The other day I was asking Adam to list things that he was really passionate about. Adam is really easy going and likes just about anything, but I wanted to know those things that make him super excited about living.
As I was naming different things off, I didn't see his face light up or his eyes sparkle. When I said fishing though, it was money. I got just the expression that I thought I would.
I myself am not a fisher-woman. I think I would rather be doing nothing than fishing, that is more relaxing to me. Fishing with Adam does make it a bit more enjoyable, but I still can only handle small doses. Now, fishing in Virginia Beach off of a dock? That I could do all day, day after day. Cozy chairs to sit on, beautiful waterfront homes to gaze at, and boats zooming and lazily sailing by.
I felt very passionate about the entire weekend! Fishing on the dock and watching my giddy husband and little Caroline reel in the fish. Boating, sleeping in a cozy little cottage, biking, and running along the sandy shores of the water with our giggly girls....I am lit up by all of that.
I think Adam has found two new thrilled fishing buddies. Caroline caught about 5 fish and both girls used tiny 3-foot poles in shades of pink and green. I had never seen such a tiny little pole.
Several types of fish were caught including a couple of Sheepshead (they have crazy teeth!), Sea Trout, and Spotfish. Caroline was the first to reel in a fish (her first fish ever!) and I think she has the love her dad has for baiting a hook.
The Chief Mate and Second Mate luckily found some time to sit back and relax and enjoy the ride as the boat sped along. Caroline kept shouting as loud as her little voice could, "BEST. DAY. EVER.!!" A special thanks to the Lambournes for making the weekend such a huge success.
By the look on that daddy's face I'd say that he is pretty passionate about being with his girls. The way he teaches them and plays with them is incredible to watch. They are two very lucky little ladies.
We left Virginia Beach refreshed and rejuvenated for tackling more late night classes for Adam, late nights without daddy for the girls and me, getting ready for family pictures, and all of the many other activities of real life.
I think I might be a converted Virginia Beach fisher-woman now!
