What a Weekend...
We went camping/bow hunting for the weekend. All I have to say is that I really have the best kids ever. Friday night after we got on the mountain and had dinner, my girls got their jammies on and went right to bed without one word. They snuggle down together. It is so cute.
Ryan was getting up at 5:00 am to go hunting. Yes, I said 5 AM. He woke Aniston up, got her dressed in her camo, and they rode the 4-wheeler into where the elk were. At about 10 they radioed to us saying that he had got an elk. "Yeah" I was thinking, Aniston is going to be so excited to have been with him when he shot it. Steve, Ryans dad, said that she radioed to him saying "grandpa, grandpa, I watched my dad shoot an elk". (how cute is she??)
Then after hiking all day they showed up back to camp at about 5:00 that night. She is such a trooper. She spent the entire day with him, not complaining one time. I seriously love her so much and her dad is the proudest in the whole world. He has told everyone that she was with him the whole time. They are so cute!! I am so upset that I didn't get any pictures of her in her camo, they left so stinkin early. I didn't get any with the elk, because they had to quarter it up to pack it out. So no pictures of the whole eventful weekend.
While I was back at camp, Emerson and I played in the dirt all day. She is pretty funny. I would wash her face and about a second later it was dirty again. Oh well, that is what camping is all about.
So I come home to a mess and I am not looking forward to cleaning it up. The worse part about going is always coming home to clean it up.
