Forever Young

I have always told myself that I can never ever grow up, and I am so happy to see that I married someone just like myself!!! Growing up is SO over rated!
Clint, one of our neighbors and a member of our ward, recently went with Kipper and purchased the supplies for a Potato Gun.
I personally have never ever seen a potato gun but I have heard many story's about them from my husband who has a lot of experience with them. Especially since he went to Idaho on his mission, LAND OF POTATO'S!
Clint called up Kip yesterday and told him that he was out in his front yard shooting off the potato gun! Kip and I jumped at the opportunity to join in on the fun. As we walked out, we observed that the whole street was involved. Our neighborhood is SO COOL!!! Not one person complained, everyone just wanted to join in on the shooting! I LOVE IT!!! On a safety note, just so you know, we were shooting the gun over our houses into this huge field behind our homes. It was perfect!
Here are pics of the fun process:
Just Posing with their little Toy. (P.S. Do you like Kipper's farmers tan, I DO!)
Stuffing the Potato in there.
Um, yeah??? Don't ask me??? Just being silly boys!
Getting the potato to the bottom.
Spraying the propellant, Axe Body Spray, the women were flocking!
Capping it off with the Axe body spray in there.
Bang, and that seriously is SO LOUD!!! It sounds like a gunshot! SO LOUD, SO COOL!!!!!
It's so cute, Clint and Kip could be brothers, they are so much alike in so many ways. It makes me so happy to see them playing like little boys together. They have a blast riding their dirt bikes, shooting guns, off roding, and making their own fire arms like Potato Gun's together. You can even catch them sometimes walking along the brick wall behind our house to one anothers yard. They seriously look like little 8 year old boys just having the times of their lives together, I LOVE IT!!! I am so happy that Clint is our neighbor!
So if you are ever in the area and see potato's falling from the sky, come on over and join in the fun!

I love potato guns. How fun. I also adore when "grown boys" act like "little boys". Its adorable. Yes, so isn't that funny that I know Tracy? We lived in the same apartment complex my first summer in Utah. Crazy. I was so glad she found my blog such a small world!!!

So cute that Kip and your neighbor hang out so much. We live in a neighborhood of all old people and it's so boring!!

You certainly have a "unique" hubby, and that is so neat that he can find "unique" friends just like him. All I can say is this...if this is what Kip is doing as a 27 year old, then imagine what your little boy will be doing at 7 years old....

We got to see the building of the gun in action and I must say that Kip was actually giddy... it was quite adorable! I did decide thought that the axe spray didn't do much for me!

Looks like a "Blast" my brother made one of those potatoe launcher's some time ago and shot a potatoe the length of a football field. it's a good thing to be a kid at heart! Don't ever stop!
