Ice fishing

It's that time of year again! Time for our annual Ice Fishing expedition. This year we went with Chris and Lauren and some friends. Let me just say, this January has been divine!!! The weather has been perfect. So on this gorgeous day we all bundled up in our winter gear, only to realize we were way too bundled! I'll take this kind of January any day!!! So Ben brought his trusty quad and we pulled the kids around on the calf sled all day. These kids had a blast. Most of them stayed dry and had fun...although someone fell in the water three times...and that someone was Cait. Now I'll explain, these little ice fishing holes are small...so her full body wouldn't fit...but a leg certainly fit perfectly. Who would have planned on three outfit changes and had a use for each of them? Us of course! Cait's sort of our clumsy little trouble maker. She's never been great at standing up straight, or running without falling, or walking without running into stuff. So not all that surprising! It was a great day and I'd love to do it again!

What fun. Good thing Cait didn't lose a boot down the ice fishing hole. Imagine the fun the fish would have had with it.
