Little Robin Hood

Easton got a new bow and arrow set for his birthday this year and as you can see he doesn't like it at all...Yeah right. He only wants to use it during every waking moment. Unfortunately for him mom isn't really an archery expert so he has to wait until dad is home to practice his skills. That's ok with dad though, since he likes this new bow as much as his son does. These two are pretty cute out in the back yard with their bows and arrows. My Robin Hood, and his mini Robin hood in the making.

I know I don't know much about this sport, but I was pretty impressed with how well he handled the bow for a little guy. The bow has a 10lb draw and he's able to do it like it's nothing. I'm pretty sure he's stronger than I am already :)
He still needs a little help from dad to keep the arrow in place, but other than that he's on his own with this thing. Must be in the genes, like father like son.

Now if he would just look at the target when he's shooting he'd be on his way to the olympics in no time!

He was getting a lot of encouragement from mom and dad while practicing, and it must've rubbed off on him. After most of his shots he would say something like "Good shot Easton." or "Look at that, good job!" He's certainly not lacking for positive reinforcement.

And if you didn't get enough with pictures alone, I have video too! This is just a short one. He did the best stuff earlier on, but this is still pretty cute of him shooting his arrows. My little man, growing up so fast!

Impressive! He has such great form!
BTW, let "Easton's Dad" know the grass does look great! =)

hard to believe he is only 2 sometimes! He is such a big boy and doing so much. I would say he is a pretty cute boy named Easton!

Easton is very cute and it is amazing what you can do when you are two but all I could see was the green grass. Everything here is just starting to turn green, but it is mostly weeds, so the grass looks beautiful.

I noticed the grass too... We forgot to over seed it this year so we don't have any:( next year hopefully. Anyway, that looks like fun!!
