who needs a fishing pole . . .

when you have your hands?

She's setting her sights on it now . . .
I just downloaded these pics and had to share Sweetie's first experience fishing at the 4th of July park activities in small-town northern Utah. They had a rectangular area divided with hay bales and large tarp over the bales--you can see them in the pic above. They filled the area with water and dumped a bunch of fish in. They let the kids in according to age groups. At the end, the fish were getting tired of swimming away from all of those grasping fingers and were a little slower, so Sweetie went in for the grab. Ahhh, a girl not afraid of a little slip and slime. That's my Sweetie!
