Another Camping Trip

We went camping at the lake this last weekend and I’ll tell you, we had a blast. It was nice weather and we had a great time with the boys and Kevin’s brother’s family.

We went out Friday night and came back on Sunday. The majority of the time was spent talking and fishing. On Sunday we spent most of the day on a boat and needless to say it was a lot of fun. We spent the morning fishing and then the afternoon we went to the canyon and around the water looking around and enjoying the water.

Fishing this time was a lot better then it was when we went over Father’s Day. Chris caught three fish, Josh caught two fish, Kevin caught two fish, and I caught one fish. Here is the information on each of them.


13 ounces and 1 foot
8 ounces and 11 inches
1 pound and 13 inches


1 pound 4 ounces and 14 ½ inches
13 ounces and 13 inches


1 pound 6 ounces and 16 ½ inches
1 pound 5 ounces and 15 inches


1 pound 4 ounces and 14 ½ inches

Needless to say the fish we caught this time were pretty good in size. Several of them put up a huge fight and that was wonderful. We had a great time bringing them in and the smiles were wonderful.

This weekend we’re going to the mountain for some relaxing time. It will be nice to be in the cooler air and not spend the time watching a fishing pole. LOL

Gone Fishin’

My boys have gone fishing several times since they were little, but never have caught anything, but that all changed over the Father’s Day weekend. You see Kevin took Thursday off and took the boys to the lake really early in the morning. They fished from 5:30 am until about 11 am with no avail. They decided to go out again on Friday morning and started around 5 am with still no fish to be had.

We had decided if they could find a good spot we’d stay the weekend and that’s exactly what we did. They found the perfect spot so we were there for the weekend. They fished on and off on Friday afternoon, then again on Saturday morning and part of the afternoon again. Still there were no fish for them to catch. At this point they were pretty sure there was on three fish in the lake. LOL

Saturday evening rolled around and things were about to change and it was definitely for the better. We were told the best time to fish was in the late night hours, so we decided to give it a try. Shortly before midnight this is what happened.

Shortly after midnight, this is what happened.

So as you can see it all paid off and the boys were able to get their fish. Here are the details.

Chris named his fish Richard. He weighed in at 16 oz and he was 1 foot, 6 inches.

Josh named his fish Billy Bob. He weighed in at 14 ½ oz and he was 1 foot, 2 inches.

The boys were so happy that they were able to catch the fish. They followed the entire process to the end and were happy to do it.

I’ll tell you what, Kevin and I are so proud of our boys. They wanted to catch a fish so bad and it was awesome to watch it happen.

Here are some more pictures of our Father’s Day weekend camping adventure.
