Cute grin from Leah...Caleb in the background. I think Caleb was the only one who didn't like his fish...I didn't think he even tried it but he is holding his fish plate in his hands here. Did he taste the fish?
We made some good memories today though. Cold Springs Trout Farm offers a chance to come and fish WITHOUT having to buy a license, bring our own gear, or bait our hooks. They charge you per the size of fish that you catch with the average price being about $4.50 per fish. That includes gutting, cleaning and filleting the fish for you!!! We brought charcoal briquets and lemon juice to cook them with. We had forgetten the salt and pepper so they loaned us a large jar of seasoning salt and we had also forgotten plates, silverware or napkins (we were brought our lunches - didn't really plan on eating the fish there until Cade and Ethan showed up without lunches)...anyway, I took the aluminum foil that we brought to cook the fish on and created out own plates!! And we ate the fish with our fingers!! MEMORIES!!
As we were leaving we found this lady at an upper pool where she and her husband were fishing for fingerlings to feed the parrot on her shoulder. We decided next time we came we would fish in this pond as they would probably only cost a buck a fish...the fun for lots less money!
Grandma went through about $5 worth of quarters buying fish food for the kids to toss to the fish.Cade, Ethan, Jerod, and I think Caleb and Josh all had fun catching the fish with their bare hands!!
This is a definite redo in the future. Next time we will come more prepared but I don't think we could have any MORE fun than we had today!
