A little more fishing, digging, and swimming

We went fishing again on Saturday, this time at Three Mile Bend. Sam caught a small perch or walleye, or maybe it was something else, but the fish wriggled its way off the line before I had a chance to take a picture. After a while, the boys were tired of fishing, so we headed up the hill to eat our lunch while Otto fished a bit more.

After eating, Andy and Sam wanted to do some digging with their shovels.

When that got old (didn't take long), we headed back down to the pond to see about casting a few more times. Still no fish, and the water was looking reeeeeeeeeal good on a hot summer day. I had thought about bringing their swimsuits, but didn't. So the boys stripped to their skivvies and hopped in!

It was a little chilly at first, but it didn't take long to get used to the water.

That evening we cleaned up and tried a local Indian restaurant called Astha. The boys decided to play a game of Chutes and Ladders before we headed out.

Wait - something exciting happening on the Olympics!

The Indian food was very tasty. The shrimp curry that I had tasted a lot like shrimp creole, but with curry added. Yummy sauce - and yummy naan to dip in the sauce, too.

On Sunday afternoon we waded in Red Deer River for a while. (I have no pictures because I didn't want to chance leaving my camera unattended at the river bank with our towels, nor did I want to get it wet.) There were many, many people launching rafts and tubes to take a nice, slow ride down the river. Looked fun - maybe next time. :o)
