This past Sunday we went up to Nicholas' Grandmother's house to go Ice Fishing. She lives on a lake which she assured us was frozen enough so off we went.
Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house we go...
There was no way in this whole wide world that I was going to go on the ice. I stood on the pier with my mom parts all in a ball of worry as my children stood in the middle of a frozen lake with 40 degree temperatures warming the earth.
I was so, so scared the ice was going to crack and just envelope the whole fold of them.
The picture above is Emma and a friend of Nick's Grandma's, Keith, who was taking them out.
Nicholas and Calvin making their way.
Calvin on the ice....allow me to interject an EEEEK!
Here they are doing the actually fishing. Nick had the camera. So at this point my beautiful children, my hot hubby, and my uber expensive camera are all standing on ice in the middle of the lake. Oh joy.
Here's a picture of Nick's mother and me standing on the dock. At this point I think we were both yelling at them, trying to entice them inside with hot cocoa. Heehee.
They are pretty cute ice fishing though :)
I mean, seriously, look at all that water!!! Freaking out looking at these photos! And they are safe in our living room right now, ha!
They finally came inside and I was okay. I stopped hyperventilating a few
minutes later and realized they had a lot of fun and got to experience something interesting!
