Fishing Fun

I took this pic from my back patio. We were just about to head out for a few minutes of fishing before bedtime. I love having a palm tree in my yard. When I was a child, my family always vacationed in Florida. As we would make the drive down each year, my mom would would get so excited as soon as she saw the first palm tree. The sight of those trees meant we were getting close to a week of rest, relaxation, and fun at the beach. Well, I guess it stuck, because every time I see my tree it makes me want to grab my coffee and just chill for awhile. It makes me happy.

All I have to say is that Chris did not catch that fish, but he was more than willing to be the one in the picture. I can't say I blame him. I would be frustrated too if I had just spent the last 3 days out there trying to catch ANYTHING, and my wife and son catch one on their first cast in less than 5 minutes!! Hang in there, Babe. I let you reel in the next one.

POOR THING. He finally gave up and came inside about 2 hours later.
