not to long after being there though, Owen fell into the water (full submersion) and so they came home for a change of clothes. By this point it was around 8am… Reed and I had gotten up, so we joined the fishing fun for the rest of the morning.

That is when this happened….

Patient Taite… who waited and waited. Caught something big…

I was honestly shocked his line did not break.

Cause this fish was gigantic.

Travis got him close to the surface and grabbed him with this fancy fish hook thing.

Taite said “Oh man, my heart is going so fast!! my knee’s are shaking!” he was all smiles.

He was one proud dude.

Inbetween the fishing & people falling in (Caleb fell in 2, hence the towel above), we enjoyed chasing ducks…

    Love the face pics of Taite while reeling in his catch. Priceless. What a beautiful area to fish. It reminds me of areas in Michigan. I was going to ask if you ate your catch and then saw the last sentence of the post =)
