We've been busy around here. Last week was the first week of school. Angela did fine, I didn't do fine with Angela's school. Axel didn't do so fine, so I went to school for the entire day with him on Thursday. I hear Friday was much better, but he only had to be there until noon because Papa, his most favorite person in the whole world, picked him up and took him fishing for the weekend, 4 hours away Up North. (that is capitalized because "Up North" is a special place for those of us in Minnesota!)
Axel caught several fish!
Got his baseball hat. Got his fish'in pole!
Got his life jacket!
Got his Papa!
Ok, well NOT super thrilled about walking on this dock thingy.
See Dean's grin? I think just breathing in the air Up North makes him high or something.
Oh Axel, you got one! REEL Buddy, REEL!!! (check out his tongue sticking out. LOL)
Axel's FIRST FISH!!!!!! YEA AXEL!!!!!
This things kinda gross really. (Notice he's now wearing rubber gloves? LOL)
Each one got a little bigger....
Going fast is FUN!!! We'll turn him into an adrenaline junkie like Angela in no time!
Breathing in the Up North air makes a boy tired. Nothing like a nap in the boat while being gently rocked. I always feel the same way. LOL
Axel's BIG fish! Papa was so proud.
Ok, it's not THAT great. Get that thing away from me.
Of course, Dean says I need to post a picture of HIS fish too! 24 lb Northern. HUGE!!!! Later Axel caught a 10 lb fish but it flipped out of the net.
Wait, let's look at that picture again, shall we? Click on it to make it bigger, and take a look at Axel's face!
Axel came home filthy, with a dirty face and smelling of fish, just like a boy should! I'll leave you with this adorable smile...
