A Hunting We Will Go

For a long time, Toby has been promising the girls that once they were old enough they could go out to the deer lease with him. They watch hunting shows together, go to Cabela's and Bass Pro, and love looking for deer in fields around dusk. They ask all the time when they can go deer hunting with Daddy, so yesterday was finally the day. Okay, so we didn't actually hunt, we just watched. For those of you who know me, picturing me sitting in a deer blind wearing camo might be a stretch, but I do have pictures to prove it. The trip was actually pretty close to perfect. It was about a 2 hour drive out there, and we got there at just the right time. Not 5 minutes after getting settled into the blind, several does came out to feed. Just a few minutes after that, a buck came out, too. Surprisingly enough, the girls stayed pretty quiet. They whispered as quietly as they could, and they tried to be still. We stayed about an hour, then headed back to the truck. The girls had a great time, and so did their Daddy. I don't know who had more fun...Toby or the girls! I had a pretty good time, too. It was sweet to see the three of them together doing something that their Daddy really loves, and it was fun to see where he spends all of his hunting time. Maybe next weekend we can all spend a day at the mall!!

Awww...that is so sweet! Daddy and all of his girls. Looks like fun and I'm sure it will be a treasured memory for your hubby. Nice to see some pics of him, too! You are a good sport!

What a great blog! I like popping in to see the blogs of people who visit mine! Girl, we had the same crush years ago. I was a major NKOTB fan... embarrassingly so. I had their posters, made a scrapbook... even won front row tickets to their concert- Couldn't go because of a High School game I had to play it... still a little bitter (sent sis and Mom). How funny to see them out and about again... maybe I'll se you at a concert!

I am sure that Toby had a fantastic time, looks like everyone did. The pictures are all so great, my favorite is of the four of you. So fun....tell Toby he can spend the Sat. at the mall next weekend since OU has a bye week! Helping a friend out. :-)

You broke the deer lease wives code! Now Anna and I will be required to go as well! :) Too cute and I love the outfits.

Just curious, did the smell of hand sanitizer scare away the deer?! Just kidding, you know I love you. :)

Anna and the boys said...

I guess Steph and I are headed out their next! :) I love the pics-great Christmas card pictures! I am proud of you for going out there. Wasn't sure females were allowed on their sacred campgrounds. Did Toby cook while you were there?

You know Bob got a call relating all of this the next morning, right? He's already asking when he can take Little One out!

I think it's awesome!
