all things fish.

July 29, 2014



If you have followed along with our family for awhile you know that Aiden's little heartbeat is for animals. We have a ton of pets and his love for all things animals has never wavered. He wants to be as close to animals as he possibly can! We often joke that he is the next Steve Erwin and that Chris & Aiden will make animal videos someday ;). 

Once we got down to Padre, Chris suggested taking Aiden out Deep Sea fishing for the first time. Aiden loves to fish and loves the ocean and we know it would be a memory that he would never forget. I called his pediatrician to talk through motion sickness, I wasn't sure how 5 year olds do out on the ocean! So after talking to her we decided to send them out!

They packed up a little bag and we dropped them off for the afternoon. I wasn't sure what to expect but Chris put his go-pro on Aiden's chest in the chance they actually caught something out there! 

They wound up catching two sharks and a bull red drum fish! Aiden literally had the time of his life and was excited to eat something that he caught himself. The footage of him is so fun, you can just see his thrill out there on the ocean catching these huge fish. The captain was so kind as well, really took the time to make sure Chris & Aiden had a memorable trip!
