I get to show you how to cook fish in parchment paper because William has been begging to go fishing. We actually live pretty close to the famous Bucksnort Trout Ranch on Interstate 40 outside of Nashville.
I got him out of pre-school a little early and we went on a ‘venture.
We caught a couple of nice trout and got them filleted.
William was pretty excited to watch them get cleaned and would not stop talking about eating them. If was adorable to watch him scrunch his nose and rub his hands together like he was some evil genius planning to take over the world. Of course not long after we go on a canoe trip and he didn’t want to fish
Who knows that his 4 year old mind associated eating a fish with.
