Over Memorial Day weekend I went on the most amazing camping trip ever! It was a huge family reunion, extended family and all, piled onto a cousin’s land up in some mountains near some river. I had a super awesome time, but wanted to try and take a break from technologies and ended up forgetting to really take any pictures!
So instead I will share with you two doodles I made of two of my most memorable experiences!
First is me shooting a gun for the very first time!
My super awesome, very nice cousin helped me shoot his hand gun (actually I don’t even know what kind of gun it is…). I have this irrational fear of guns where I think they will explode at any place I touch them. So I was scared shit balls. He even had to pull the trigger for me the first time! And every time after I pulled the trigger on my own, I’d make a “ahheeeee” noise. But I came off the range grinning ear to ear, and apparently I hit every target I aimed at (which was two haha).
I still have my irrational fear of guns, but at least now I know I can hit the things I aim for should I ever need to shoot something?
The other awesome experience I doodled was “swimming” in the river!
Honestly, the river was so shallow that it never even went up past my boobs. But I’m not a very strong swimmer, so there I was with my giant-ass floatie, inching out into the water while everyone was already partying in the river. (And to be fair, I kinda almost drowned the last time I went to a river. …kinda.)
But I ended up having a blast! I even walk/swam/floated all the way to the other side of the river!
So I guess I had a weekend of conquering some fears 🙂
I had so much fun this trip! Everyone brought their dogs that were galloping about all weekend. We made a giant bon fire. My girlfriend brought her silks that rigged up to a tree. It was fantastic! I can’t wait for our next reunion camping trip!
