Megan's Graduation

My little sister, Megan, (Meg McMuffin, Shake-a-Leg Meg, Midget, Mageegan, and who knows what else we call her) graduated high school!  At first I thought it was weird to blog about her graduation, but she's like my oldest child, really, so of course I'm gonna blog about it.  

I'm so excited for her to start her "big girl life" and try a ton of new things and do hard stuff and grow right up.  She's heading up to Weber State University in the fall and it's gonna be sad to not have her around but I'm seriously so excited for her.

Graduation was short and sweet, and the graduates did a flash mob which was fun.

It was fun to have Papa Perry in town from Japan for graduation.  
My dad and Realaine came down the weekend before to spoil Megan with attention too.
We are all so proud of her!
(Marshall was at school because he just couldn't bear to miss one day with his awesome teacher and class and their water party.  He's a big fan of Meg too, though.)

Memorial Day Outing

While on Kolob for Memorial Day we rounded up our clan and brought some stragglers (Scott's, Ballard's, and Ashcroft's) with us over to Oak Valley to shoot.  That's the boys' favorite thing to do lately.  We were just shooting clay pigeons and a few tannerite.  Someone had just dropped some cows off right there and they were so dumb!  Every time there would be an explosion from the tannerite the cows would come closer!  I'm glad I'm smarter than a cow.  Anyway... it was fun!  I think everyone got a chance to shoot and not to brag or anything, but I'm a pretty good shot :)  I'll thank my dad for that since he shared his good eyesight genes with me.

Cierra brought Sam along :) birds...

The little boys were TIRED and slept most of the time.

Marshall took that chance to run around exploring with his "girlfriend," Meg.  You'll see her in a sec...
He found this skeleton and carried it around forever.

Marshall loves shooting with Daddy.

Melissa nailed some tannerite just then...

Looks like Karter woke up and was watching Marshall blast those targets with his BB gun.

There's Meg!  She's such a cutie...  
Whenever we are at the cabin we always have to check if Meg is up there too.  I hear it goes both ways too...

More Daddy-Marshall time using Uncle Brady's cool new gun.

I wish we could go shooting a lot more... Marshall just loves it so much!  
It has been fun that since he turned five and got his BB gun we have made time to go a lot more.  Before that, I can only remember one or two times that Colby took me out shooting.  :)

Oh yeah... Macy was there too.  
She LOVED those bright orange clay pigeons.  She wanted to eat them the whole time!
