Thanks to the fuel efficiency of the Toyota, Yaris, these trips didn't break the bank. In fact, I don't think we used a whole tank of gas!
The little man swore he would be bored at my friend's cabin because there would be no other children there and his brother was not with us. Instead, he was pleasantly surprised and occupied all day by fishing. I was amazed at the patience he had while waiting for the fish to bite. I don't fish because I am not that patient. For hours he didn't get a bite and THEN...using the right bait (the secret lure...bratwurst), he started to reel them in ...GIANT sunfish!
Look at the size of this fish!!
Then his father and he took the paddle boat out for a spin while I snapped some nature shots.
The boys are having WAY too much fun out there!
Moses the cat loved all the attention that the little man gave him on our second journey to the neighbor's cottage. It was the end of a beautiful, fun-filled weekend!
