Ryan is ridiculously handsome.
We've been going to Mongo for as long as I can remember. My parents would take us to the Pigeon River Forest Preserve to catch tadpoles, canoe, hike, fish in Rainbow Pond, and to the fish hatchery to see all the trout. We went there over the weekend, covered ourselves in mosquito repellent and hiked around looking for carp. Aaron, John, Nic and Andy have been friends since they were little 6th grade buddies. They've gone to Mongo with us many times through the years.
As always, we stopped by the Mongo General Store for lunch... where you can buy a turkey sandwich, an oatmeal cream pie and live bait all at the same time. It's awesome. This was Tracy's first time to Mongo. She is the perfect wife for Aaron.
See that camera my dad is holding? That's one of the reasons why I have so many great pictures. He is quite the photographer. You can see a lot more of his hobby on his blog.
