Most of being a parent, as far as I am concerned, is creating memories and since they do last a lifetime I make that my primary goal. We went a little out of the City to the 7 Lakes Drive, they are in Harriman, New York and we go there all the time. The drive is easy once you get out of Manhattan and the scenery is nice on the Palisades. We were relaxing in the hammocks when we noticed some worms in the leaves. Well ten minutes later we had a couple dozen worms and it was time to go fishing.
I take the little guy fishing and it is the cutest frickin' thing ever. He cant cast, he gets flustered and he catches these little sunfish that mean the world to him.
We HAVE to bring them home so he can eat them, he insists and he eats them with wasabi and ketchup. He brought home like 20 or so. He caught more but they wriggled out of his hands when he took them off the hook.
Disclaimer: These fish dont get that big to begin with so its not like we are taking from the baby pool and they are usually preyed upon by the walleye, and they are abundant.
