4th of July 2009

This year we decided to head up to the mountains for an archery shoot to spend our 4th of July afternoon.

All decked out in our matchy matchy red white and blue flag themed shirts... oh don't you know how my boys loved that request, but they were good sports just to make Mom happy!


We had lots of fun shooting!

Taylor got to go with us. Rudy was still recovering from the toenail ordeal, and Morgan doesn't deal with the heat very well, so we left them at home in the air conditioning... it was sooooo hot outside!
We met some friends who had camped over night the night before and got soaking wet by the pouring rains. They are Annie's owners and Annie is Morgan's sister. Everytime she went running by me when we were hiking, I would call her Morgan by mistake. They look exactly alike, except for their heads are a little different shape, and Annie is like Morgan on 3 months of caffiene!! She is a wild and crazy thing and never stops... she even made Taylor look dosile!! Can you imagine that?

Taylor was so good, by about the 3rd target, we took her off leash and she got right in the rythym of waiting for everyone to shoot in the shade laying down and then rushing to the target to pull arrows and running with Annie to the next target.

Needless to say, she was pooped out by the end of the day.

It is always so much cooler up in the mountains here, but it was still super hot... so I can't imagine how hot it got at our house.
So pretty up there in God's country!! I am really glad we decided to go!
A good time was had by all!

What a wonderful way to spend the Fourth of July....out in God's Country! Can hardly believe how much Taylor has committed to social change. That is terrific.
