a little man and his gun

we spent some of labor day weekend down at mark's parent's house. mark's brother, david, and his family also live there so we hung out with them as well. we had a nice time. my sister-in-law just had a baby about three weeks ago so you can guess what i did all weekend...
i hardly let go of that baby. he is so precious. 
mark, david and kids did a lot of outdoors stuff all weekend. the kids were in heaven! on saturday they went to delta, utah (yeah, i didn't know where that was either) to dig for fossils. they were lucky enough to find a few. on sunday they went shooting. well, ethan got to go with the older boys...liv had to hang back with us women folk. 
mark snapped a few pictures of ethan that i think are hilarious and adorable. he's growing up too fast and these pictures really show that. 
apparently he's a good shooter. look at that form!

he shot at some discs with this gun and hit a few.

this is my favorite picture. we're just raising a little gun totin radical over here!    
but with a mom like this...
taken a few years ago
...i guess he doesn't have much of a choice!

side note: i'm not a big fan of guns but i don't mind a little target shooting now and then.

Don't mess with mama--she packs her some heat.

Ethan looks SO grown up in these pictures! He's gonna be such a little heart-breaker.

And yay for filling the canteen a little with the baby. When I have my next kiddo, you can take that baby all you want! ;)
