A hunting we will go...

The other week, Daddy and some boys went out west to WY hunting. Needless to say, Benji was not impressed he couldn't go with. So when Daddy got back, he took Benji hunting. Then Carolyn found out about it.. and she was not impressed. So then, he took them both hunting. So far Katie and John haven't caught wind of it... :) This picture cracks me up.. Maybe it's Carolyn in her purple camo, or those bright pink tights, or the fact that her feet are tucked into Benji's old cowboy boots, or her little pistol, maybe it's her 'hunting mittens', or maybe it's because Benji is quietly lurking in the background.. just to get in the picture. He claims he's following tracks. Either way... these are 2 of my kids.. and I love 'em!
Remember that hunting trip Daddy went on? These are some of the only pictures he took! His mighty, big 10 point mule deer? No picture.. except the one on his phone (which I can't figure out how to get on the computer). I'll have to wait until it comes back from the taxidermy to see it. Then I'll have forever to gaze at it on our living room wall, and listen to all the hunting stories that follow it.
Areas they hunted
More scenery
It is on this exact ridge, that he shot his 10 point mule deer buck.
Men and their hunting stories. I'm in luck. Because in exactly 1 week... it's opening morning. I shall kiss my husband good bye for 9 days. Only to see him when he sneaks in not so-quietly to bed, late at night! But I forgive him... because he brings in all the yummy venison!

LOL!! I love the pictures!! I love their guns, how they have cowboy hat and boots on to go hunting. so cute. You should hang this one!

I so badly want to go out west. I see everyone's pictures of the mountains and scenery and I want to see that for myself. Maybe next summer I can get Justin to take time off work and we can go out west.

Neisha- it's (the west) way better in person than in pictures. since we missed menom. this year, we're thinking about getting a MT/WY conv.. with a side trip of course! I love, love the west!

Well, it's amazing if he didn't run into Sandy while he was out there-- she just sent a picture of her in front of that big monument, Devil's tower! :)

In my book, purple camo is the ONLY way to go... and believe me when I say, My daughter has read that book cover to cover! ;)
