Going Fishing

Saturday we went down to the river near our house and took the kids fishing. They never caught anything but it was a nice relaxing afternoon. We were amazed when we got to the river because the water was unusually high. We have had so much rain this year. In fact, yesterday was the first day that it had not rained at all in over 3 weeks. We like to go down to the river from time to time and play on the rocks or eat a picnic lunch but today it was just fishing and relaxing.
She enjoyed fishing at first but it didn't take her long to realize you had to have patience and be still for a while. When I asked her if she had a good time fishing she said, "It was fun but then it got boring."

Hannah's first time to go fishing.

For most of the year this area is not this full of water. Usually, there are rocks down at the bottom of the waterfall that the kids play on. Sometimes they are able to walk across the top of the waterfall because there is so little water, but now.

This is my idea of a nice afternoon fishing.
