Owen went fishing the first time in our neighbors pond. He was so excited, he was going with Duke and Blair (Duke's good friend). I stayed back with Blairs wife, Sarah, and the kids. They have a little boy Colt who is a day younger than Abbie. They are a handful together!!! They really have a love hate relationship. Most of the time its just hate.
On to the fishing expedition.....
They caught several, nothing crazy, the pond is stocked but hasn't been fished in a long time so they aren't crazy big due to over population. (or thats what the guys said, maybe cause they just didn't catch BIG ones, HA)
Back to Owen, Duke said that he couldn't keep bait on his line, he was constantly having to re-bait his hook, and Owen being Owen is a little impatient.
Owen caught his first fish, he was so happy to tell me all about it. Already learning the rules of fishing, he used his hands to tell me how big it was, and of course, it was as big as him. He told me how it was bleeding. He had so much joy about his fish.
I asked Duke if he had taken any pictures and he laughed, so did Blair! Wait.....no pictures of my son catching his first fish.......and just why not??
Owen got scared and let go of the pole and the fish took the pole into the pond. Duke being the great dad he is jumped in, waist deep to get it. Sweet, right?? He then tells me that it was a good pole and he coudn't let it just sink. Nothing about Owen's first fish. Imagine that!!!
Blair said it was hilarious to watch, and I am sure it was.
Anyway, we did get some pictures of him with the fish in the bed of the truck. (Colt thought it was super cool too)
