While Sighting in the Rifles....

I was really surprised that my nephew didn't freak out. Guns are loud, right? He just covered his ears and watched the guys. Here are a couple cutes pics of the day.

He was really amazed at the woods. He lives in a suburb of Minneapolis, so being surrounded by so many trees was fun. He wanted to go play in them.

He's such a ham. He was posing for me and running around like a goon. Such an adorable little face!

It was cold, but so lovely outside! Minnesota is so nice this time of year!

Hanging out with great Grandpa and Grandpa. He really wanted to drive the tractor. And backhoe.... and scoop.

The sky was so perfectly blue!

Following Joe and Grandpa after seeing how well they shot their guns!


I ended up having to hold his ears closed. I'm already half deaf anyway.... Darn that gangsta' rap I listened to (and still do) so loud.

Trying to figure out what Joe was doing.

Just being cute!



It's been a weird week. My Grandpa Jim died one year ago on October 8th, so my hearts a lilttle heavy... He was such an awesome man. I know he's with God, but I miss him. He's in such a better place.... ♥

And I just miss my Cassie girl too. It's amazing how such a sweet little thing such as a cat can make your life so happy. She was a doll. My poor Brutus is lonely too. but I got my snugglebunch back now that she's gone, so it's mostly ok.

My other Grandpa was in the hospital too with VERY low platelet levels but they don't know why.... He's still running around like the badass German he is. 80 years old and still scampering about like a spring chicken!

Oh, and my dad fell off of a ladder this weekend while trying to put up his new deer stand. Joe says he actually did a backflip and landed on his back.... At least it was in the woods and he didn't land on some stumps or rocks.

I couldn't help but laugh (while I babied him) because it's just so my family.... We are an odd bunch and the most randomly odd things happen to us!
