Fishin’ Day @ the Neches

Oh my.  My world got a little bigger yesterday! 


We have been wanting to go fishing with our friends, they kept telling us how fun it was.  Finally, yesterday we woke up between 5:15-5:30 and got all our gear ready (yes, too much gear) and headed out about 6:15.


Along the way we enjoyed watching the sun rise – it was beautiful and changing colors and picture every couple minutes!!

We arrived at the river about 6:45 ready to go!

We met up with the Brown Family – her daughter hung out in the car and rested, too cold for her.  Her boys though, oh my, what a blessing they were to my family and especially my children!!

We fished in their favorite spot first, while they caught a few, we did not.  We even had a little fire to warm up a bit and then we moved on to another spot.

At this spot almost everyone caught at least one!!

It was so much fun!  We expected it to feel colder than it was, but it was not bad at all.

The Brown boys helped my boys learn about lures, hooks, how to cast, repair their lines, and a few knots in there too.  It was just awesome to watch their patience with my gang, and their hearts to really spend time with them.  It was truly amazing to watch.


I had so much fun chatting with Ms. Brown about our families, our stories of how we got here – just getting to know more about each other.

And now?  I’m hooked!!  (ha ha) – I can’t get to the fishing aisle in Wal-Mart fast enough!!  And we are already planning our next trip – maybe Monday?  It was just a perfect morning!!
