Well we got blessed with a 2nd daughter yesterday. Nora Ann Long came quick, water broke at 4am and within minutes my wife's contractions were less than 2 minutes apart. It was a fast ride and I treated stop lights as stop signs then left the car cranked where we jumped out and had a wheelchair. Getting inside a hospital at 5am is a little different now thanks to Covid. Nora shot out (so literal) at 5:45am without giving Momma time for an epidural. We got home today and all is well, big sister is super excited.

I recently read a thread on GON where @GLS posted and he said the following that it will stick with me "Gil, there's fishing. Then there's fishing with kids. They aren't the same." So true and I learned I was doing it a little wrong with a 2.5 year old, I have enough pics where she was smiling in pics with my 3lb bass but the 3 inch bream SHE caught was way more enthralling to her. I bought a new micro Zebco that day and look forward to teaching fishing instead of just fishing with my kid there with me.

My first daughter goes to sleep and when asked what she is going to dream about she says "huntin and fishin", she caught bream and bass before she was 2 and shot her first crossbow last week at 2.5, I hope they both grow to love the outdoors in a way that suits them and we are able to enjoy together.
