Papa and his birthday gift :) {mt. pleasant, tx portrait photographer}


Last Friday was my grandfather's (Papa's) 74th birthday, and according to him, it was the best birthday he's ever had :D. The reason why is because we got him something he has ALWAYS wanted: a Henry Big Boy 45 Long colt.

 My Papa is a true cowboy at heart, and this gun is pretty much the classic cowboy gun. When he opened it Friday night, he was being brought to tears one minute and then giggling like a little boy the next; it was TOO precious :'D. 

So, the next day, he came to the shooting range with us to try it out!



But first, I told him I'd take some pictures of him with it.
Papa: "I'm trying to think of how John Wayne would've held it." Hehe :D.



I love my papa so much; he is such a sweetheart and the coolest cowboy I know :).


He finally got to shoot it and loved it :D. While they shot, I sat in the car and watched "Spongebob Squarepants" and "Doctor Who" on Netflix. Hehe :). But later, I too shot a gun. My brother Daniel wanted me to try out the gun he had bought for his wife Emily: a Beretta Neos :). I actually got two bull's-eyes the first two shots! It was fun :D.


Hope y'all have a nice weekend :).

With a smile,
