On Saturday at 1 p.m, my husband will be taking his petite daughter-in-law, Katie, to the shooting range. Her request. On Saturday at 1 p.m., I will be taking our son, Katie's tall husband, shopping for a new overcoat for winter, an early Christmas present. So, Katie will be shooting a gun at targets with her father-in-law, and Josh will be shopping with his mother. That just doesn't sound right at all.

Yes, photos are a must. Our son is tall and has long arms, so trying a coat on is necessary to get a good fit.

I think fun will be had by all. Josh is my favorite person to hang with, but Katie is wonderful to spend time with too!! I could push the grandbaby thing, just for fun.

Katie loves to try new things, and she asked my husband if he would take her. Josh is tall and has long arms, so getting a coat that fits him requires trying it on.

@Corbin5 .. But I would rather the husband and wife went together...and the entire family then went for shooting ... now this sounds like daughter in law wants to ask your husband for a loan large enough for down payment, and is kind of sure she won't get it if you are around. Kidding ok?

Well, since Katie comes from a family all girls, this will be her first try. My husband took her to her first baseball game in Chicago, too, along with our son who has been many times.

Katie asked my husband if he would take her to the shooting range since she has never been. I told Josh, due to his tall, lanky frame, that the only way we can get an overcoat with the sleeves long enough is to try it on. We are all short, but somewhere back in the gene pool, there must have been a tall guy!

Josh wants some mom time and Katie wants some dad time(in this case dad in law) He must have been thrilled that Katie asked him to take her to the shooting range.

That is a strange circumstance. Is she getting a permit to carry?

No, Katie would never get a permit to carry. My husband has one. Katie just wants to give it a try. Katie had never been to a baseball game either, and my husband took her along with our son to her first baseball game in Chicago. She loved it. Katie is one of three girls, and I suppose her dad never asked his girls to go to a game.

Well, since Katie comes from a family of all girls, my husband has introduced her to things he has done with our son. Katie really likes my husband, and she enjoys learning new things from him. As for Josh, an overcoat for his tall frame requires trying on many to get one that fits.

Well, our son has been to the range with his dad, but Katie comes from a family of all girls, and she just wants to see what the experience is like. My husband also took Katie to her first baseball game, the Chicago Cubs. As for Josh, he hates shopping, but I am making him go with me since he is tall and finding one that fits his long arms is a must. Hope he can handle it.
