Caroline's first fishing trip



Spence's email to Nana: Our canoe trip yesterday was really great. She loved it and behaved well. We stopped at several gravel bars so she could play and throw rocks. She also likes to play in the sand and rub mud on her arms and legs. She calls it “sunscreen.” We had a tea party, too. With rocks I made a tiny table, plates, tea cups, and a tea pot. We used little mussel shells as bowls for our imaginary yogurt and sticks for spoons. I jokingly warned her that if she smeared her yogurt on herself, I’d take it away. She smiled. We had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, chips, cheese sticks, and lemonade. Then later we got a treat, Little Debbie oatmeal pies. She told Mama Norma that we had pie for our treat. I’m excited about going with her again. I was concerned that she’d fuss about wearing her life jacket, but she didn’t object at all. And she never got bored or whiny. I think we could go for an entire day and she’d do fine. I’ll bet she’d even nap in the boat. I’ll try that soon.














Spence didn't mention that they caught a mess of fish, which he fried up for dinner.
