Son's first time fishing
<p>Mother&#39;s Day weekend I had the opportunity to do one of those big life events I wont ever forget... getting to take my son fishing for the first time.&nbsp; I am sure all of you dad&#39;s out there can relate to how exciting it is to watch your mini version doing what you love and carrying on that tradition.</p> <p>I apologize for having to request you visit&nbsp;my blog if you want to read about it or see photos...&nbsp; I am havng terrible time getting photos to post on this site since the new changes.&nbsp; Likely human error... also caught a decent drum that I will be trying to post once I figure out what I&#39;m doing wrong.</p>

Right on! One of the pivotal

Right on!

One of the pivotal events in a kid's (and a parent's) life. The cool thing is that it stays wesome for a long time. The first time they walk is exciting, but not that long after that they're just a person who can walk. But the magic of fishing with your kid(s) keeps on being magical at least until they approach the teen years, and even if it fails for a while the seeds are planted and will probably re-grow once they get past those years.

Nice work!   I can't remember

Nice work!


I can't remember where it is but there are directions on the site somewhere for posting pics.  It isn't that hard but it is a good bit different than the old method.  Hopefully someone will link the directions, I can't remember where they are.

posting images

Nice job with the little one, Coolwater!  To embed an image in a post, just click on the "image" icon in the editor window.  It is in the top row of icons 4 to the left of the smileyface.  Then, paste the url of your photo there and it will show up.

Thanks everyone

I hope I have a long lifetime of fishing memories to make with him!  (and the daughter too, in time!)

Thanks Andy... will test it.  Also want to say I love your new avatar.  (might not be so new now, but new to me seeing it!)

Photo test

Okay, so apparently it was just IE, should have known.  Did the same thing in Firefox and worked with ease.  Photo below is a few nights ago where he didn't want to use the Spiderman pole, he wanted the "big boy" rod.
