We had a very fun and busy weekend.
On Saturday, we finally had breakfast again with my dad and uncle. It had almost been a month since we had done that and we usually do it every Saturday.
Well, my dad had talked Kurt into going target shooting with him. This is one of my dad's favorite pass times. He doesn't like to hunt but he loves to shoot objects and have them blow up. It is quite interesting to watch. My dad makes it really fun.
We all drove out to Stansberry. Some one has set up a table out by the mountain just for target shooting. I guess a lot of people go to this spot. It was like we were taking shifts with people. When we got there, there was some people shooting and then they left to let us shoot and when we were getting done, some other people showed up. The funny thing was, we found out that one of the guys that had shown up was once my parent's backyard neighbor. What a small world.
Here are the guys, Kurt, Dad and Uncle Ernie.
I was really surprised that Kurt actually shot the gun and quite a few times. He's not exactly a big fan of guns but he ended up having a lot of fun.
I told him I wanted a picture of him with the gun and this is what he did. He cracks me up!! LOL!! What a tough guy! And no, he didn't shoot the gun like that.
Ayla and I came along.
It was pretty hot outside so we didn't stay out in the heat for long. We went and chilled in the car with AC and listened to Micheal Jackson on my MP3 player. I was sad that I didn't get to see my dad blow up a milk carton he had taken from our house. Oh well. We'll definitely go out and do it again. So guess what we are starting to save for the next time. You guessed it, milk cartons.
I had to share this picture of Ayla while we were in the car. She just looked too cute in it and I thought it was funny how she had eaten her hot dog. LOL!
On Sunday, my family had a turkey dinner and celebrated my brother's birthday. Happy Birthday Bro! His birthday is actually today.
I made a simple cake for the occasion.
Here is most of the family that was there.
After dinner, we walked over to my old elementary school and let Ayla play on the playground. It was a nice Sunday and I felt like it was Thanksgiving. I was so stuffed.
Oh yeah, I received a new calling. It is assistant den leader in the Cub Scouts. I will be with the 8 year old boys. I don't know anything about scouts but I guess I will. When I received the calling I told the bishop, "Just throw me to the wolves!"
Kurt said,"They are throwing you to the wolves. And the bobcats, and the bears..." I guess those are the different ranks. Too funny. I didn't even know they were called wolves until that moment.
I have to admit, I was a little sad that I wasn't called to the Young Women's. I love Young Women's. The young women of the church are truly amazing and I love them like they are my own daughters.
Oh well. I know I will come to love my little wolves too. My first night is tonight at 6:30 p.m. Wish me luck!
