A Weekend on the River: Part 1

This weekend was spent about an hour north of here, in a cabin on the Little Red River. My in-laws all came to town to celebrate my father in law’s 60th birthday and spend a long weekend fishing and hanging out together. Keeping 5 small kiddos from falling in the river proved to be the task of the weekend, but everyone came out unscathed and the kids had a blast fishing for fishies! If you’ve never heard of it, the Little Red is actually very well known, made famous for its amazing trout fishing and clean water. The river is beautiful, and Adam used to fish it several times a week in college. We have some fun memories out that way, so it’s always fun to head back!

This post is just going to be a quicky iPhone recap, and I’ll be back with my real pics and a 15 week bump update probably tomorrow!

    I’ll cook them and eat them but I don’t want to catch and clean them.

    Wow, that looks so gorgeous and peaceful. I would love to live near a river to be able to swim and fish and relax during the summers! ๐Ÿ™‚
