They are all up in Minnesota and will soon be enjoying fishing with Grandma and Grandpa. Now, I have 3 nephews and one niece all belonging to my brother and sister. There is, however, another nephew on the way via my other brother and sister. Believe me when I say, G-ma and G-pa have their hands full when these kids are around. I want to be able to explain this to you, but I think it is better if I just show you....
Honestly, these kids kill me with joy and love. They are just so crazy fun. When they get excited, I think they are going to have a seizure. They are intensely excited when catching fish.... and when there is cake. They love cake. And frosting.
I mean look at them. They go crazy. CRAZY!
I'm hoping to get around a do some casting myself next week here in Omaha. It will be quiet time alone, relaxing and enjoying the last few weeks I have here. But I will be thinking about the joy my little buddies get from being at the Lake in Minnesota, fishing with family. I don't need someone to take me fishing anymore, but they do. And these trips while young can not only create memories, but also an appreciation for the world in which we live. That is something I think is very valuable.
