My parents live in North Carolina, but they recently bought a second home here in Florida near us. They come stay every couple months or so. Their new house is on a little lake/marsh, and the kids' favorite thing to do is fish off their deck.
I took Avery over to visit this week while the boys were in school, and she of course wanted to fish. This is really her first time doing it without the boys around, so she got Grandpa's full attention, and most importantly, her own fishing rod to hold (usually she's more of an observer).
Pretty soon, she looked over the ledge, and what did she see?
A fish on her line!!!
Her very first fish!
Grandpa getting it off the hook...
...and she got to hold it herself.
Time to throw it back!
So the title of the post also says "Second". When the second fish got pulled out of the water, it flipped a little and brushed her cheek.
She freaked out a bit... no more touching the fish for her!
At least Grandma was there to comfort her!
And here's a smile again!
Avery's little outfit came from the thrift store- such a sweet little set! Linking up here and here this
