fishing…big city style

chicago river peek by you.chicago river peek by you.

my kids love to go fishing.  this means driving to a small pond close to home or out to family land, digging up or buying worms, getting a can of pop, sitting in the prairie quiet, clearing a spot of tall grass, watching the brown water for bubbles, often never catching a thing.

so imagine their delight to come upon this.

5 signatures later we were fishing.  jerry asked if there were really fish in there.  within minutes all three had caught a fish.  this guy really enjoyed showing jerry up.

helper by you.catch by you.

men waiting by you.touching by you.

the chicago river has new memories for us now!
