Today is the last day my sweet son is five. Tomorrow he is six and that seems like the true start of the big kid stage. For his birthday he asked if instead of celebrating with a party, to take a family trip to the beach. Lately his biggest passion is fishing. He practices casting in the yard daily and my husband takes him to nearby ponds every week. But his ultimate dream has been to go deep sea fishing. (just thinking about it makes me sea sick!)
Well, lucky for him he didn’t have to twist our arms too much. Our family has a serious case of wanderlust and is willing to embrace any excuse to hit the road. This weekend was jam packed and full of fun and celebrating. Our daughter is at the sweetest age (3) for the ocean – lots of squealing, laughter, and cuddles in the waves.
The fish weren’t biting for him, but I think he enjoyed the experience just the same. He made up for it by consuming plenty of calamari and fried fish at the restaurants :).
Happy Birthday to our fish loving little boy!
