Family Fun Day at Lake Park – Lutz, Florida

Family Fun Day at Lake Park

June 19, 2010

What a wonderful day I had today! Not a Clue Adventures and Good Time Kayaking hosted the Meetup Group “Adventure Parents Ages 5-12”  for a day of fishing and kayaking. We had over 20 persons attend today’s fun in the sun!

Our families started arriving right at 9 am and soon many were in the kayaks taking their first paddle. After a quick lesson from Robin and Josh and the donning of life jackets they were pushed out to have a “hands on” experience. The kids picked up this fun summertime sport quickly and no one tipped over the whole day!

Volunteers Elli and Monty soon had many kids and parents baiting and casting rods into the lake to give a try at fishing. We were so proud of all the kids. Many practiced their casting across the lawn throughout the day. We had 2 fish caught and many young fish were well fed!

Jakes Hamburgers soon arrived with lunch. They donated 35 hotdogs for the group to enjoy with all the fixins!  Afterwards everyone got to enjoy some ice cold watermelon before heading back to the shore for another paddle or more fishing.

The weather started turning on us shortly after but everyone helped pack up and soon were on their way home. It was so much fun working with this group and we are looking forward to a fall campout with them.

Check out this great group of kids and parents at http://www.meetup.com/Adventure-Parents-Ages-5-12/ they will keep you and your kids busy all summer!

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
