Cassandra and I went to Mannington last week and dad took us to one of his friend's house where he has a big catfish pond. We fished for a while and caught some nice catfish! It was a lot of fun and I think we are going to try to get back out there before we head to Gander Brook.

Cassandra and mom casting out there for the big ones

Cassandra's line wasn't the best out there and it seemed to tangle up a lot and I was helping her get it untangled. I also broke her pole a few days ago on accident....you get what you pay for...$20 Big Lots

Mom just enjoying the evening...she hadn't had supper yet and she was hungry but the mean boys wouldn't leave to go get her something to eat
This is me fighting a big catfish

And here is that big old catfish....good times!

Here are some pictures of Cassandra, Kole, and I slack lining at the Haugh House Sunday after church. If you don't know what a slack line is, in short, a long piece of webbing tightened between two anchors and you have to walk across it without falling. It's a lot harder than it might sounds. We set up the line in the back yard and Kole thought that he needed to try it once.

This is me on the slack line...

Half way across...don't worry I finished it.

Cassandra takes a try...

And Kole needed a turn.

He's not bad...

And then Cassandra thought this would be a good idea...not really but no one got hurt. Look how hard Kole is holding on to her head. Fun times!
Some one needs to tell Nick that when we come down to Arkansas in June that he'll need to be ready to get on a slack line. Oh yeah, this was also the same Sunday that we started our hike and there will be pictures of that coming soon...
