We broke the tips off several arrows, and one snapped in half when I shot it into rocks. Oops!
My dad joined in on the fun too! These bows were his and my uncle's (his older brother) when they were kids/teenagers. In fact, my dad bought the leather quiver in the early 1970's. Now it's vintage!
If you look closely, you'll see a deer in the middle of this shot. He didn't stick around long, but he probably would have been fine considering my terrible aim.
Speaking of Katniss, have you all seen the newly-released trailer for Catching Fire?
Oh man, and speaking of CATCHING FIRE, there were some serious wildfires on our drive home sparked by a lightning storm.
It was actually really scary driving home, because it looked like we were driving right into the smoke.
This particular fire was around 5,000 acres when we were driving by it last Saturday. It is now up to around 21,000 acres.
Have you ever been that close to a wildfire? Did you learn about Smokey the Bear as a kid? Are you excited for the newest film installment of the Hunger Games triology?
