julia's got a gun.





this weekend was a bright, freakishly warm one; and after days full of frigid weather keeping us holed up in our bungalow all week, it really couldn't have come at a better time.

saturday we celebrated the sunshine in true midwest fashion, and went shooting guns. we shot, and compared, and debated on the ultimate zombiepocalypse weapon of choice. i believe mine and kyle's choice was the 22 rifle. light and quiet.

on sunday we went to the park, laid on a blanket, soaked up some good ol' vitamin d, and tried to coax my niece into crawling for the first time. we also passed time by doing our favorite thing--people watching. it's quite entertaining. especially when watching adults interact with children.

today brings nasty, butter cold weather again. isn't it just like a monday to do something awful like that? *sigh*

  9. my dad and sister are both really into guns and like to shoot - they freak me out though. they're trying to teach me, and i'm trying to overcome my fear...
    looks like a fun day!

    1. they can definitely be intimidating at first! the more you shoot them, the more comfortable you'll be. i think it's important you have healthy fear (ie respect) of them though...that makes you more cautious and safe for sure!
