Fishing on the Fourth

 On a beautiful sunny 4th of July, we headed out to Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens in Kaneohe for some fishing.  The girls had been asking to go fishing for quite some time.  Equipped with their rods and reels, bread for the fish, snacks and drinks for themselves, hats, shoes and sunscreen they were ready to catch some fish!

With the help of Knud Lindgard, a writer for Hawaii Fishing News who volunteers at Hoomaluhia and helps kids (and parents) catch fish, we were able to increase our catching from 3 fish in an hour to "too many to count" in the remaining time we were there.  As long as the bread stayed on the hook, it was almost a guaranteed catch.  And the fact that the fish are a terrific "Tangerine Tango" color made it even more fun!  ("Tangerine Tango", one of Stampin' Up!'s new Core Colors!) *smile*

It was a great day for fishin' and a great family day.  I'm sure we'll be heading out to Hoomaluhia again soon.

Thanks for letting me share this day...
