Mike loved to fish is an understatement. I remember Mike teaching Kristina and Sandra how to fish. Kristina really concentrated on baiting the worm, and Sandra wanted to skip that step and just catch a fish. Lots of fishing adventures. Can't forget Father's Day one year when we loaded up the mini-van with all the kids and a grill. I think Melissa caught the most fish that day!
