Manly Men!






       My Dad always joked with us growing up that he was a real "Manly Man." Not that he isn't, but he always says it in this caveman like voice that makes me smile. One characteristic of a true manly man would have to be his ability to hunt! 

         In attempt to continue to turn his boys into manly men, my Dad got Jordan a shot gun for Christmas. Ever since then, Jordan and Tyler have been working on their skills. Tyler, Jordan, Bobby, and Aaron went hunting for Chuckers last Saturday. The only real hunter among the four of them is Aaron. I trusted Aaron to be the mother of the rest and keep them all in one piece. I can never picture too much good coming out of Tyler and Jordan mixed with shot guns. I reminded Tyler before he left that he was soon to be a dad and should act as such! I was pretty proud of them though because they actually went and got their hunter's safety and all that good stuff (not that they would ever dream of going shooting with out it ;)). To their dismay, the boys didn't catch any chuckers, but they hiked ALOT, found a cave, and seemed to have a really great time. I reminded them promptly when they got home that true manly men bring home the meat and I would be expecting some next time :).

Yes, nothing better than killing what's for dinner....too bad you went hungry!!! I'm particularly glad they took the hunter safety class, and even happier Tyler is keeping an eye on Jordan. Love you guys....
