A Hunting/Cathedral Caverns Kind of Weekend
This weekend started with picking up my three oldest nephews, a lot of pizza and some movies. Early Saturday morning Logan took all three of them hunting for the first time. They ate pizza for breakfast and then Logan went over some safety guidelines and some valuable tips. It was so cold, but they layered up and had feet and hand warmers. After a few hours they came back and relaxed for a while. We ate some chilli and then they went back to hunt again. They finally saw a deer, but it ran! I think they enjoyed it and hope they can go again next year.

Logan's blind that he set up. He stole my pretty pallet :(
I bought him a propane heater attachment so they could stay warm inside and it's proved very useful.
Today we had to go to Scottsboro so we could pick up some engineer gadget that Logan needed. While I waited in the car with three sleeping kids I googled local area attractions and Cathedral Caverns popped up. We asked the kids if they wanted to see a cave. Surprisingly they were really interested and Nikolai had a lot of good questions. This cave is out in the middle of no where, but it has a beautiful set up and a great little store. We picked up a couple little trinkets and paid for our tour. Because it was so late in the day, we were the only people there and we got to ride through the cave on a golf cart! This was perfect because I was worried about the kids getting tired of walking. The kids loved loved loved getting to ride. It made the trip more enjoyable for us because we didn't hear any whining at all! We all had great questions to ask and we learned quite a bit of information. We even got to see cave crickets and some cute 1oz bats!
This cave has a huge opening!
We had an awesome tour guide!
After that we were all hungry so we had some yummy Mexican food.
When we got home Logan shot his first rabbit!! We couldn't find where the bullet actually hit the rabbit. Logan says clean shot, I say he scared the poor thing to death! Poor bunny. Gage and Amber plan to clean, cook, and eat it!
Whew, what a fun and exciting weekend. Time for this momma to go to bed so she can get up early for work tomorrow. Good night!
