Bow Hunting Skills...

This past September, Loni had the opportunity to refine his skills in bowhunting (queue the Napoleon Dynamite reference...bow-hunting skills...) on an actual HUNT. All the boys in my family headed over to Eastern Washington at the gracious hosting of my Uncle Blaze and Aunt Josie to go out and prove their manliness by hunting for deers. Unfortunately, the only thing they got to shoot was a water bottle in the river, but it was still a very fun time by Loni and the guys. I believe this may be a new annual tradition.

Loni actually became very good at shooting his bow. Leading up to this expedition, all the guys would get together to practice bowhunting. Seeing as how this was the first time he really ever shot a bow, he did exceptionally well and eventually became very skilled at it.

Ellis also found a love of bows. She is a self-proclaimed Merida and now wants to shoot bows everytime we are at my parents house. My dad's dream of raising a tom-boy is slowing coming to fruition. Luckily for me, she really enjoys ballet and princess still. :)
