Not Your Typical Saturday.
Adam was invited to participate in a "celebrity shooting competition". Which cracks me up for two reasons. Let's see #1. Ummmm... He doesn't shoot. #2. Celebrity? hummm...I love it!
*not to dog the competition or my husband being called a celebrity. Just funny..If you really know us:)
He is required to practice at least two times before the event (which is probably a great idea:)
A wonderful man named Steve who is helping Adam allowed Jace and I to come shoot as well. I had no idea what to expect. The only thing I knew was it was going to be outside. I pictured in my mind being in the woods with random gunfire. Because of this vision, I made us wear red. Not at all what I expected. We probably looked like dorks, but I am the biggest self proclaimed dork of all time. So no problem!
It was a blast. We shot a '45' a '22' and a "glok"? I think Adam and Jace are addicted. Me? well.. I had to pee so bad I couldn't concentrate. I finally found a spot in the woods. I was freaked out the whole time trying to pee with gunfire going every direction! After my "break" I found a new sense of focus and actually hit the target.
This is definitely something we don't do on a typical Saturday and the day before Easter, but hey we're not exactly a typical family.
