Young Hunters Day is a free fun filled day (from 9:00 to 1:00), sponsored the local Hunters Association, for children ages 2-16. The children could participate in archery and shotgun shooting, fishing, pelt identification, and tomahawk throwing, with safety emphasized of course. Every child present could win one of the many raffle prizes and a yummy BBQ lunch was provided as well!
Here are a few pictures from the day:

We waited too long, and it got too hot, to have a short ride in the Hot Air Balloon, plus the only person that was willing to go up with me was Branch and I wasn't sure her mom would approve... We did get to watch them take it down though! And isn't it the perfect colors for Pentecost weekend!! ;)

Every child's name is entered into the Raffle. How it works is they begin with a Raffle for 3 Grand Prizes and then continue drawing names until every child has had the opportunity to choose a prize from a room filled with prizes!I found it pretty funny that our little Twinkle Toes won one of the Grand Prizes, a Crosman Air Rifle ... It is almost bigger than she is!
Branch choose a small inflatable swimming pool; Blossom choose a combination gift including a magna doodle, bubbles, and a couple kites; Chiquita picked out a little charm bracelet kit; Captain choose a target to use with his beebee gun; Rascal choose a camouflaged backpack; Snuggles got so excited and pointed to the "BALLS!!!"; and it looks like I forgot to take a picture of Bud with his new set of water guns!

By the time it was over, we were all ready to go home and cool off! We picked up some more popsicles, as well as a couple take-n-bake pizza's to simplify dinner, and headed home to fill up the swimming pool before the Treehouse kids had to go home. I am pretty sure we all slept well that night, at least I know I did! ;)
