Take Me to the River September 23, 2009

 Soon after arriving at the river I told Jamie that I used to be an outdoor girl because I grew up loving fishing, camping, and following creeks as far as I could walk.  I was now questioning the outdoor girl in me as a zillion bugs swarmed around my head while I cautiously took each step in the long grass by the river fearing a snake popping out at any moment.  Also my 1st 2 attempts at fishing resulted in 2 very stuck hooks, one of which was in a tree (!?).

As I warmed up to my surroundings my outdoor girl roots took over. I carved a stick for roasting marshmallows, I walked out in the river on slippery rocks, and I showed Elly my fishing skills, this time not getting hooks stuck anyplace. Not even in the mouth of a fish, but it was still fun to cast and reel. I am confident that if it had been the right time of day I would have caught tons of fish. I’m sure they would have been huge and record setting as well.

I’m not in a rush for Elly to get bigger, but it will be fun to show her how to fish, hike, and roast marshmallows one day. I wonder if she will be an outdoor girl or an indoor girl, or maybe a little of both like her Mama.


(SO glad I had not seen the John Deere episode of Mad Men yet. If you watch the show, you know what I’m talking about.)
