and he will bed/plead/pester/annoy you to take him back EVERY DAY!
My dad has a hobby...well he has a few, but next to farming he likes to go fishin'. I have met two of the fishing buddies so far. Lucky for Jense, his grandpa is willing to take him, and has taken him every time Jensen has asked. In fact, this last week they went two nights back to back.
Jensen does have quite the knack for fishing. One night when I went with him, of all the people with their lines cast... Jense kept pulling out the fish. The limit is 4 and he reached his while all the other fisherman were wondering what in the world he had on his hook.
Jense and Andrew each caught some fish.

Did I mention it is beautiful here?
Mia's new obsession is the slide! If she sees one, she will demand, "Go Down the Slide!!" grabbing your hand until you get on board. Maybe we should get her a slide for her birthday.
One of the fishing trips included all the cousins that live here. We made Navajo tacos... yum!
Ellie is not super impressed with fishing, but always wants to go so she can play on the playground. Her first time fishing was on fish day or something and she caught two fish herself. I think she was excited about it, but when they got home she was sad because the fish was dead.
Sam was interested, but got a little scared. He isn't sure about fish, but Looooves dogs!
Sweet little Mia loved reeling in the line. Once Papa would cast it out she would reel it back in while looking out into the pond repeating, "wher'd uh fizzy go?" Poor girlie just wanted to bring in a fish. I should have had Jensen let her reel one in, but Jense is just so excited about being such a great fisherman that it's hard to pull it from his excited little hands. Maybe next time we'll ask him if he wants to let Mia bring one in. Knowing him, I'm sure he'll say yes.
Needless to say we have been eating a lot of fish around here!! Hello fish tacos. Luckily this family is no stranger to fish tacos. John had a fish taco quota that needs to be filled every couple of weeks. If you are looking for a killer recipe... look no further! I will post it separately.
