We have a lot to be thankful for in this nation of ours. We have so many freedoms that many others do not.

One of those freedoms is the ability to load up the family, find a fishing hole and drop a line. This is something that I have enjoyed since a I was a small kid and something that my children now look forward to.

Without our Military, none of us would have these choices. So many of them sacrificed so much to fight for the right to live our life any way we choose.

We woke up fairly early this morning and made sure our kids understood what today meant. Knowing that the way we live is so fragile is really important to understand.

We spent a couple of hours casting out on the Yellowstone River.

Nothing nibbled but just having the time to be together as a family doing something that we all love was enough for us.

Thank you to our armed forces for protecting our rights to still go out and do things like this.

We appreciate you so much.
