Deer Camp

Where have I been?  Heck, where haven't I been is a more appropriate question, at least if your frame of reference is the state of Vermont.  The past couple of weeks Shawn and I have been in the woods across a good chunk of the state, exploring land and looking for deer in anticipation of the long awaited rifle season.  I am a hunter, of sorts, anyway.

This past weekend Shawn and I spent three days at hunting camp.  Emily was there for part of it, but mostly we had a chance to spend time being adults without the worry of entertaining a toddler, changing diapers, and preparing meals that had nutritional value.  While no deer were harmed during the weekend (sadly - because my freezer is near empty) we managed to have a very good time.  Also, thrown into the last couple of weeks has been a visit from my mother and my father's 50th birthday. 

And when it comes to Emily, she is doing great.  She's walking as much, if not more, than she is crawling.  She spent one weekend with her mommom and the other with her nana.  She's one lucky baby to have such a loving family! 

So, here are some photos from the last couple of weeks from hanging out at home to hunting in the woods.

At least you saw evidence of deer! I had asked myself the same question you did at the being of the post. We have begun to settle in here in Vermont - and LOVE it! Hope you get another chance to get a deer!
