Target Practice

Well we are in New York visiting with my sister and her family.  My niece is quite the archery genius.  I have been keeping up with her progress as she has been competing.   She is awesome with all her medals and trophies.  I couldn’t be more proud.  Well today she had archery practice and we decided to all go and get in a little practice.  Gotta say, archery is pretty friggin awesome!  Anyway.

In the beginning I just sat on the bleachers wishing it was me standing at the line with a bow in my hand.

The majority of the rest in the black.  Second time at the line I had improved. I was doing so well midway through that a lady walked up to me and was like “You are awesome!”  I said thank you, but I gotta say, I was beaming inside.  I was so proud of myself.  These are some of my targets.

This my last target before I pulled my arrows and how my target looked after I was done.  I had SO much fun today.  This is quite the stress reliever.  Makes me want to go home and find an archery range.  Awesome right?  Not bad for a beginner.

This last photo is of my husband, my son, and me.  We’re all at the line.  I think this one of our first trips to the line.

Whole family at the line

We all thoroughly enjoyed our day.  All and all this has been a great trip home to visit with family.  I’ll be back home on Monday, so know that the blog will be late.  BFN!
