Allan’s been wanting to go ice fishing this winter and finally got a chance to go with his brother, Kevin. They decided to each bring one of their kids and Saturday morning they were off bright and early.
I didn’t hear from Allan all day, obviously, but when he got home he told me a little bit about the trip. Payson was freaking out in the beginning wanting to go home because he was freezing cold. Allan had to kinda turn it all into a challenge to get Payson to calm down. I guess eventually Payson did stop having a meltdown and was mellow the rest of the trip but never happy to be there. haha. Poor Payson! He just doesn’t like being cold!
Ember was really happy for Allan to have caught so many. Her reaction surprised me because she’s such an animal lover I was worried she’d be upset by seeing the dead fish but she wasn’t. She said she was sad for them but she was happy that dad had caught so many for our dinners. It was a really mature thought process! I don’t know why her maturity would surprise me though, she’s always been exceptionally mature for her age.
