Fishing buddies

The kid's celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary this past weekend, so we were on babysitting duty for the munchkins for the whole weekend.  I have learned it is best to keep them busy, so we picnicked in the park, spent lots of time at the playground, and finished off the weekend at Riverside Park near their home.

When we got there, we say a little boy fishing with his father.  Danica and JJ talked to the little boy, oohed and aahed over the fish that he caught.  They were allowed to touch the fish before the boy threw it back into the water.   Well, after that, the kids went on a search for sticks to use as fishing rods.  We soon found two suitable sticks, and I tied long grass on the end of each stick, to serve as fishing line.  We didn't have any hooks or bait, but the kids had fun standing at the water's edge to see if any fish came along to check out their "grass bait". 
It was a perfect afternoon for fishing.
They moved along the shore to try new spots, but sadly no fish took their bait. 
After the fishing fun, we stopped to check out a fossil, climb a tree or two, and throw a few sticks into the water.
This was a nice ending to a fun weekend with the kids.  I was one tired granny at the end of the weekend though, and was in bed by 8:30 last night.  Think I might hit the hay early again tonight.
