Antelope hunting

A few weeks ago, Jason decided to take Lindsey antelope hunting with him. They didn't do much hunting as they did camping and playing at the lake. They were able to to a little hunting though, and Jason said that Lindsey was calling the bucks "big-daddy antelopes" and the does were "chicken-heads". Don't ask me where she came up with those names! Lindsey had a great time, and kept asking to go hunting with Daddy again.

Lindsey is a great rock climber.
Jason said she had fun sliding down this rock once she got to the top.
You can't see it very well, but she has a huge grin on her face.

Having a great time in the sand.
Checking out the water.
The next weekend, Jason decided to take both girls hunting with him. I was very impressed that he was willing to do this because it sounds like a lot of work to me. I was very grateful that he did though because it gave me a day to myself, which I haven't had in a very long time. After the first couple of hours though, I was missing my family and I was very excited when they got home. Jason said it was hard, but the girls had a great time.

Oh, and Jason did get out by himself this weekend to fill his tag. We now have a little meat for the winter! He is such a great provider!

I know what you mean! Every time Jeff and the boys leave, I find myself missing them as soon as they're gone!! Absence makes the heart grow fonder...but I'm glad you got some time to yourself!
