My mom came to visit this past Friday. We spent all day Saturday at the camper in Townsend where they were celebrating the 4th of July early with hotdogs, watermelon, hayrides, tractor parades and fireworks.
We spent a lot of the day in the water
And as usual, spent the evening fishing.
Just before dark Paul decided to try for a catfish instead of the normal sunfish. Everyone, the boys and all of the other people around us waiting for fireworks, were excited when he pulled one up...
So of course when we made our way back up to Townsend on Monday, Rylan wanted to give it a try. He is the only one really patient enough for this- and it paid off:
I haven't seen him smile that big for so long in awhile!
