Today was the Fishing Tournament!
The brand new fishing rod we’d bought didn’t work (sigh), but I don’t think Jace knew the difference. The limit was 5 fish. After a couple of the guys had “helped” their own kids get the 5 fish, they were looking for excuses to keep fishing. And they found Jace. We had several men trying to catch a fish for Jace. Jace humored them by standing on the bank, but just kept saying to me, “Mommy, can we go get a cupcake now?” After we got the cupcake he was more content on the bank. They did hook a fish for him, but it got off before it made it to shore. Which might be a good thing…. When we told Jace we were going fishing, he was very excited to feed the fish. Smacking one with a rock probably wasn’t part of his plan….
The highlight of the fishing tournament came when Jace found a caterpillar.
He was the first name called for the prize drawing and he claimed a MegaBloks dump truck. So exciting. On his next round, he got a fancy new fishing rod (which will be great for next year). He was the final name called on round three and he got a tackle sorting tray.
Afterwards, we got some water ice (they had super yummy flavors today!), then headed home. Jace played with his sand table while I made dinner. And, in other exciting news, Luke has found his toes! He’s quite excited about this discovery!
