I didn't update you on my weekend. Hubby and I went four wheeling with his sister and husband and had a blast. He was very nice and didn't do anything that scared me. In fact, I was wondering when he was going to do something a little exciting. ;oD We road some trails through the woods behind our brother in law's house and jumped a few downed trees. I drove once and almost tipped us over...ooops! Hubby was hanging on for dear life. It was just pay back for the rack on the back of the four wheeler that I was bouncing against over every.single.hole.and.bump. I heard him yell as we rounded a corner on two wheels, "THIS WAS A BAD IDEA!!!!" Of course I started laughing so hard I almost peed my pants and tipped us over.
But the funniest part of it all was BIL's reaction to the spider and their webs on the trail. He's afraid of spiders (and seeing his hunting/four wheeling/macho self it's hilarious that he's afraid of a spider!) - so after he ran into a web or two on the trails, he grabbed a long branch with leaves and held it front of him to catch them. Quite brilliant if you ask me. Even if you're not afraid of spiders, it's gross to get the webs all over you! At one point, he got too comfy the webs were all gone and lost the branch. As we were crossing a small creek, he runs into another web and gets the web along with the spider on his face. He turns around and screams, "AAAAHHHHH!!!!" SIL hates spiders too, so we were sitting on our four wheeler, just laughing at them as they scurried around and freaked out trying to rid themselves of spiders. Hubby and I seriously almost lost it.
Then we shot skeet. Rather, everyone but me shot skeet. I was all geared up the night before after watching the movie Shooter, thinking I'd be all Angelina Jolie shooting some, but once the guns came out, I freaked. BIL is to spiders as Stephanie is to guns. Yikes. That was the first time I've ever been around guns and I have to say I wasn't too fond of it. Especially when BIL wasn't paying attention and aimed the thing at me and SIL. I saw me life flash before me eyes. Surprisingly, SIL decided to target shoot some. Seeing her and her little skinny self with a shotgun aiming looked surprisingly normal for her. She's a girly girl, too, always looking her best (which is super cute) so it was neat to see a different side to her. She's the Angelina Jolie, not me! Go SIL!
It was great to get away for a little while. Hubby was surprised I think that I agreed to go with him, even more so at how much I enjoyed four wheeling. You can take the girl out of the country, but not the country out of the girl. I was in my element being from a small town. You don't see many four wheelers where we live now so it was nice to commune with nature some and get back to my roots!
