My dad always goes fishing every year down in Ga and this year for spring break the boys were finally old enough for him to handle on the big lake fishing all day. They caught their first bass this time. He taught them new casting techniques and had them trying to tie knots..the were in boy training. They haven't mastered holding the big fish they caught in the mouth without the gloves because they are afraid their hands will be scraped to pieces by micro fish teeth like Pap's :D..
It was beautiful weather in the 80's and 90's and the bugs were bigger and the people are slower and everything there is laid back. It's like going back in time. I felt like I was on an episode of Andy Griffith when all the people at the local grocer (which is 30 min away) asked me at the check out what I was going to do with castor oil and grape seed oil together. Hmmm good thing I said wash my face and not that I'm constipated ha ha ha :D Not joking, 3 of them, including an 80 year old man behind me in line, asked how to wash your face with that. The old man said "Does it make you glow?"..yep..spreading the oil cleansing method all the way to Elberton, Ga !!
The boys caught 14 fish one day and about 10-12 another day. They cleaned (well sort of..dad cleaned) some their fish and we fixed them for supper. My mom makes her own fish batter..you can just did them in egg and organic corn meal and fry them in olive oil..they are great with garlic seasoning and placed on the George Foreman grill too..we soaked them in milk so they wouldn't taste fishy.
The boys had a great week and missed their daddy because it was tax season and he had to stay home. BOOOO!! We are over tax season. It was fun just being outside, cooking in the cabin, and being with their pap and grams for a week :D
Here are some photos from our trip!
