This weekend, we had one last hurrah before the start of the new school year. The weather was cool and very windy and it rained a lot today. But other than that, it was a nice end to summer. We stayed at my parents' cottage north of here on a small lake…I'm sure I've posted pics from there before. :) So the boys enjoyed their usual frog hunting, fishing, and swimming. We also taught them how to play slap jack. The youngest had trouble remembering what it was called, so we had interesting variations including "flap jack" and "smack jack". LOL
At one point while fishing, hubby told the youngest to "kiss the fish". And he made that scrunched up "eeewwww" face you see in this upper right photo. Ha ha ha And when he was reeling in his next catch he said, "It's a BIG one" while older brother demonstrated and told him to reel faster. The fish was maybe 6 inches long. LOL
Lots of small perch and sunfish were caught that day…not only with the traditional fishing poles, but also with nets. The boys swam underwater with their nets in hand and were catching the fish like that. They called it scuba fishing (but without the scuba gear) – LOL.
Good fun was had by all. And now we look forward to the arrival of fall.
