wish a wish to catch a fish

P1040613Our boys have been wanting to catch a fish this summer and despite our one lame attempt their dad's best efforts, they have not experienced reeling in a fighter.

Thank God for friends.  Our friend David has his dad's fishing boat for the summer and offered to use one of his few days off of his orthopedic residency to take Kenyon and the older boys for a day of fishing.

David picked up my three sleepy men at 4:30 in the morning and they spent the day on a beautiful reservoir about an hour away.

They had a great day and caught a bunch of HUGE fish.  That night we had their entire family come up for a fish feast and lots of fun.

Thank goodness that David's wife Darcy had a good recipe because I stink at cooking fish.

Here's an early morning catch:

The boys had a little too much fun driving the boat, if you ask me.  In fact, The Hunter looked at my beloved while driving and said, "Dad, this is the life!"

It sure is buddy, you have no idea.



When they got back to our house, our little stream came in handy because they just took all the fish down and cleaned them in the freezing cold water.



  1. That is the life! Looks like a lot of fun. Wish I was there!

  2. So, so great.

    The first thing the boys said was "Hey! Who are those boys with uncle Dave?" followed by "Can we come?!" :)

    Love the pictures friend. So glad the boys had fun. You all are a special family.


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
