Amelia's Big Fishing Trip!

We went fishing today in the Kankakee fish and wildlife area. We found a nice little spot that is a overflow for the yellor river. Amelia caught a big bluegill, a bullhead catfish and a few small bluegills, she had a blast. She would scream "got bite dada" she was even reeling the fish in on her shrek fishing pole by herself.

Pre-trip motovational talk by momie...I think she was just excited to be rid of us for a while.

The big one that did not get away!

Amelia's first catfish, I could not get her to hold this one for the picture.

We caught a few more like this and it started to get to hot and muggy so we called it a day. Maybe we can go out again this evening or tommorow. We'll keep you posted.

Steam Engine!!!

She was so excited and insisted on holding her own ticket the whole time!

Getting ready to take off!

Confused because we told her the kicked us off because she wouldn't sit still!

They could actually blow smoke rings but I could not get a good picture of them.

It started to rain at the end!

At the restaurant they had a caboose all decked out and she loved it! It was like a little playhouse!

The Machlitt's hanging out in the caboose!

Doing a happy dance!

Video of steam train! Really loud!
