William loves water, that is no secret. So it is no surprise that he loves the fish pond that my Mom has at her house. There are several goldfish in the pond and William thinks it is hilarious to try to catch them with his hands. The fish are really tame (can you tame a fish?) so they come right up to your hand when you put it in the water and nibble on the ends of your fingers. He loves it!
He also likes to splash at the fish…which probably isn’t such a good idea, but he has fun nonetheless. If you look closely in the picture you can see Uncle Aaron’s feet, we stay really close to William while he is near the pond because we know that one of these days he is going to try to swim with the fish!
*an interesting side note…at Josh and I’s wedding reception we had small fish bowls with a goldfish in them sitting on the tables. By the end of the night, many fish were floating in their bowls and some guests did some bad things to the fish, but there were some survivors. My Mom still has a goldfish from our wedding reception in her pond! 9 years later…the thing is still swimming!
