The fish was so BIG!

Submitted by on October 4, 2011 – 2:30 pmOne Comment

We spent Sunday at my husband’s family’s lake property in Mineola.  Now, when you hear lake property — don’t start thinking about a huge house on the lake. In fact it is a piece of land that has been in his family for years, purchased by his grandfather to be the location for a retirement home. Well it never ended up that way , but it has a very nice one room structure with a kitchenette (and indoor bathroom!) with a large pergola overlooking the lake. The weather could not have been more beautiful with the light breeze and bright sunshine.

The highlight of the day was fishing. Armed with is “Sponge Bob” kid sized fishing pole, our 2 1/2 year old could not wait to get out in the boat. About 10 minutes later they come trolling back, “Get the camera, Carson caught a fish” … Here is the fish he caught, definitely Carson size!! He was so excited!

HOWEVER; after a quick lunch of grilled hot dogs and chips they were back out in the boat again — and 10 minutes later, “Get the camera, Carson caught another fish” !! This one is just a bit larger and as Carson put it, “Daddy, I caught the biggest fish”!My husband spent his childhood coming to this property with his family, cousins, and friends. Now the next generation of kids are going to do the same, enjoy the outdoors, go fishing, get dirty and be “kids” for the day! As we head for home at the end of the day, we always say, “Bye 49! Be back soon” (the name of the property is called 49, after the lot number when it was purchased!) The kids are asleep within 5 minutes of leaving, exhausted after the day of good old fashion fun!
