Fishing for memories

My Dad found out about the Klineline Kids Fishing day at Salmon Creek pond in Vancouver, WA and decided to take Rich and my kids. The girls have talked about fishing with Papa ever since they can remember and haven't gotten to yet. For five dollars each, the girls got a t-shirt and a really great fishing pole! I guess it's a huge event and with the help of the WA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, 7,000 fish get dumped into the pond for the kids to catch. Each kid gets a 2-fish quota and 45 minutes to fish. There were even volunteers there to clean the fish for each kid! My girls both caught their two fish and had a great time. They didn't allow catch and release, so Papa has the fish and is going to cook them up for us sometime soon :)

Rich is in the middle of the picture in the orange sweatshirt with the girls on either side of him. Papa shares his expertise with Allie :)

Allie carried her bloody catch proudly!
