Day 244

The fishing was good today. Sam and the kids headed to the lake as soon as breakfast was over and I stayed behind to straighten up and watch the fire die down. And by the time I made it to the lake they were reeling in the first fish. Kaitlyn talked Sam into letting that one go, saying it probably "missed it's family", though it was small so he was going to let it go anyway. It wasn't long afterward that he had hooked a decent sized one and Kaitlyn got to help reel it in. Ty was predictably scared of it, but Kaitlyn loved holding it and petting it. The fishing slowed down a bit after that and despite a few really good bites, we didn't land any more. But we all considered it a huge success and everyone was happy.
We went back to the campground and made rootbeer and had lunch, then spent the rest of the day alternating between spending time at the lake and hanging out at the campsite. The kids weren't exactly on their best behavior at all times but overall it was a good day out camping.
