Gone Fishing...

Sunday morning Paul wanted to take the kids to the pond about 15 minutes from here and do some fishing. So, we all loaded up in the van and headed off to sweat and be HOT in the Texas sun so the kids could fish. Paul got their fishing poles ready and Nathan threw his in first, 4 seconds after the line hit the water, Nathan had a bite. We all thought it was going to be a perch as that is the main thing we catch there. Well, when Nathan pulled it in, it was a catfish. Not a very big one, maybe 8 inches, but the biggest fish he had ever caught!! We continued to fish and catch more perch, until Nathan was reeling in his line and it was too heavy for him to pull it in. Upon closer inspection he had snagged a turtle. The turtle had gotten the hook caught in its flipper/foot and we were prepared to try to help the turtle out, but the hook came out before we could get it close enough for a picture of Nathan with his turtle. For the rest of the day Nathan was so excited about his turtle that his favorite phrase for the day was; "Dad, I caught a turtle!!"
