Me + a Gun = Watch out

Friday, April 20, 2012 0 Comments
First time a shootin'

I have never held a gun in my life, and I was perfectly blissful in my gun ignorance, until I met Pacer. I admire that about them. I never thought I would ever touch a gun let alone shoot one. So I was mildly surprised that I actually quite enjoyed shooting a gun. It was so fun, I had a blast *haha pun intended* and I look forward to the next time. actually I am saving bottles for shootin'

Thanks Pacer & Margaret for teaching me a new activity.

Tulips, Daffodils and Other Such Pretties… OH MY!!!!!

So my mom is totally missing out on her beautiful spring garden, since she is spending the entire month of April in New Jersey… Whatever!!!!!!!
