My sons & I like to go fishing together, what is nice is that our location, Orland Park Illionios, allows us to do this, the Centennial Park offers two gian fishing lakes on the south end, but my men & I pack up the gear & spend a day fishing. The park also has soccer fields, baseball, skatepark, a playground & a fitness center; If we wanted to do more than fish, we could. Typically us guys make a day of it, but both of us get supper in town & then fish for minutes. Both of us then go back home, grill up whatever we caught & have a nice night as a family. When people hear about where I live a lot of people assume my men & I are going ice fishing, however yes, it does get cold in my part to where I rely on my heating device most of the year. The Spring & Summer weather is quite pleasant though. My men & I have nearly 6 weeks of nice fishing weather. Some Days our crew needs to bundle up in coats, hats & gloves, but it is still a fun time. I pack a thermos filled with tepid chocolate & we bundle together for warmth. It almost makes it more fun when it is slightly frigid, and after the cold wind & water, it is nice going inside to our hot home. My husbandy & I sprung for the nice fireplace our local Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier offered. The men gather around the fire to hot up while I put away the gear. It is a nice little thing we do together.
