Olivia's first catch!

Who says city folk don't know where their food comes from? We ate trout for lunch that Olivia caught live!

Ok, it wasn't the picture of county-life. The Kawanas (sp?) filled the Santa Clara city fountains with trout and helped the kids catch them with fishing poles and everything!

Olivia did great. She caught her first fish within minutes of her first turn. She wasn't as fruitful on her second turn, but she had great fun. She was a little scared at first because mommy wasn't allowed to come in with her, but she met a new friend that helped immensely. Another cutie little 4-year-old girl held her hand in line. Very sweet.

Unfortunately I forgot the camera for the experience, but here is her holding her (bagged) fish once we got home.

Daddy even cleaned it and cooked it for lunch. I must say, it was pretty good. It's probably the closest we'll get to fresh fish for a long time.

    Beautiful pictures. I wonder what camera you have taken all those photos with. Best wishes. Jerry.

    WTG Olivia.
    Now if Lindsey had caught that fish she would have cried if we tried to cook it and eat it. LOL.

    Thanks guys. I was very surprised Olivia wasn't freaked out by eating the real, live fish she caught!

    Jerry, we have a 5 year old Cannon PowerShot. lol Nothing special! In fact, I'd love something new, but not in the budget any time soon, unfortunately.
