Camping & Shooting July 2012

This year we wanted to do something fun and different for the 4th of July, so we rented an RV and went up to the Mogollon Rim from July 3rd-8th. The past few times we've gone camping we have left Bethanie with my parents because our first few times camping with her were not pleasant...but now she's all grown up at 2 1/2 and LOVED it! She did amazing! She loved playing in the dirt and playing games and searching for squirrels. She also had fun collecting pine cones...which she called porcupines ;)  We had a great time. There were no fires allowed because it's too dry up there this time of year so that was different, but it was ok. We had fun riding around in the Jeep and playing games and just relaxing. One afternoon we took a ride as a family in the Jeep and spotted a ton of deer which Bethanie LOVED! A week of camping was tiring, but so much fun and totally worth the trip. It is fun camping in an RV because we can have meals like lasagna and cobbler that can be cooked in an oven. :) So much fun. Those who couldn't come definitely missed out. Can't wait to go camping again.

While camping we like to go shooting and this time Bethanie and her cousins were able to try it out too. Bethanie was a natural. She loved it. After shooting she then wanted her own guns so we went to the camp store and got her some pretend cowboy guns. Guess she takes after her Daddy in some hobbies. :) Love that girl!!

Next post will have more pictures of our adventures in Heber on July 7th :) Enjoy these pictures

Time for shooting!

Bethanie's first time shooting a gun...looks like a huge gun, but it's just a .22

She's a pro

I think Daddy is THRILLED that his little princess is liking the guns ;)

One of his favorite hobbies

More shooting

About 5.5 months pregnant with baby #2...hope the baby doesn't mind the noise ;)

Just wanted a picture with this one...too scary to shoot :)
