I can't believe summer is winding down! (uggh - that makes me sad!)
Sometimes we plan "big" summer trips but most of the time we just pick fun spots to go camping.
So, here is a re-cap of some of the fun things we did!
HAHAHA! Yes, I do like sushi but no, I wasn't trying to eat that fish raw.
This summer we fished a LOT! Although my husband doesn't fish much, my brother is a fish biologist and joined us on one of the trips. He taught me and my son how to tie a true fisherman's knot and get our poles all set up.
And then my awesome brother went on to teach my daughter how to clean the fish!
And I just sat in the hammock and relaxed - hee,hee. OK until it was time to cook them. :-)
This was the boating/beach area of one of the places we stayed - it was so beautiful!
We had a blast renting paddle boards one day. Just to let you know, you do NOT stand on it like a wakeboard, snowboard or skateboard - hahaha - you will fall head first. Yes, I learned the hard way, just stand on it straight on, foot on each side. ;-)
On any GREAT camping trip you have to have a good fish story - right?
So here is mine :-)
I thought I was super cool because I caught this huge fish right in front of these guys that had been fishing all day and caught nothing.
My fish biologist brother had already left the trip so I texted him telling him about my great catch (I'm in blue)
AND THIS IS HIS REPLY:
My "awesome" catch was a stinky uneatable SQUAWFISH! All my coolness immediately left - hahahahaha!
All to say, we had a GREAT time and we were all EXHAUSTED at the end.
I hope all of your summer trips have been relaxing and special.
Till next week my friends!
