hey, that fishing rig really does work!

and we have a fish!!  jon finally got a fish – a white bass, to be exact…

jon went fishing at lake arlington early this morning and came back with a fish!

after some begging and pleading on my part, jon less than graciously gave in and scaled/gutted the fish outside…

it was a close call but thanks, love, for leaving my kitchen unscaled (those pesky things go everywhere!)…

jasper was pretty impressed with the fish and wanted to watch the process step by step…

plus she wanted to show her daddy her “eastuh candy”...  (she gets her easter basket and 2 pieces of candy from it once a day but she loves to carry it around for as long as i will let her)…

she was pretty interested and not at all disgusted or ickified out by the dead fish or all the red, gooey guts…

girl after my own heart 🙂

however, she didn’t really want to touch the fish – she was quite fine with just watching the goings-on 🙂

but we finally talked her into touching it and here is the smile that resulted from feeling the fish 🙂

yay for jasper lilith!  she touched the fish!

jaspers eye-view…

jasper lilith asked to “take pichture, pease!” so i passed the camera to her and let her take some pictures…

after making sure she understood that she shouldn’t cover the lens with her fingers and showing her where to push to take the shot, we let her loose…

and so here is one (there were a bunch more very similar to this)…

i am standing at the car waving at her and she is calling out to me, “say cheeze, mom-mom!  i taking pichtures!”

fishy, fishy, fishy…

so fishing and jon…  the two words go hand in hand these days so i imagine that there will be many more posts on fishing in the near future 🙂

we spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon at cedar hill  – jon fished while jasper and i wandered some trails, played on the playground and ran on the beach…

it was fun…

the beach is a clay beach…  feels good on the tootsies but i can’t imagine that it would be fun to swim in during the summer!  all that clay stirred up makes for some pretty muddy swimming but we might test the beach out this summer anyway…

trolling through the water and stomping in the mud is an afternoon well spent!
