Daddy's New Hunting Buddy

In the past 2 years Ryan has really started hunting. He had always gone every once and a while but lately he has been going a lot. Tanner normally goes with him. A Lot of people can't believe that Tanner goes and is quiet the whole time but he is. He loves going. Ryleigh has been saying that she wants to go. So this past weekend she got her chance.
She was outfitted in all of Tanner's hunting gear and she looked so cute! She said she needed a camo bow so people wouldn't confuse her as a boy.

They left Friday night and got home late Saturday night. Ryan said she did surprisingly well. I was also surprised. This girl does not know how to be quiet for long periods of time. She took her DS though so she had something to do.
I guess for whatever reason if you need to go to the bathroom while hunting you have to go in a bottle. Ryan didn't know what he would do if Ryleigh needed to go so he took a Tupperware container. He and I both explained to her numerous times that if she had to go to the bathroom she would have to go in there. I think she didn't believe us.
Well when she woke up that morning from taking a nap in the shooting house she had to go to the bathroom. Ryan told her what she was going to have to do and she freaked out. She was crying and telling him to stop kidding. The thing about Ryan is that it is hard to tell if he is being serious or not. She thought he was kidding and she was getting really upset. She finally said "Dad, that is ridiculous. I am NOT going to the bathroom in something we eat out of!"
She then decided to just hold it. Ryan said it was hilarious how mad she was getting.
They didn't kill a deer but they did have a lot of fun just hanging out with each other.

All night Saturday night Ryleigh kept telling Tanner she was dad's new hunting buddy. He did not think that was funny. She also said she felt so sorry for me that I had to go shopping with a BOY on Saturday. normally when they go hunting it's our "girl day" as she calls it!
