Gaston's

On Reese's birthday we drove a few hours to meet my parents at Gaston's, a fishing resort on the White River. Jason had never been fishing there before so I was excited for him. I love it there. My dad and I fished Friday morning, and then Jason and I went Saturday morning while my dad took a fly fishing class. Thanks for watching the boys, Mom!
Our guide Ron was great. He's been a guide for 32 years!
The limit was 5 trout each, so we threw lots of smaller ones back.
Zach loved fishing in the pond. He was so cute reeling in the fish. He tried to get me to hold a worm we used as bait. He kept saying, "It's ok, Mom. It's ok!" No thank you!


Sweet Colson was a mess while we were there so we came home early. He has four or five teeth coming in.

Everyone ate trout Friday night at the restaurant except me. I don't like to eat fish. I did try a bite just because we caught it. ; )
We saw several boats with little boys and their dads or grandpas, and it made me think of Zach and Colson. It makes me excited about future trips!
It's was great to get away for a few days, and it's good to be home. School starts in two weeks!

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation He will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Okay, this post makes me feel better about fishing. My dad is ALWAYS fishing and my husband loves fly fishing. Maybe someday I may attempt to go with them. It just seems like it would be so hot and a lot of waiting. Plus, I wouldn't want to eat what I caught either, but I really do love fish/Red Lobster:)) -I don't get it. Anyway, I'm glad you got away:) I find it is good for me to get back to God's Country:)

Funny how you like to fish, but you don't eat fish! I don't eat any seafood, but couldn't imagine to go fishing either! Looks like you had a fun day though!

What neat memories! Jason's eyes in the one picture are so funky! I just had a huge laugh! Hope Colson is feeling better.

What a great way to spend time together as a family! I bet both of your boys will be over the moon in a couple of years when they can go with you!

looks like yall had fun! Drew's dad took us to Gaston's a few years ago. I didn't fish (I had Brayden with us), but the boys had fun!

Jill said...

Something about Dads and fishing just goes together like cookies and milk! Glad you had a good time...sorry to hear Colson was out of sorts. Poor baby!

Alex and Jill said...

Love all of the pictures.

Alex can't wait for the day that Amelia can go fishing with him. It's his favorite thing in the world. He loves going to the Little Red. He actually found her a pink fly fishing pole while on vacation! HA!

Mandy said...

Nice rainbows! We have the oldest fish hatchery in the US in our town and we raise Rainbow Trout. Aaron I took a trip there this morning to feed the fish and ride his scooter.

Diane said...

Katie, I had to say hi when I noticed Rebekah was one of your college roommates! We got to church with Doug and her, and they live close by. Such a small world we live in! Your family is just precious!

Tiff said...

I love your dress in the restaurant picture! And T is just like C, he gets 4 or 5 or 6 all at the same time! It's too much!

Kelly said...

I had my rehearsal dinner at Gaston's. You were minutes from my parents!!!

I have really enjoyed reading your blog. My daughter Ava was born a little before Colson and it's been fun watching them hit the same milestones. Your story reminded me of a family vacation to the outer banks several years ago. I didn't catch a single fish, but everyone else did. My brother then fried them and they were delicious! Thanks for you words of encouragement.
