lakeside picnic

If you haven’t enjoyed a family picnic by a quiet lake lately, come join ours.


You might have to fight me for a lap baby,

but you’re welcome to grab a rod and reel to see what you can pull from the lake.


Here’s how it’s done—a father/son teaching session.


Can you be too young to learn how to fish? John and Sage don’t think so.


She did a good job of catching herself, I’d say.

Timing is rather important for the perfect fish shot. Ooops. Missed it! You’ll just have to watch the video to see what Pete hauled out of Lake Tilikum.

It was a moment to behold. [I tried to figure out YouTube’s editing options and gave up. The first 18 seconds tell the story, but if you make it all the way to 1:24, you’ll be rewarded by hearing Pete thank the fish “for so much fun” as he released it.]

Maybe not the biggest catch of the day, but still notable!

Meanwhile, the dogs (not fish) are nearly ready. Grab a bun; there’re enough to go around.

One of the goats jumped the fence so needed some guidance back to the barn.


A bit of cousin bonding.


John took these. It’s so nice to have professional photographers in the family.


And a stop-off along the way for some mama/auntie hugs.


The “old folks” sit back and drink it all in.

One final cast for the Macy men before calling it a day.

Now wasn’t that fun? You’ll have to join us again for our next family adventure! (The family grows by five tomorrow!)
