Yosemite Continued

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Hanging in RJ's father's house is a picture of
Richard with a Landon-sized RJ on his back.
They're fishing a river in Montana.
RJ's passed out, sun shining on his little blond head.
And Richard has a look of absolute contentment spread across his face.

Throughout the six hour drive to Yosemite
RJ reference that picture.
How excited he was so share fishing with Landon.
What a big moment this was for both of them and
the hope of many father/son adventures to come.

Normally RJ has to half drag me into my waders.
I've never loved fly fishing the was he has.
Until this trip.
I had such a good time.

Partly because the weather was gorgeous and the scenery amazing.
Largely due to the fact that the rivers were wide.
So I didn't spend 90% of my time untangling my line from trees.
But mostly because of the joy on my man's face.

Every half hour he would grab my hand and tell me:
"I'm lovig this."
"It doesn't get any better than this."
"My wife and my boy. Fishing. I'm so happy right now."
