I had babysitting pre-arranged and a cute little fish-themed lunch packed for us and ready to go! The lunch was really easy. I did tuna FISH sandwiches, GoldFISH crackers, and Swedish FISH! Not super healthy, but super fun! I seriously tried SO hard to think of a delicious fish-themed drink but I don’t think one exists. Anyone know??

We dropped the kids off and we were off! We headed to one of my favorite ponds. I love it because there is an old bridge I used to jump off when I was a kid, a beach area, a park, and LOTS of ducks. We saw these little cutie-patooties right when we arrived.

So we talked, we laughed, we made bets about who would catch the first fish. This was pretty fun because we set up some fun little winning-favors between us {wink-wink}.
My husband is a GREAT fisherman, and I have no clue what I’m doing! Hanging out with him doing something he really loves was so fun. And guess who won the bet?

OK fine, it’s not a fish. But I DID catch the first item: a VERY small stick/branch thing. I could have SWORN I had something. My husband said no and to leave my pole in there but hey, reeling it in is the most fun part right??

He caught 3!!!! And in the style of a true gentleman, he let me reel most of them in. :-)

So try it!!! Again, here is the list of FREE FISHING DAYS in your state. Grab your man and go!

    Robin, What a fun day! My husband LOVES to fish and we’ve only done it a few times, so I know he would really like this. Just curious…did you eat the fish you caught?

    If only I knew about this a couple of days sooner:( Oklahoma’s free days were Saturday and Sunday. May just have to go get fishing licenses:)

    I just presented my hubby with this Date this past week since our free fishing weekend was last weekend. I put it on the kitchen table with some sour gummy worms (the bait) & swedish fish, along with the print outs. He was excited and grinning from ear to ear.

    This is the 3rd Date I’ve tried and he has loved them all so far and is really appreciating that I am putting more into our marriage…in turn he is also :)

    The Dating Divas + a little time & effort= a happily married couple :)

    Thanks Girls!
