My son is still little but he begs me to tag along. For the past couple of years I've made a point to pick a dry day in the beginning of the season to take him out.
The forecast was for rain, but it held off long enough for us to get out for a couple of hours. It was a nice gentle start to the season and he had a great time. Not only did he have a duck to play with while we waited for more, but he found a lost decoy and a dead seagull on the hike back. He was in heaven. :grvn
