Dan took the kids fishing last weekend before he went to Houston for 2 weeks. While they were out Ethan actually caught a fish on his Spiderman fishing pole! The fish wasn't huge, but it was large enough that his little pole couldn't reel it in! So, Dan had to pull it in by the line. He was fairly timid about holding it, so there were NO pictures of him at the lake holding it because he was to scared of it moving. The best part was when Dan went to gut the fish Ethan was devastated.
Ethan: "Daddy NO! My fishy!" while getting a little upset.
Dan:"Ethan it's okay buddy I have to do this so that we can eat it for dinner."
Ethan:"No fishy, No fishy...MINE daddy MINE." the tears beginning to fall.
Dan:"It's okay Ethan why don't you come and help me."
Ethan (tears flowing): "No, no, no daddy my fishy. Please my fishy."
Dan got it all cleaned up and put the kids in the car and Ethan fell asleep on the way home. When he woke up, Dan was gone a he started to sob while saying words that I did not understand. He wanted his fishy. So, me being kind of nice pulled it out of the freezer to show him that we still had it. He wanted to hold it and so I took a few pictures of his happy face. He was VERY proud of himself.
We survived Halloween!!.....Barely!!
