Ice Fishing

Brrrrr.... What some people won't do for fun! Saturday Aaron went ice fishing with the guys (Scott, Bill and Clint). After they did all the hard work of making the holes and setting up the poles I and Porter came down to fish er.... watch. Porter loved every minute of it even though the wind made it soooo cold! He was quite upset when we had to go and has told me several times since that he wants to go fishing in the snow.

Fish Caught: 6
Fish Tossed Back: 2
Poles Stolen by Fish: 1
Fish Now in my freezer (Yucko): 3

Thanksgiving Shoot Out

Aaron and his family have a tradition that every year rain, snow or shine that they shoot clay pigeons in the back pasture on Thanksgiving. Porter being quite the gun enthusiast himself was happy to join in the fun. I was amazed at how well he managed to keep he earmuffs on. For the most part he watched from the back of the truck but he did get to shoot a couple of times with Dad and Uncle Scott's help as well as getting to pull the string that throws the pigeons.

I love the look on his face in this picture he was totally enthralled watching the big boys. For those of you who aren't so big on guns don't worry the gun he is holding was not loaded and I and or Aaron was standing right with him the whole time he held it.

Porter's first shot. Poor Aaron ended up with a bruise on his leg from the kick.

All the boys in their shooting duds- ready to go
