Sunday fun

Today we decided to go up to the mountains for some fun. Kelly likes to go hunting and is working on getting the kids into it also (Izzak is already a big fan and a great shot). So we go up to the mountain several times a year on weekends to a place they allow shooting to practice. Don't worry we are very safe with the guns around the kids and they have been taught since a very young age about gun safety, they don't even touch them unless handed to them and they are safely taken apart and locked up at home. They have also been taught just what can happen with a gun when not handled correctly.

The weather was supposed to be nice and we weren't figuring on any snow but as you can see we were wrong!

Even with the snow it was actually pretty warm, the sun popped out several times and you could see steam comming off of the trucks as they were drying. Even though Madison in all the pictures doesn't look like she is wearing a jacket, she just kept taking it off insisting iit wasn't cold.

We went out with Kellys little sister Gloria who my kids absolutely adore and the only person in Kellys family I will truely miss when we move. I have been working on her trying to convince her she really wants to come up with us though I am not sure she is convinced. She will fly up with the 3 younger kids when we finally all come up in August I am hoping she likes it enough she wants to come back and stay!

The picture in the very bottom right is the hubby and Izzak working on Izzaks new gas powered remote control car he got for his birthday last week. He has been asking us for one for almost 2 years now but they are not cheap and take alot of work to keep up so we were waiting for him to be old enough to be able to take care of it. He was very excited and is actually outside playing with it right now.

I love the snow...and the fact that you're getting your kids outside (I can't believe how many kids we know spend entire days inside...)

You guys always have the most fun!

I almost commented that you all inspire me, but then I realized I am sitting on my couch blogging!

Blessings, y'all.
