Gobble gobble

A few weeks ago we went on our annual turkey hunting trip with my family. We had a great turnout with 15 people there!

Eric got an 18lb bird. The biggest bird I think anyone has caught in the whole 23 years they have been going.

Both Eric and Brian slept outside one night in the bed of a pickup truck which I thought was crazy. Apparently they slept well so that's all that matters.

I think our group picture turned out fabulous, and even though we are all holding guns and dressed in camo, it is frame worthy and deserves a spot on my living room shelves.It was pretty fun this year. I even ventured out hunting on my own and didn't get lost! I'm glad that I've gone twice to experience the adventure and hang with my Grandpa, but I know that it is truly a male bonding weekend. That said, perhaps next year I'll let the boys do their thang and I'll hang with the girls. In the end, everyone got a bird except for me, Stephen and Dad. Bummer luck!

And the weather was great. All those birds and we came up empty handed. Next year we'll get one!
