Target practice.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Yesterday was Izzy's last day in town and we had plans to go to the Academy for target practice.  Izzy had never shot a gun before, so Joey was going to teach her.

Our instructor - the hot hubby.

Yeah, um... see that target with all the bullet holes in the head and chest?  I might suggest that if Izzy has a gun, you should stay away.  She's dang good!!

Then there was me.

Don't laugh.  But you can most likely be assured that if I have a gun?  Yeah, you'll be totally fine.

After the shooting range, we thought Izzy needed one last taste of San Antonio, so we went out for Mexican food and margaritas.  Mid-dinner, we had an impromptu photo shoot.

We had a great dinner just enjoying our last night together.  Izzy is so special to our family and the kids absolutely adore her.  I'm so thankful for technology - email, texts, skype - because it makes Canada seem so much closer to Texas.

(Please excuse the blurry photo.  This is what happens when you ask a restaurant patron, who has maybe had one too many, to take your pic. LOL)

See?  She fits right in!

Izzy, we had so much fun and are so blessed by your friendship.  Thanks for spending your vacation with us!

I shot a gun one time. I was terrible and it kinda freaked me out some. Dustin's been wanting to take me back though!

Looks like you had an amazing time with your friend!

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
