Soaking in the last warm days

It seemed like last Sunday would be our last really warm feeling day for the season. With cold days in the forecast we tried to make the most of the beautiful day by taking our canoe out to Pactola Reservoir in the afternoon for a paddle, some beach time and a bit of fishing --

To our surprise Luke caught a BIG rainbow trout! 17 inches!! Go bud go! We brought it home and had it for dinner that night. (Whew! Jason & I are very out of practice at fish cleaning. I don't think we've cleaned one since fishing in Palau!)

And it was a beautiful afternoon, so glad we went.

Earlier in the week, I had the chance to get the kids back up to Little Elk Creek with water shoes on and had a blast playing and wading in the cold, clear water.

Paddling back at sunset - couldn't ask for a prettier afternoon on the lake.

Our earlier trip wading at Little Elk Creek, the water was brisk!
