Jacob and Alexis loved to fish! They fish from the moment they wake up in the morning to when they go to bed until something tragic happened. Jacob was fishing with Alexis's fishing pole and when he casted it out the fishing pole kept going and sunk before anyone could get it. Poor Alexis was devastated. Jacob was pretty emotional as well because he felt bad that he lost her pole. Well July 22 was Alexis's birthday and what did she get and new fishing pole she was so excited. We just went up to Trinity Lake for the weekend and Lex had to take her new pole. We got there on a Wednesday and by Thursday that little pole went to the bottom of the lake to join the other fishing pole. Another heartbreaking moment for Alexis. So my question is "Why do they Make kids fishing poles sink?"
