Catch and Release...with a Kiss Goodbye

Autumn is one of the most curious kids I know (except for when it comes to dinner time - ugh!)

This girl wants to do EVERYTHING, especially when it's not a normal little girl thing. I have to admit, I'm kind of excited about I'm not a girly girl, myself. I like to get cute, but I like to look cute in like beach-attire. When I was growing up, I played on two soccer teams at a time, 9 years of softball, I took P.E./weight lifting in summer school in high school, JUST because I wanted something to keep me going during the summer. lol. I know. I'm weird. 

So when it comes to my little girl wanting to get dirty, I'm all for it....most of the time.
Do you remember the movie Fried Green Tomatoes??

My girls are going to be the little girl who can dress them up all you want, but they'll be jumping in the mud lake by the end of the day! lol

Anyway, one of the new things she's all of a sudden interested in is fishing. We have a lake across the street, and the moment she wakes up, she asks to go across the street to go fishing...

So, sometimes we do. She loves it. I don't think there are any fish in there though. But shhhh....don't tell her that! She just likes going out there and doing it.

Well, my husband got tired of the "lack of gratification" of the fish-less lake, so he took her to "the compound" to go fishing. I, of course, stayed home with Brooklynn because heaven forbid when she sees water that she stays OUT of the water...and it's probably not good for when you want to catch

Well, anyway, he sent me a picture of her first catch!!

Then, when he got home, I of course stole his phone so I could see more pictures...

Just look how proud she is!

But THEN, I found this jewel of a it. You will bust out laughing at the end. Kids are the dardnest things!!

P.s....the proverbial "fish tale" has already started, from the moment I asked her, 

"How big was the fish you caught?!"

I'm sure you know the answer!


  1. Hahaha Oh my goodness. She is ADORABLE...and I can't believe she kissed the fish haha :)

  2. That was so cute! You will have to show that to her when she's 16.
