Every year, the day after Christmas, we take the long journey to the great wide open (also known as Papa Tractors). This year was extra special because, this year Papa Tractor took our oldest son ice fishing. He had a special hat made just for him and bought him his very own ice fishing rod. It was special indeed! He reserved a special ice house just for us for the entire day. We hopped in a Bombardier (see the photo)and headed to 5 mile point. It was five miles out in the middle of the lake and it took us nearly a half hour to get there. But was it worth it? Indeed!
We spent nearly 7 hours out there and the only person who caught anything was Papa. But, it didn’t really matter because the day wasn’t totally about catching….it was more about the memory, the special time, the incredible gift of grandparents. It was a successful day for sure!
Have you ever been ice fishing? Do you have any amazing memories with your grandparents you want to share?
