Ice Fishing

We took the kids and went ice fishing this last week at Pelican Lake. We had such a good time. We took the 4 wheeler and our big sled. We put all our stuff and most of us and the dog in the sled and it was so easy to get everything out on the lake. It took us a while to get all six holes drilled in the ice. The ice was almost 2 feet thick. Once we got the holes done and all the kids set up we waited for the fish. We were all getting tugs and nibbles on our lines but Ranger ended up being the only one to actually bring a fish out. Even though he was the only one to catch one everyone had fun. We drank hot chocolate and had goldfish crackers for a snack. When we were done fishing, we loaded everything up and we went for a ride around the lake in the sled. It was a great day!

Pizza Night

For dinner one night we decided to make our own pizza. The kids had lots of fun. They each made their own. It was fun to watch them all do their own different from the others. The were so excited about it. And they were excited to be helping make dinner. Its fun to see that such a simple thing can make them so happy. They can't wait to do it again.
