Tanner's a HUNTER...........




Well the boys went on their first hunting trip ever. And it was........a SUCCESS! Well for some it was. Bryce has been wanting to introduce the boys all of them into hunting. But time and finances has been a hurdle. Well our Brother in law has some land and invited them all out for a weekend. The plan was made, written on the calender and days were counted down. The weekend came and they were all set. Bryce walked in the door from work they loaded up and went on their merry way. Well they got to their destination about 11pm. And then stayed awake till 12:30 am. Yes they were hanging with the guys. Anyhow they got up at 5:30am. And set off. Bryce and Tanner went together. While Colin went with Randall. And Owen went with Russ for a few minutes anyway. Then they called Deidra to the rescue. She came to get Owen who decided sitting in a blind quiet wasn't exactly his idea of fun. So anyway Colin and Tanner are out in the cold waiting....and waiting....and waiting. When Bryce decides to say "Hey Tanner let's pray and ask God to bring something for us. So we can share this experience together." He was fixing to say Amen. Opened his eyes and Tanner had the gun in his hands. And shot. After the celebration of hooping hollering and high fiving. Bryce said "Tanner I am not sure that was a legal shot" Tanner's response... "Well Dad legal or not it's what the Lord sent us!" Turns out it was completely legal for a kid:) So we have deer meat in the freezer. We have already made jerky, chicken fried steak and a roast. Oh my it has been so awesome. Hoping and praying that next year will be Colin's turn. And Tanner's again and maybe even Owen. I love deer meat. Here are a few pictures. What can I say. I wasn't there to get 100:)

That's fun =). And so Texan. I said I'd never marry a southerner...I've since eaten my words. And I'm sure I'll be eating deer in the near future too ;).

But I will never lose my Cali ways ;).
