Summer Time, And The Livin's Easy!

The kids have been talking about going fishing for a while, so we off we went!

In addition to fishing poles, nets were also used to catch the tiny little fish as well as shrimp, fiddler crabs, and blue crabs.  Pretty exciting stuff.

Note the feet of my son.  He spent most of his time wading around in the mud with the net trying to catch critters.  Fishing just isn't as exciting for him.  We went back a few days later and he caught a crab on his little fishing pole.  No bait, just the little plastic fish it came with to help teach kids how to cast. 

Sophia was super into fishing and really enjoyed sitting with the Daddy and talking all about how to fish, what they might catch, and what they would do with all the fish they caught.  (they didn't catch anything)

I love this photo.  It is the epitome of summer! 
Sitting on a dock fishing, no shoes, no worries, just enjoying the day.

The dock is just about a mile and a half away so we have been riding our bikes out to the water.  Everyone has enjoyed these little rides.

In addition to the fish, crabs, and shrimp, we saw, there was also this super cool ALLIGATOR!!  We thought it was just a log for a while but when it moved upstream we were pretty sure it was a gator.  It finally settled pretty close to us just across the creek from the dock and we were able to get a good look. 

We also found some tadpoles when we were out walking and decided to raise them up.  They grew into these teeny tiny little frogs.  They are sitting on regular aquarium gravel and are about the size of one little bitty rock.  The kids have really enjoyed watching them grow into frogs and it is almost time to release them.
