Hope's Hunting Trip

It wasn't actually just Hope's hunting trip. She has been counting the days until she was able to go hunting and camping with Big Daddy and Hunter. I have heard..."How many more days until I go deer hunting?" more than 100 times...seriously.

She is fast asleep and probably dreaming of her time spent at our friend, Greg's land. It was Big Daddy, Hunter, Hope, Greg and his two kiddos. They always have such a good time when they go. He has been allowing them to tag along for over 10 years after the holidays....and yes, they are psyched about their after Christmas dove hunt.

Greg's son got a deer, Big Daddy got a hog and Hope well...she nailed a bag of marshmallows from what I hear. She said she didn't really like to go sit and hunt that much. For those of you who know her, you know she is NOT a quiet child. I am not sure how it happened but she is loud, when she speaks, when she laughs and when she is just who she is. And well, it probably doesn't go well with sitting in a stand for a few hours with complete silence. Now, if you ask her if she had fun she will give you a very boisterous "Yes!!" But, if you ask her what she loved the is riding four wheelers and roasting marshmallows, and eating smores, and being by the campfire.

So, maybe we don't actually have a deer hunter on our hands...perhaps she is just a "camper gurl". And she loves being with Big Daddy. In fact, if you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up...her latest answer is "a man, so I can be a Dad". I agree, Big Daddy has lots of fun things he does. If I had the choice between grocery shopping, dishes and laundry as the Mommy or fishing, hunting and camping as the Daddy...I'd probably want to be a Daddy too. But, if she ever had the chance to go to work with Big Daddy for just a few days...I'm guessing being the Mommy would become a much more glamorous option :0)
