Father's Day at The Lakehouse

We invited Brent's family to the Lakehouse for Father's Day. They came a bit early so they could enjoy some time on the dock fishing.

Here are the men out helping the kids (Brent's nephew and niece) or throwing in their own lines, while Brent's mom, sister and I spent time on the deck watching them.
Wade is great about always baiting the hook for the kids.
Showing Jericha how to cast.
Wade caught himself a Northern Pike that was a pretty good size! He kept it swimming around in the basket for a while, but then let the fish go. That was the first fish caught at the Lakehouse, so I'd say he had a pretty good Father's Day!
Jericha quickly became an expert at casting.
Jeremiah -learning the art of just sitting there, waiting.
And finally, here you see that Jericha wasn't able to catch any fish, just seaweed. In fact, you can see by the corner post that she was growing a little pile of all the seaweed she kept catching! :)
After a good fishing experience, we enjoyed our grilled brats/dogs and a wide assortment of other goodies. I'd say it was a good Father's Day for those involved, and fun to be with family!

I want to be sure to say thanks to my dad for being such an amazing example of what a great husband and father should be. They often say that women marry someone like their dad, and while I didn't go searching that out, it's amazing to see all the great similarities that Brent shares with my dad! ~~ Also, a quick thank you to Randy. Thanks for raising such a wonderful man of God -who turned into exactly the man I needed to marry someday!
