MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

We spent the Memorial Day Weekend up in the mountains of Florence, Colorado for the Annual Colorado Springs Muzzleloaders Association Shoot.  Black powder guns and cannons are the main attraction at the camp-out, but there are other activities going on throughout the weekend.

Rocky was invited to join some musicians in a sing-along after dinner on Saturday night.  3 guitars, a banjo, a mandolin, a jaw harp, a Native American flute, a pair of spoons  and several trom-butts made up the band.

I would love to take credit for this picture, but Rocky was actually the one behind the camera while I distracted my camera-shy son Art.

 

Becca took my place in the club tent this year, freeing me up to wander the camp with my camera.  Zack passed the time between rounds at the cannon range by perfecting his tomahawk skills.

All I can say is a man has got to be very secure with his maculinity to ride around on a little pink ATV!  It was an exciting weekend but as with all trips, it was nice to finally get back home. 

We brought a stow away with us and our stove is now the home for a huge black cricket who has been serenading his appreciation for the past 10 hours.  It was pretty for the first hour, amusing for the second hour, but now its just down right annoying!  If it doesn't shut up soon I'm turning the ferret loose!
