I just got this picture from my parents, who are visiting me. This was from the exciting ice fishing trip-- my prize fish.
But it was 15 below zero and I was bundled up ridiculously so that I look just like an Emporer Penguin. (Incidentally, have you seen March of the Penguins? It is a beautiful film and I highly recommend it.)
So anyway, ice fishing was AWESOME! Paul was laughing his head off in excitement when he started pulling them in on the second trip. A lot of things are new to my soft California boy and it is sort of like taking a little boy to do things. He's adorable and his eyes light up. And you'd think seeing a mule deer was like seeing a lion. He's so excited. We have to stop the car and he goes on and on about how beautiful they are and he's so amazed. It's fun.
