Day 2 of Camping . . .

Today we fished. and fished. and fished. And really didn't catch anything. Last night Adam ran down and threw in a line with Shad and they caught a large wide mouth bass, but today despite a lot of lines in the water we were mostly skunked-- Trent did catch one first thing in the morning but after that it was zilch for our family, but we had fun. The kids all learned how to cast and bait their hooks -- with LIVE minnows no less. I was surprised that even the girls would pick up their minnow and thread the hook through its upper lip and then back through the head between the eyes so that you didn't kill your bait and it would swim around on your hook in the water.

Little Owen sure tried hard to fish too, but mostly it just tired him out. I found Owen and Trent napping in the shelter later that afternoon.

I even had to go out and get 200 more bait minnows!

What's that, Julianne??  Why it's 200 live minnows. #thingsineverthoughtidbuy

We roasted hot dogs, made s'mores, and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

These were what the cute shelters looked like.

Once again we all gathered to look for the comet.
