The Fishing Derby

Our first family activity in our new town last year was the fishing derby.  The local Lion's Club puts on a fishing derby at the end of April, right after the middle school lake gets restocked with fish.  They provide free poles and bait for kids as well as a cleaning station for those who are lucky enough to get a bite.  This event is awesome, because our kids can get the opportunity to fish in spite of Mr. F. and I having no fishing gear whatsoever.

This year, I found out the date the night before, and despite me not being spontaneous, we had to go. The kids absolutely love it, even though 1) they have no patience for actual fishing and 2) they have yet to catch any fish.  The only thing we seem to catch is submerged logs and the worms that we already place on the hook ("Look! We caught a worm"). This year, I made sure to bring the camera so that I could take some pictures.
