Like Father...Like Son



My husband comes for an outdoors family. He loves to hunt and fish. I can tell you that Elijah is proof that those types of interests can be passed down through the generations through the genes. Eli just loves to fish. He is only 3 years old, but can sit for over 4 hours on a fishing boat with his father and love every minute of it. He can cast out over 20 feet and reel in his fish. It really is just amazing to me. This past Saturday I was participating in a blog babyshower, so Tim took Eli out fishing. I just had to sneak out my front door to take these photos of the two of them.

Love it. I have a little outdoorsman too. He has always been able to sit for hours in the woods or just fishing. Love the pictures. Have a great week.

Those pictures are wonderful! How great that Tim can share his favorite pastimes with Eli at such a young age. (I think he and Lily would get along really well...they both seem to have really long attention spans)...Lucky us!

Enjoy your week, my friend.

Those are great photos. How very true that these genes are passed down from generations. Tom, Aiden and my Father-in-Law can fish for hours and still never get enough of it.

Happy Monday to you!

my honey is a gym rat and doesn't like the outdoors, but he is trying to get out of his shell for the our boys ... the lake looks so peaceful

That is so sweet that Eli and his dad had made such lovely memories together... actually my dad had taught me how to fish and to know when the fish are biting etc (remembering he died when I was 9) so I had started early when it came to fishing... well, all my family were dragged out fishing... great memories though...

Eli is a natural. It must make Tim's heart swell with pride.
The pictures are precious and the memories, priceless.....
