Fun Exercise.......

Monday, May 24, 2010

I spent Saturday with my almost-3 year old Grand-daughter. Those of you who are around 3-year olds know that the energy is endless!!! We bought her a fishing pole a few weeks ago and she has been very anxious to use it. We took her to a park which is on a lake. We showed her how to cast the line out and then how to know when to pull on it to hook the fish. The bobber fascinated her and when it would go under the water, she would get too excited and pull too soon. Finally, she hooked her first fish and forgot to reel it in and simply walked backwards till it was on shore. It was a good sized bluegill and we put it in a pail of water. She wanted to touch it, so I showed her how to without hurting the fish. Then she wanted to put it back in the lake, so we did. Next, we moved on to the playground where she managed to hit every piece of equipment there. We spent about an hour there and by the time we left, we were all exhausted. I haven't PLAYED that hard in a long time. I managed to burn calories while spending the day with my favorite little buddy!!!

    What an experience you all had, fishing together. Watching E discover all these things had to be so special. That age has an overabundance of energy.
