Memorial Day Weekend

May 28th, 2008

We were able to get out of town for a couple of days earlier this week for Memorial Day. We were able to get some of our family together, and had a very nice time. Fortunately, we had a very good day weather wise, and were able to stay outside for most of the day. The kids got to shoot the bow, and a gun before their cousins showed up. They then switched over to climbing the trees, and playing whiffle ball. My dad did take a video of Skylar shooting the bow for the first time. She has been wanting to do it ever since Jacob got it. She has pretended that she was shooting it every time we talk about it. So, we let her shoot it with a lot of help from me:

Jacob was a bit upset that we didn’t get a video of him shooting, so I will have to do that next time we are out. I have a few more pictures that we took during the day, which I may try to get ready to put on here in the next few days.

We had a great time, ate a lot of food, and even got some work done. That will have to do me on “time off” for several more weeks!

  1. Pretty cool. You gotta start ’em young, and it is pretty obvious that she was having a good time.

  2. That is a great video! It looks like she had a lot of fun, I hear you on the “time off” I took the weekend off and I’m regretting it now!

  3. I’ve got video of Jacob shooting 🙂

  4. That put a big ol’ smile on this homely face! Good to see families enjoyin’ stuff like that together.

  5. She looks like a natural. Thats great to get them introduced to the outdoors at a young age. They will be deer hunting with you before you know it.
