Friends, Firearms and Formals

We were lucky this past week to spend a lot of time with friends and family!

Wednesday, we went to Meagan's to eat dinner with friends - Megan, Web and Vance were there, too, so that meant that Dawson had a playmate!

One of the things I love most about my son is that if he loves you? He shows it.
"Dude, this is so the best part of the movie."
Watching Happy Feet together...
...followed by an adventure outside complete with caterpillars...
and bubbles! Lots of bubbles!
Dawson and Vance could've stayed out there for hours chasing them.
Saturday, Little Man and I surprised my parents with an unexpected visit at their house in Chattanooga! I love surprising people, especially them. It was a beautiful day, and so we spent most of it outside. My dad took the kiddies on a ride in the wagon...

"Don't be nervous. This isn't his first time out."
I'm not sure who had more fun - my dad or the kids?

The Apple Dumpling Gang rides again!

The firearms part comes up next...I shot a gun.

Yes, that's what I said...I shot a gun.

One of the benefits of having a brother who's a soldier? Target practice.

That would be a 9 mm Sig.

I have no earthly idea what that means.

But I? Am totally bad.

The formal part comes in next:
My baby brother went to his first prom! Isn't he handsome??? Aren't I ancient???

This will be a great picture to look at when Dawson goes to his first prom.

With his mom.

Hilarious! I would die if I shot a gun! Oh my word!

Laura said...

I always knew you were a pistol-packin'-Momma!! Too funny!

Natalie said...

The first time I shot a gun - at a gun range with Chad - it was with a sig and I screamed. It REALLY caught me off guard!! BUT now I'm hooked and ready to get my concealed weapons license.

Cute pics of your baby -- he is so precious!

I love a gal with a gun. My whole family believes we should all own at least 3!

Michelle said...

Love all those pics. Ok, I have never ever shot a gun. That is so cool. And yes , your brother was so handsome!

Megan L Hutchings said...

I have to agree with what Rachel said. It is totally classy for a southern gal to have at least one gun :)!

Vance has so much fun playing with Dawson. He could be his other adopted little brother.

Meagan said...

Great post!

Um... YOu... with a gun? TOTALLY PERFECT FIT! I'm just sayin! lol

Lauren Kelly said...
