Saturday, we went to a family day at the Waddill Wildlife Refuge Outdoor Education Center. They had all kinds of booths including canoeing, fishing, shooting, archery, food, and sponsor booths with freebies. Some of our friends met us there as well so it was fun hanging out with them.
Tate, Jonah, and Cai
They had skeet shooting but you had to be at least 10 years old to participate. Cade was the only one of the kids who was old enough to shoot at this activity. He was so excited but had never done any skeet shooting. He did great! He shot 4 out 6 clay targets.
The next thing the boys got to do was to shoot BB guns. All of the boys (except Asa) got to participate in this activity. There was a line so Cade decided to sit this one out since he was able to do the skeet shooting.
Ian shot and hit the targets.
Tate, Cai, and Abram
Jonah plus they had a camera crew filming for some show so the boys got to wave at the camera while they were waiting.
Next, the boys got to shoot 20 gauge shot guns at targets.
Then, they were having a sampling of Louisiana cooking. This shows the line of people lined up to get some food.
Shrimp salsa, Venison and Wild Boar meatball sliders, and Catfish. Believe it or not, it all tasted very good. They also had hot dogs and soft drinks for everyone.
They tried a little fishing in the pond.
Then, they moved on to this swimming pool full of catfish for a little more fishing.
Emma got to do a little painting.
They had a falconry demonstration.
Me, Candy, and Sarah
We had a lot of fun and the whole thing was free. This was a great event for the family and especially the boys. They had a blast!
This is why Asa, Sarah, and Emma were so exhausted after a long day from my Wordless Wednesday post:)
