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.
