Below is our friend Marc taking care to load his pistol.
Here is the hubs taking aim at the shed in the backyard. Given a different outfit he could pass for a buccaneer of another time with that full beard! The beard is his winter coat and will come off in the spring.
Here's John after he fired the gun. It was tricky to get a shot of the muzzle flash and the smoke as it dissipated quickly.
We even let our kids fire off a shot or two. I did it a couple times and I have to say that gun was really heavy. I had to hold it with two hands.
Here's Jessica with her daughter and nephew. She and her husband John will be leaving for Japan tomorrow. He's with the Navy and they will be stationed there for three years. We will miss them.
