Wordful Wednesday - Fishing

While visiting north of Chicago last weekend, one place we visited was Independence Grove Forest Preserve. It is a very large outdoor recreation area centered on a 115-acre lake. Several people were seen hiking and biking along the surrounding prairies.

We neither hiked or biked but we did fish. And by fish, I mean the guys did. Us girls mostly watched and napped (mostly napped).

Independence Grove Forest Preserve is a 'Catch and Release' facility. The guys caught a few blue gill, bass and carp but threw them back in the lake after photo ops.

Jason, being the genius thinker he is, threw together some leaves on his glasses. His theory was that the fish couldn't see him if he was in camo. Take notice of the farmer's tan on his arm!

Me and Becky found a shade tree to nap beneath. We'd drink a couple Strawberritas and watch the guys fish, then take a nap. Then repeat the cycle.

Do you enjoy fishing? (Me: Eh) Do you enjoy napping? (Me: Yeah)

I don't fish, so I would have been napping with you ladies under the tree :)

That looks like a relaxing day. I've only been fishing a few times. I enjoyed it. My husband finds it boring, so we haven't gone. I wish he liked it. I'd like for our boys to go at least once in their childhood!
