Jonah & Daddy's First Hunt

This past weekend marked a big milestone for Jonah and his Daddy. They went hunting together!!

Michael has been looking forward to that day since the day we found out we were having a boy. He wanted to wait until he thought Jonah was big enough to understand what hunting is and be able to somewhat stay quiet. Well Jonah has done very well with knowing when he needs to whisper and when he can talk loudly or normally. I credit us going to church every Sunday for this. We don't have a children's church or nursery class during church so all the kids stay in the auditorium and MOST Sunday's Jonah does great. He is not always still but at least he is quiet. I think that is pretty impressive for a 3 year old!

So they set out Saturday evening to go hunt at our friend's land. Michael took the ground blind so that they didn't have to climb (safety!!) and so that Jonah could still move around but not bee seen by any deer. Well they did not see any deer, just squirrels, but they had a great time together. I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.

Heading out! Jonah was beyond excited. He did not nap because he was so excited and when Michael went in his room to get him, he asked if Jonah was ready to go hunting. Jonah said "YES!!" and jumped up about 2 feet. LOL

My two hunters!

Michael took some pics of them in the blind. As you can tell they were both having fun.

On the way home (which is just a few miles away) Jonah fell asleep. He finally got warm and full from his snacks. We laid him down on the floor in the living room because we didn't want him to sleep too long. He was OUT!
