St Patrick's 2012

the weather yesterday crazy! seriously strong gail force winds! we're suppose to get some snow tonight and tomorrow. we had a list of things to do that required us to drive into salt lake city. but in the wind with the expected showers, that just didn't happen. so we stayed at home and just relaxed and instead i ordered what i needed online to save a trip. 

with it being st. patrick's day, we had corned beef and cabbage. (yes i know, it's not irish.) but i'd never had it before, and jaren likes it. so we picked some up and had it for dinner. 
then my mother-in-law made 3 huge and delicious apple pies! i love seeing old cookbooks that have oil splatters and such on their pages!

oh forgot to mention... we went shooting last weekend. i've never shot anything other then a bb gun, so i was terrified to begin with. to answer some questions, no, nathan didn't go with us. the guns are kept in my brother-in-laws gun safe that's about 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. yes the ammo and the guns are separate. you'd have a heck of a time trying to find the right bullet for the right gun if you ever needed it in a hurry (since there's a lot of guns in there). also it's kept under a combo lock that only josh (my brother-in-law) and jaren know the code for. josh also has his concealed weapons permit. and between him, jaren and my father-in-law, they know a lot about guns and are very strict with safety. back to the fun part... this is me shooting a 9mm...
i also shot a 22 rifle and a 410 rifle. the 12 gauge shotgun and the 45mm handgun were a bit out of my expertise. maybe next time i'll attempt them? (doubtful, lol)
