The World's Only!

Mission Accomplished!

Grand-daughter #1 wanted 
a "real" Bow and Arrow
in the worst way!

What better place 
to find one 
than in
Mitchell, South Dakota!

the heart of the prairie,
the place where "real"
cowboys and Indians
fought with bullets and arrows!


 The gift shop across the street 
from the "World's Only" Corn Palace
offered up a 
more than adequate
selection of Bows and Arrows!

In fact, Grandma was quite
befuddled in choosing the 
appropriate weapon 
for her sweet princesses!

I suppose girls these days
can be princesses one day
and warriors the next?

(I'm sure Grandpa will be proud!)

Two bows and six arrows...
$12.98 later the girls 
got their warrior weapon
of choice and we were 
off to Walmart!

We practiced a few times outside...
(trust me there were no cowboys in sight!)
and then we were satisfied to 
get back in the wagon car 
and ride to our next stop....

What a fun day,
Ice Cream and Hamburgers
at the Zesto,
racing carts with Nana
through the aisles at Walmart,
and getting Bows and Arrows!!

Life is Good!

My 11 year old granddaughter was introduced to archery through the movie The Hunger Games and then she took an archery class at summer camp last year and fell in love with the sport. Her parents gave her a nice bow for her birthday this past March. It's a great sport for those who prefer being a lone competitor rather than on a team sport. Hope your granddaughter sticks with it!
