Default First trip with the three stooges

Took a quick trip to the lease in Dickens Co. which is a five hour drive from the house. It’s first trip I’ve taken with all three of my boys 10, 7, and 3. We had a good time even though it was cut short. Left last night in a hurry to beat the rain coming in. It’s a different experience being there with all of them making memories for them, not me. I, most importantly they, loved every minute of it even though it was only an overnight trip.

Man I miss my three boys at that age! It’s funny how they’ll talk about memories they have from little trips like that when they were young. Keep on with it Dad!

As long as when you get back home and the oldest run up to mama swallowing air gulps on the way then eagerly says, "Mom, look what dad taught us." Then from the inner depths he expells a voluminous.......BelCH!

I taught them the difference between “Home Rules” and the “Deer Camp Rules” and the DRC’s stay at deer camp! Unless mom is there, then it’s “Home Rules” all the time…

Awesome. I miss those days when my hunting success became secondary to just being out there with my young kids. Enjoy it to the fullest.

I took mine to the lease for 4-5 days when he was 3! Rode the ranger, fed animals, had campfires, smores, all kinds of fun stuff! He found a ATV mud riding video in the camp and watched that while I was cooking hot dogs one evening and saw about 1.5 seconds of 2 girls wrasslin in the mud and the first words out his mouth when we got home was "Momma! We watched girls mud wrassle!" She looked at me like WTH have you been doing!

Now he's 12 and he still never misses an opportunity to toss dad under the bus.

I need to take my youngest grands, twins of age 4 (almost). But their dad wants to be the first to take them. But he's in the same boat I was in when my kids were their age, Too much job demand.

It was always fun when Dad was in charge. Ice cream for dinner, drinking cokes all day long, and nobody cared whether you were wearing clean underwear or not!

Good for you. I miss those days with my three boys. My biggest thrill this year is that one lives in Utah, one in Oklahoma and one in Houston. They are buying out of state licenses to come hunt hill country deer. You will never regret the time you spend outdoors with your boys.

Ha. we had no tv reception at the lease when my boys were young so watched VHS or DVD. I called it history lessons, watched Tombstone, We Soldiers with Mel Gibson, etc. Biggest thrill came when one boy got home and said Dad, I googled those names and those were real people!!

Yes sir that’s my little man. The older boys are from my wife’s previous marriage, but they call me dad. Love them all the same! Hunter’s going to have a rough go of it but he reminds me of myself when I was young. He’ll be a handful that’s for sure! Here’s a link to Hunter’s story

That’s great. It only gets better.

If that’s your red truck, that is a clean ride.

Appreciate that! It is my/shop truck just turned 160K on this trip and 6.4 hemi is just broke in. I’m ready for more memories with these hooligans with deer on top of the flatbed.

That's a great looking crew. Oh yes. I remember building box stands with my two when they were home. Can't recall how many times i got whacked with a 2X4. Don't blink.
