We've been down to our bay house only two weekends this whole fall. Though one nice thing is we decided that when we go down, we leave the 14 yo boy at home with his dad. We tried to get him into fishing and paddling and the outdoors ever since he was about 5. He just never took to it and would refuse to go out, and just wanted to stay in the house watching tv and ebing on his electronics. Then come sunday morning he would start pestering us on when we were going to go home - he had no plans, mind you, just wanted to be home.
With our 5 year old daughter, it is totally different. She loves being outside, in the canoe, loves fishing, hates returning to the dock. Night and day. Leaving him with his dad and having her down there has made our times down there so much more enjoyable.
