BUT this year, four days after Memorial Day: and the fish were biting at noon! Hmmm...
Fritz, being Fritz, was all about getting the proper gear - in this case a children's fishing rod. Alas, it doesn't work very well, Fritz tells me. (Although it DID catch two little fish!) He's already talking about giving Noah his old (good) fishing rod and buying a new one for himself.
Noah, being Noah, designed his own impromptu fishing rod while Fritz was fiddling with the (bad) children's fishing rod.
Mattias played with the worms. Oh, did he play with worms. You know, worms are something of a specialty in dry, sunny Colorado. This really brought me back to my own childhood and playing with worms after the rain. I don't know what the equivalent for high-prarie Colorado kids is.
