Last Saturday was our annual Cast for Kids even. Cast for Kids is AMAZING!! Seriously, if you have a special needs child, check out the website and see if an event is going on in your area. It is so much fun and the kids love it. And it’s FREE!! So what are you waiting for? Go check out http://www.castforkids.org/.
For the first time ever we took a sibling on the boat with us. So this year it was me, my dad, Matthew & Lauren. We had a great time. Matty was so funny. And a smidge annoying. If we heard him say, “Where is him, Grandpa?” one more time he could have been left on shore . The fishing kinda sucked because the lake had rose a foot a day from snow run off. But that didn’t matter much.
We only caught 2 fish. The first one we caught Matty was pretty stoked about. But the second it got in the boat he was yelling for us to toss it over the other side. His grandfather’s taught him well about catch and release. The second fish that was caught had him scrambling to the back of the boat. Silly boy.
After fishing we had a BBQ and the kids were given goody bags and awards. Matthew doesn’t care about much of that. Just the food . The state police came with their command center, cars, chopper and boat for the kids to check out. And Cold Stone Creamery gave free ice cream! It was very yummy.
We can’t wait until next year. And Lauren and I are hoping that she doesn’t have a sprained ankle so we can volunteer more
