Glory Days

This weather has me happy! I guess I must have that seasonal affective disorder because I sure feel better when the sun is shining and it is 75 degrees and the trees are turning their beautiful fall colors.
We spent the weekend at my parents for the annual duck hunting opener. It was Bird's first official hunt, so we were all excited. I can't get into all the muckety muck, but there were a couple of run-in's with an evil DNR lady and now they won't be able to hunt in the spot they've hunted for the past 30 years (for my dad) and 11 years (for my hubby). It was all a big missunderstanding, but I feel bad for the guys. Anyways, they managed to snag 3 ducks and a goose and we had a great meal this afternoon that my brother, Chris, always prepares. Yum!

Marley also got to try her hand at retreiving a real duck (she didn't go with them on the hunt yet), but was very interested in the ducks they brought back. After a little coaxing, her instinct kicked in and she did a great job retrieving the ducks out of the river.
The other kids had a great time fishing off the dock with Papa and going to the park with Nannie and me.



Way to pass along the hunting craft to your little ones! We are a dying breed, hunters, and it makes me so happy to see parents showing their kids the out of doors!

Long live CAMP OSTO!

Great photos of the guys, and Marley too! Good thing the blind is once again is usable, Papa Hunter(DAD) would be crushed if he could not share that time with his favorite guys! Nannie pat
