The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Fishing on Mantua Lake

Aunika caught the first fish.
Max did such a good job on the boat!
Kalia caught the biggest fish.
Ewww.. It was too slimey.

We got to take our nieces Kalia and Aunika fishing this weekend and they both caught their first fish. Caleb even caught his first fish! (Bart held the rod and Caleb reeled it in.) He was repulsed by the fish and wouldn't touch it. :) We had a little picnic on the beach afterwards. Caleb wouldn't go out and play in the water until he saw a cute little two year old girl by us and he followed her in. What does that mean?? We mostly caught bluegill and Kalia caught a bass. It was really fun.

Good times! I like the header picture. It makes me ponder the vastness and serenity of nature all at the same time. Who knew one picture could say so much?
