My Papa!

I got to spend a great weekend with Grannie and Papa Winscot. I had a wonderful time visiting with them and just spending time with them. I really do love my special time with Papa. He knows so much and it is just the best to talk with him and learn from him. I got to spend some time with him out on Rigby Lake. He showed me all about ice fishing and we even took a ride down the hill on some real deal sleds...cardboard! I had a great afternoon with my best friend!

There we already a few holes out in the ice. Papa said some people must have gone out the day before so we used there holes. Here is a close up of the hole...I am a little sad you cant see through the water with the camera because I could look in and see the bottom of the lake and see the fish swimming pass. This is my favorite picture of papa. I feel it kinda captures him doing what he does! Notice the fish by his foot that he just caught...Go Papa!Grandpa was unhooking the fish he caught to through it back in.
Even though there were already holes made Papa still showed me how the ice ogger was really cool watching him do it and seeing him go deeper and all the ice shavings coming up!
Sledding Time:
Papa was so cute I took a couple runs down the hill while he fished a little longer and when we were heading out he turned to me and said he thought he would take a turn doing down and so he did. By the end he was going down backwards laying down holding on the the cardboard for dear life. Not many people can say that there grandpa still goes out sledding!
I sure do love my Papa and cant wait till the next time I get to spend some time with him!

  1. I love these Carlee! I have so many great memories of my dad putting all 5 of us on a toboggan and sending us down a big hill! Also of many camping trips :o) my first fish was one he caught and put on my line.
