Friday Clint had the day off with us, and let me just say... it was the perfect day! There were a few hiccups, but that is what makes it so wonderful, my awesome hubby persevered and made it a great day for all of us! We got up at o'dark thirty, hopped in the truck with the kiddos and headed up to Willow Creek to see if we could catch some fish. We got there just when the sun was coming up and Clint headed out with the ice auger to drill some holes while I started the process of getting the kids dressed and ready. I'm not exaggerating when I say process. Dane's getting pretty good. He gets that it's all part of the deal and if he wants to go, he's gotta play by mommy's rules! So, he puts up with me putting 20 layers on him, toasty toes, a hat, gloves, etc. Kimber... not so much. She is still at the age where she doesn't get it and she really feels like I am working hard to make her miserable.
Anyway, as I'm getting the kids ready, I keep looking out to make sure Clint is doing okay. Well, he is fine but the auger isn't cooperating. By the time I get both kids ready, he has 2 holes done, but it is obviously not going well... So, he runs back to the truck and get some tools... But, no luck.
Here are the boys trying to figure out what is wrong...
Perhaps Kimber can help...
So, we head back to the truck and pile back in. Dane was SO DISAPPOINTED but was a trooper and was patient while we tried to figure out how we could save the trip.
The fish were biting really good, but weren't too greedy and wouldn't take the whole bait. They were just nibblers. Fortunately, with the help of my special guy, we landed this nice trout!
I really love Willow Creek cause if we aren't catching fish then we go for walks, or go sledding, or something fun like that.
