Day at the range........

My 2009 winter qualification on my carbine rifle is due and I am booked in for December 7th.
I figured it would be best to go to the range and make sure my sites are all aligned and my rifle is performing as it should. There is a reason for this. The cars that I drive everyday have got different racks in them, some shotgun some carbine, so I kinda just throw it in the back which means, speed bumps, sharp corners fast speeds tend to bash, smash and crash my gun around causing the sites to go wonky. Well after a short session, I am in check...... 100 meters....DONE!

The range that I have to go to has to be a 100 meter range, this means Hillbilly land here I come, Headley and Sean came with me and we traveled into the wilderness! Lucky I was the one with assault rifle is all I can say....."why this one has a pretty mouth"... (deliverance)

If you click on the above you can see the round being ejected........ Good timing Headley!

It snowed so hard when shooting we had to make a quick run for it.......this was the road on the way out, cant even see it. Slippery!!!

Rub a dub dub...

Thought I'd post a couple of pics of my cuties in the tub. Notice Seb clutching a car toy that probably shouldn't go in the bath.
Isobel has really only just got to the stage where it's safe to let go of her. She loves the bath and splashes about like a crazy fish. She really doesn't seem to care if she gets a face full of water. Seb on the other hand still doesn't even like having his head rinsed.

Uh oh! Looks like he just realized there is now photographic evidence of him bathing with his sister.

Looks like Isobel is plotting something in this pic, look at that little smirk!

I am 30....sheesh!

Can't quite believe I'm 30 years old. How'd that happen??

At least it meant I got some very cool presents including a spangly new camera!!! Thank you Neil, I love love love it!
I didn't want a party on my birthday, I didn't think it would match up to Neil's 30th extravaganza a few weeks back and considering it's pretty rare that we get to go out without the kiddies these days I opted for a lovely dinner with my lovely husband.

He took me for some Japanese food, a favorite of mine, at the Japanese Village downtown.
It was a really nice evening sitting around a teppan grill watching the chef doing some very fancy knife work. The food was yummy and the company fabulous!

Fiddling with the new camera on the way into downtown. I really like these squiggly shots of the city lights.
