One of Mom’s favorite things—besides reading, is fishing. She doesn’t get to go a lot. It’s possible to go fishing by yourself, but it’s not the same! So she has to wait till one of her friends have extra time before she can go. Caleb was in her backpack the entire time (he was the wallet protector), so even these photos have something to do with me and my friends! (Not that you guys seem to mind my Wisconsin related posts!)
We live near the Fox River. It was the dumping ground for papermaking plants a long time ago, so the fish aren’t safe to eat. It doesn’t bother Mom and her friends because they don’t want to kill the fish!
They mostly fish off parks and the like. This is Peabody Park. The white stuff on the ground is cottonwood seeds. Cottonwood trees are rather hardy and enjoy wet soil, so they like to live near rivers.
This was one of the larger fish Mom and her friend caught. It was a rock bass.
Mom’s favorite part by far was the mallard duck families! There were a couple of them. This mom duck had probably eight or nine babies!
This mom duck had fewer babies, but they were older. They also got a lot closer!
Until next time!
