A Perfect Yes Day at Burke Lake

So what should we do with G today? We could go fishing, geocaching, ride a train, ride a carousel, hit the playground or get ice cream?

Yes. Yes to it all.

And to Burke Lake's credit, we were able to do just that.

Burke Lake was perfect because we could scale all these activities so they were sized for G. The geocache we found was an easy grab with a fun toy inside. The train, carousel and ice cream were a natural win for everyone.

Fishing could easily require a bit too much patience for any little kid. Fortunately, we had my Dad with us. We picked a random spot along the shoreline and in four casts he caught four fish. Sure, they were tiny, but for what we were after they were perfect.

'Fishing' went down like this: my Dad would cast the line and catch a little fish. G would reel the line in and then I'd take the fish off the hook and show G his catch. It was a thing of beauty. My Dad's fishing skills certainly made the adventure work.

Overall, what a perfect day to spend with the fam! I can't wait to tackle more adventures with G!
