Hubby always tells the kids that when he was a kid, he used to catch craw fish whenever his Dad would take him in the river. I was the same way, we always catch crabs in the river when I was growing up.
We found some live shells, this is the first my kids seen them alive. The shells reminds me of my life back then, we used to gather this and cooked them. We put the shells back after I took a photo of them. We found so many craw fish swimming around so we started to catch them.
At first, I showed him how to catch them. MY husband found some bait containers which helped us in catching the craw fish. Catching the craw fish brought the youth in me, I felt like a kid again lol.
It's funny that both of them fell and got so muddy but they just laughed it off.
Both hubby and I were surprised of how much enjoyment the kids had with this simple activity.
We caught almost 40 pieces of good size craw fish that day. You might ask what we did with them, well, you'll find out soon hehehe. Below are some mother and daughter photo opp before finally leaving the place.
It was a fun-filled weekend for us. The kids got to enjoy what me and hubby enjoyed as a kid. They appreciate nature even more. It's just sad that most of the kids nowadays don't even enjoy what the nature has to offer.
My daughter told her classmates what did during the weekend and she said that they don't really care and not interested with that kind of stuff. I told her not to be bummed out about it as not all people think the same or appreciate the same things. Some just enjoy gadgets and others enjoy simple things, just like we do. I also told her that the activity that we did is healthy for all of us.
