“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

Fishing Day

Ever since Free Fishing Day at Hagg Lake, we have been excited to get out there and fish some more. A few weeks ago Richard and I hit a bunch of garage sales and struck gold! A guy was selling a bundle of fishing poles and a bag of reals for $10! Woohoo! Richard had fun sitting at the campfire sorting them all out and he got 5 working beautifully! At this same garage sale we picked up a tackle box full of stuff, most of it new for another $10. Fishing may be fun, but for me, frugal fishing is even better! We got up one morning and headed to Coffenbury Lake for some fishing. It was a gorgeous morning and although we did not catch anything, we had a great time together!

The kids got tired of catching nothing after a few hours and since it was warming up they decided to go for a dip in the swimming hole! I have fish for children! They love the water and they love each other! They had a great time swimming and even made some new friends in the process! Gotta love that!!
