Sophie got her Dora fishing pole for her 3rd birthday.  Recently John Curtis has shown some interest in it, so Taylor thought it was time to get him his very own fishing pole this weekend.

He spent some time practicing in the backyard on Sunday.  You didn't want to be anywhere near him when he had this pole in his hands.
The old pro
Yesterday afternoon we decided to try the new pole out in our favorite fishing hole at the Barron's house on the lake.
The Spiderman fishing pole caught a big catfish.  We weren't sure it would hold.
Sophie was the only one who would go near it.
Waiting patiently
Fish #2 with the Spiderman pole.  Once again, John Curtis kept his distance.
Fish #3 with the Spiderman pole.  He ventured a little closer this time.  The new pole works great.  Of course it helps that they feed the fish at this particular spot and we throw fish food in when we go there.  It helps for the attention span of a 4 year old and a 2 year old.

What a great catch! Fish for supper? Bring your poles when you come to Grammy's and we will go to the little lake by our house. I love fish!

If I have to fish, I want to go to a house with a fishing hole and a chair. It looks mich cleaner. I can tell Sophie loves to fish.

Did you keep the fish? Spiderman fishing pole seems pretty lucky or maybe it's just the cute caster!

You guys do so many fun things. I am going to have to steal some of them to do with Caroline when she gets older.
