Take a Kid Fishing

Ahhh, this is the life! An evening spent kicking back at the local city park, equipped with a kiddie fishing pond and super nice rocks to sit upon.

Alan and I, were still trying to digest our late lunch when Rob and Mandi called to invite us to take the kiddos fishing. Feeling a little sluggish, we looked at each other with a big smiles and instant energy. Who could pass up an adventure like that. We quickly gathered our gear and headed out. Jasmine was waiting for me with the perfect Grandma seat carved out of stone with a lush grassy green cushion.

Jazz didn't waste any time getting her hook into the water. She caught herself a little bluegill. Isn't it something, to see the joy a child gets from fishing.

Ahhh yes, now it's time for dad to teach Kasen the sport. Waiting very patiently, Kasen watches the techniques of putting a hook onto the line....

Next, Grandpa shows Kasen some of his secret power bait. Kasen is intently listening to Grandpas secrets of the sport.

In our gorgeous small town, we have some very nice amenities. This quaint little pond is just one of the amenities you will find here. The park has a fantastic public swimming pool, playgrounds, Bowery's and baseball diamonds. Since I was a little girl, this is where the big 4th of July celebrations have been held including the spectacular firework show.

The city, parks and recreation have done a great job ensuring the pond is always stocked full of fish, for the people and the little kiddos of our town to enjoy.
