Today is His Birthday

Sitting by the dock of the bay
 Well that quite interlude lasted for about two seconds and then they were up synchro jumping on the docks.
 This guy joined the double-digit club today. We always let the boys be the boss of the house on their birthdays. E asked that we go hunting for frogs (check), go out on the boat (check), eat dinner at IKEA (check), have a friend sleepover (check) and have homemade apple pie (cooling on stove presently).
I don't think he had his rod in the water for 2 minutes when he reeled in his first fish.
But see that second picture? The broken rod? That was from fish #2.
Meet fish #2. When E started to reel it in his rod snapped in half!
When the fish reached the surface we could see why.
E .... you are 10 years old .... and you are a fisherman.
I noticed on the way back to land that A and Granny were making plans for his day coming up.
I don't know if I like the looks of those smiles.

Hope they are there for tomorrow (monday), Guess I will have to mail them earlier and send a special thanks to Canada Post. Looks like the DD day was a great success...really old now partner and yes, a certified fisherman. Loads of love Grampy Peter
