Ice Fishing

Saturday after swimming lessons, the girls and I decided to bundle up in our most extreme winter gear and head out to the frozen lake to see what Uncle T was catching. Since he was fishing relatively close to where we live, we decided to pay him a visit. The girls knew to bundle up but I had to laugh when Mae told me all she was wearing. She had on a pair of long underwear (top and bottom) plus a t-shirt and jeans over that with a sweatshirt, snow pants, neck warmer, hat, winter coat, boots and mittens. Binny and I were also wearing some mighty winter wear but Mae was the most unrecognizable once she suited up.We only stayed about 20 minutes. Just long enough to slide on the ice and snap a few photos.

Too cold for us to stay and do any actual fishing but hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will be able to do some late season (meaning warmer!) ice fishing like we did last year...

I need a blanket and some hot cocoa. That is too cold for me.

I'm glad I'm inside in the warm looking at these photos!

So Sweet! How far out does your brother go? I mean, do you need to go far out to catch fish when it's this cold?

Brrrrr!!! I think Oregon is the only place with mild weather right now. I've been running around with a sweat jacket.
