Gone Fishin'

We often walk around the Fellsmere Park/Pond just down the street from our house and we see people fishing all the time.
I think this is where Addi first got the idea that she wanted to go fishing.
So with a decorative candy cane, tape, thread, a paperclip and string cheese we were in business.

Addi waiting for a bite.

We found the "hot spot" by the bridge the fish were really biting!
(please ignore the "frog squat")

We didn't have real hooks so the fish would come and eat the cheese off the end of of the paper clip.
You could feel the fish nibbling the cheese so that was exciting.

Addi brought exam gloves in case we caught one.
They came in handy for re-cheeseing the then slimy "hooks"

We had a great time and now all she wants to do is fish.
