Gone Fishing.

Teigen *loves* to fish! Teigen is barely 6 years old but would spend all day ice fishing or casting his pole out into a mud puddle if he suspected fish could inhabit it.  He spent all Tuesday, pestering anyone who would listen to him about when we would get to go fishing.  We tried to get to the fishing hole that night but we ended up working sheep until it was dark.  Mark was suppose to head over to the east side of the state to do some work on Wednesday but was feeling bad that we didn’t make it fishing.   So instead of leaving for work Wednesday evening, he stopped and picked up a picnic supper and called and told us to meet him at the fishing spot.  We spent the evening eating, laughing and untangling knots until dark.

We had such a great evening!  Mark ended up leaving at 4 am to make it to where he was headed and is a bit tired tonight but says it was definitely worth it.
