Too Big Fish

Recently, the little man got to go to the Sportsman's Show with his Daddy, Grandpa, Uncle and Cousin. Every year, there is this huge open pool set up for the kids to do a little trout fishing. The kids get to fish in groups for a designated amount of time. The trout are all very small, and fairly tame.

His cousin had already caught her fish, and their group time was nearing the end. He had only had a few nibbles. Suddenly, there was a large shadowy shape swimming through the water... "Look at that Monster!" one of the guys said. And then... SPLASH! It took his bait, jumping and splashing about, getting them all wet, and, unable to take it all in, our 3 year old son... Burst into tears!

Here he is with his proud Daddy, and the biggest trout any of them had ever seen! At just 3 years of age, he has already outfished them all, and by the looks of it, is still recovering...

What a catch, Jack! I was giggling the whole time I was reading it. Natalia abandoned her pole and I had to catch her fish for her. Maybe when she is three, she will do as well as Jack.
