Hop on Over....

For those of you that don't know, I have another blog that goes along with my website.

Be sure to keep an eye out over there for specials and giveaways! Today, there is a giveaway over at giving away 3 of my Holiday Baby Bibs - so be sure to join in on the fun!

What else did you expect?

How else would a weekend of quality time with grandpa (that started with an afternoon of learning to shoot a bow and arrow) end? With a trip to Bass Pro Shop of course!

Here are pictures that Grandma took on Sunday. He came home to tell me that he "pet a moose" Yep..... I see that...

And what trip to Bass Pro Shop would be complete without a trip to stare at the giant fish tank and waterfall... Someone really needs to take this boy fishing..... hmm.... I'm sure someone will take care of that soon...

WHAT IN THE WORLD!?! Okay it is just a video game, but come on! This boy clearly has an idea of how a site works on a gun, at least he doesn't have his hand on the trigger. Okay grandpa, Please - lets wait to teach my boy to shoot a gun for at least a few more years!

Archery 101 - It's TIME

For those of you that have known me, my whole life, this post will NOT surprise you. For the rest of you, yes, my father is teaching my son to shoot a bow and arrow at 3 years old. Because yes, by 5 years old he should be out hunting with Grandpa.....right? Well, maybe not, but you better bet there is some tromping around in the woods with Grandpa in the near future!
This weekend, Grandpa decided it was TIME. Time to teach Drew to shoot a bow. Grandpa has been saving this old recurve bow since Matt and I outgrew it many years ago, just for this occasion. He had been holding off because he thought that he didn't have a big enough target, but he dug out the old bow and a few little arrows and headed outside anyways!
Here Drew is mastering the one finger above, two fingers below technique. When Grandpa got out his bow later, Drew proceeded to repeat, "two fingers below" to Grandpa to remind him how to pull it back. Only problem is Grandpa uses a release, not his fingers, but Drew reminded him anyways.

Next time they will work more on positioning of his arms and drawback. Clearly it is a little off, but they were more concerned about keeping the arrow on the string and proper finger position.
I love this one. Drew's eyes are all squinty after he let go of the string. He was so intense!

LOOK! He hit the target! No need to worry about the size of the target!

My Baby Cousin Cooper

Bonding Time with Baby Cousin Cooper

Drew and I tagged along on the super quick trip to pick up Mom from Uncle Matt's house. There was a lot of driving involved but it was worth it to see the newest member of the family. Drew did absolutely wonderful with little Cooper and loved holding him. I love the way that not only Drew is looking at Cooper, but the expressions on Cooper's face in these pictures.

In this picture Drew is holding Cooper's hands and singing the ABC song to him.

Me with Drew and Cooper.

Surprisingly, Drew was never jealous of sharing mommy or grandma and grandpa (or Uncle Matt!).

How many men does it take to change an itty bitty diaper????

Apparently Grandpa and Drew needed to supervise and make sure Uncle Matt was doing it right.
