An evening at the County Fair, riding the rides and winning prizes playing games:
A day at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens, watching polar bears swim, attending the Wings of Wonder bird show (new photo on my header was taken at that show), and face painting, too:
Also included in the week was a trip to the library for several new books to read and lunch with a friend.
So, today, when we were invited to go fishing with our friends Edie & Bobby, who are like surrogate grandparents to Jonathan, we thought a relaxing evening at a local park's fishing pond would be just the way to end this hectic week.
The weather was perfect for fishing, and my little fisherman caught 29 fish all by himself! I was amazed at the difference a year has made. This year he's learned to bait his own hook:
And get the fish off the hook by himself:
And then release it back into the pond.
It was a very relaxing end to a busy week!
