First Canoe Trip

Darby and I went out in the canoe this past Friday for the first time. It was awesome. We spent the night before at the store picking out her life jacket, paddle, and hat. I am feeling much better now and was able to treasure every second of this adventure. I can't wait until Sutton is older then we will have Marta, Darby, and Sutton in the boat!



Darby could not understand why the fish would not bite. I kept telling her the fish could hear her talking THE WHOLE TIME. She just looked at me and said, "dad I can't hear them...so they can't hear me." She is beyond funny. Needless to say we did not catch anything. It's very hard when you cast the line and your daughter yell's, "here fish...take this hook!" at the top of her lungs over and over. She is outstanding.

She did work up a sweat helping to paddle the boat.

Enjoyed the pix. So glad you are feeling better. I know that was fun. I have some great memories of canoeing with Jerrod and Carly... not in as picturesqe surroundings though. You can tell Darby the whole thing about fish biting is a myth. I personally have no conclusive evidence that fish can actually be caught using a hook. I believe it is all a hoax.
