Celebrating Our Favorite Guy

Celebrating Our Favorite Guy

We celebrated Tyler’s birthday exactly the way he asked: outside with guns. ha!

He may be a police officer, but most of his shooting is at the qualifying range (fun fact: they have to continually qualify to carry their firearms). So he wanted to go shoot for fun. There is an outdoor range not far from us, so that’s where we headed for his birthday.

We loaded up all of our firearms and spent the afternoon.

He also showed Remi how to shoot. We believe in responsible gun ownership, which includes showing your kids the power of a gun and how to handle them responsibly (like protective gear and ONLY when grownups are around). She only shot a few times, but he loved teaching her this.

She spent most of the afternoon with her headphones on playing with the grandmas. Shout out to them for taking turns letting her run around in the woods.

I got to shoot my gun, and also got some fun shots with Tyler’s.

Mom and Nancy got some shots in as well! This is mom shooting my dad’s TINY little .22 gun. He always loved that.

After shooting, we went nearby to Jack Creek. I’ve heard of it, but we’ve never been and it was BEAUTIFUL. The creek made for a great swimming area, and even though it was a little cooler, there were kids and adults swimning.

So Remi HAD to get in the water. Thankfully, I had some extra clothes.

When we got back home, we had taco soup, and then he opened his gifts. Remi is SO fun on birthdays. She’s just full of joy for everyone. I love the way she helped him and was so excited about everything he opened.

And then she LOVED him blowing out his cake (side note: he got one candle because the rest were either pink or unicorn candles. I had one plain star! haha).

We are thankful for Tyler and how he works hard, loves well, and leads us. Happy birthday, babe!
