Just got done spending time with my 3 and 6 yr. daughters out in the back yard ( our back yard is aprox. 200 yds deep x 150 yds wide//the yard is not very big but most of it is the back side of the cemetery). Took my 7000c3, Penn 320 and my large Diawa Emblem Spinning Reel out tossing, the girls had a blast running after the weight and walking with me while I was counting off my distance. My 6 yr. old spent most of the time reeling the line in while I held the TIGER Rod, she had a blast and was very excited---my 3 yr. old just played in the dirt hill in the cemetery. I never spent time like this with my dad or mom as a kid and I'm really glad that I had this opportunity today doing something I enjoyed and allowing the kids to enjoy being with their dad. For me the song Cats In The Cradle hits home; my parents never took time to do much with me and it does affect your relationship quite abit when your parents to participate in your life. When I got married it was the first time in almost 15 yrs. that I talked with my Dad, now we have a great relationship. I did the reverse a yr and half ago and took him fishing, before then I think we went maybe twice as a Father and Son. I seriously believe that spending time with our kids now will pay rewards in the future, today was probably one of the best time with my kids this year.
