Heeeeeeere Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!

A few weeks ago, we took the Sprouts to Montebello fish hatchery. There, they raise over 60,000 pounds of brook, rainbow and brown trout a year, which are released in Virginia state streams. The kids loved seeing all the fishies, and were even able to feed them, which caused quite a feeding frenzy with lots of splashing, much to the kids' delight!

Here's a couple shots of Isaiah (who is shirtless, due to a carsickness incident on the way there), checking out the raceways.

And last week, we let the kids try their hand at actually catching some fish. We went to Ashland Pond, which is a family-owned fee fishing pond. Abbie turned out to be quite the angler, as she was reeling them in left and right. Isaiah caught a couple as well with Daddy's help, although he seemed to enjoy playing with the worms more than fishing.

And just for fun, because the kids love it...
