Last month JDubbs and I took the kids out to the local ice fishing derby in the middle of a snow squall because 1) I had to write about it for the local newspaper, but more importantly 2) it was so Vermonty it just had to be done. So three kids in snowsuits, two grown-ups and one camera made the trip to the middle of a lake to find out what this whole ice fishing thing is all about.
We had taken Jax and Em before, but that was when Em was still traveling in the Baby Bjorn, so obviously neither of them remembered it. It was so snowy it was impossible to tell where the land ended and the ice began. It was all just one huge blanket of snow covering everything as far as we could see. Talk about an adventure!
The littlest couldn’t even walk on the ice–even though it was covered in snow, it still felt like we needed ice skates! But with Daddy there to hold her hand, she was having the time of her life.
We weren’t there terribly long, but with the addition of hot chocolate and hot dogs cooked right there on the ice, the kids were happy to head home and talk about what a cool morning they’d had. It pays to get out there and explore our world now and then, no matter the weather!
Keep the family adventures coming!
