Just call me Lauryn Croft, Tomb Raider

Yesterday, Lauryn decided to build a gun with the Duplo Legos. This isn't exactly a new occurrence around here. The by-product of a house full of girls and no boys is that Daddy shares his hobbies with the girls rather than his non-existent sons. Thus the girls have all built guns and swords.

So yesterday, Lauryn decided to build a gun. And not just any gun, but a shotgun! Here she is taking aim through the sites.
(For those of you who are gun aficionados, note that while she is right handed, she is aiming with her left eye. That is because she, like a couple of her sisters, is left eye dominant, which means she'll actually do better shooting left handed. Just a bit of trivia for you.)

After she pulls the trigger she then takes a couple of Legos off the top and throws them in front of her. When I asked her what she was doing she told me that she was taking the ammunition and throwing it, so she could pretend her shotgun was actually shooting.
Looks like her magazine is empty. Wait, do shotguns have magazines?
And looks like someone needs to come clean up her brass. I hope she hadn't been aiming at the baby...
Wouldn't YOU be scared if you saw this aimed at you?

Love it! Nothing more awesome than a girl with a gun. ;-) Kendall is left-eye dominant, too. So having to shoot left-handed when he went through the pistol course, Kisa kicked his butt on qualification. That's his excuse anyway! LOL
