The tackle box and fishing pole were his favorite presents. We added several random things to the tackle box...a carabeaner, a box of bandaids, a magnifying glass, stickers, a pulley, and rope...because one time, my parents gave my brother a box of random stuff for his birthday, and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Aparently it is!
Happy about the yarn, and then kind of fake sad!
We went out in the boat for the rest of the day. We tried for awhile to catch some salmon for bait, but they really aren't in yet, so we went out and set the crab pots. After that, we tried fishing for halibut. Brooklin got a pacific cod, but as soon as she got it up out of the water, it flipped off the hook and back to the ocean it went. The only other fish we caught were two double uglies. We decided to be done fishing after several hours... and three bored kids... We went to check the crab pots on the way in. There were two dungeness crab in the first pot (one keeper) and three in the second pot (one keeper). That really wasn't enough for us to keep, so we gave them to a friend of ours who was out pulling his pots. He had a bunch of company, and was grateful we shared.
I think I will copy their birthday lists into the next post...they really were funny!
