Mariposa Fishing Trip

We had to squeeze a little more fun in to the month of June... So over the weekend we took a road trip (5 1/2 hours) north to to the mountains of Mariposa, CA (near Yosemite National Park) to visit our friends Jeremiah and Julie. We arrived Friday.

On Saturday Jeremiah, Tim, and Toby took off on a fishing expedition - Toby's first time fishing. He had a great time and they came home with an amazing catch of six (none of them whoppers...but Toby didn't seem to mind!) fish.


The fishermen.

On Sunday morning we enjoyed some time playing in the Merced River



Asher did some of his own fishing, catching lots of imaginary fish.



That evening we were good and hungry for a hot-dog roast and s'mores!

YUM! Julie provided the delicious food. Toby and Asher were especially grateful for the marshmallows, much of which ended up on their faces!

Toby, who would LOVE to have a pet of his own, became very attached to Ebony...who for a secret reason all his own, he renamed Gwydeon. We have no idea where that name came from, but it was cute and made us smile every time.

We love it when our friends live in places that are fun to visit! (By the way, Jeremiah and Julie are expecting their first baby in August - YEAH!)

Yeah! Blog posts from Susie!!

Looks like you guys had a great time. How did the boys handle the 5 1/2 hour drives? Liam told me that Peter has to take him fishing now too.

What a fun trip Susanna! Man, you've been a travelin fool this summer!

The best is Toby's face with that fish on the line. He's excited, and grossed out, and not sure how to react. I love those boys!

Love all the pictures. Looks like you guys had a blast! Miss you all. By, the way, I loved how you put the pictures from the last 3 years up for the 4th of July. They are growing up way too fast.
