Anyhow, after shopping the girls and I decided to brave the cold and visit Uncle Stu and Uncle Nommy out ice fishing on the lake.
The girls were so excited to witness ice fishing again but when we arrived the guys already had everything set up, so there really wasn't anything to do and no fish were biting the whole time we were there. The guys did catch one fish (a brown trout, if you must know) earlier, so my younger brother hauled the half frozen fish out of the ice shanty and brought it over for the girls to see.
They were quite impressed with the fish but Binny took an extra step back and asked her Uncle if the fish would bite her. She was happy to see it go back in the bag and I was kind of relieved that they didn't catch one when we were there. She isn't scared of our 137 pound Saint Bernard, but small animals freak her out. We stayed for a little while until our fingers started to lose their feeling and Binny had an icicle forming at the end of her drippy nose.
We arrived home and discovered a package in today's mail from Hair of the blog sponsor A Reservation For Six. Rachel must have felt bad for my poor showing in the hair growing contest that she sent a pair of very festive St. Patty's Day socks that will also keep my legs warm.
Too fun! Thanks Rachel!! I wonder what Shady Lady received for a consolation prize? Remember she was the one with the very hairy pits...
