Gone fishing with Joshua

Last weekend I took my Grandson Joshua out to the San Joaquin River fishing. Whenever I take kids fishing I try to find ponds or slower parts of the river. That way if the little rascals fall in I can jump in and pull them out again without having the current whisk them away. If you put kids next to water I guarantee that it won't be long before they fall in. It's OK, because they dry out pretty quickly.
