Bow & Arrows

funny cat pictures - Why can't you just read Harry Potter or The Hunger Games like all the other kids?

Two of my kidlets read Hunger Games. I read the trilogy, too. So what comes after reading the books and seeing the first movie?

Archery lessons.

Last night, the five of us headed to Archery World in Vancouver for a private lesson. The youngest is too young for the Hunger Games, but she  was up for learning to shoot a bow and arrow.

I'd looked into summer archery camps. One looked very cool, but it was quite pricey especially with three kids who would want to attend. I decided a more cost effective way was to do a private lesson. If they liked it I could buy them gear and just let them keep practicing.

Needless to say, they loved it. Not surprisingly, Rose was a natural, but she got tired pretty fast. It didn't take long for the other two to consistently hit the target, either. The instructor also had hubby and I shoot. It was really fun.

We now own three bows, fifteen arrows and a family pass to go shooting.  It's fun to see everyone so excited. They can't wait to go back!

Hope you have a nice weekend!
