More Adventures

Phew!  I am tired.  Still.  From this past week-end.  LOL!  We had a lot of fun at the camp out.  The boys learned about first aid and astronomy.  All the kids had a blast playing cops and robbers and flash light tag and climbing on hills of dirt that they called mountains.  It was well worth the trip!

And when we got home early Sunday morning there was a squirrel running and running around in circles inside our trampoline.  I have no idea how long it had been inside the net of the trampoline and have absolutely no clue why it didn't just climb up the net.  They climb up our screen enclosure all the time.

Anyway, we all ran outside to get a closer look and, well, boys will be boys.  Yep, my son decided it would be fun to jump on the trampoline with the squirrel.

After about three or four bounces, my daughter started screaming like she was the one being tortured and then the squirrel found its way out and ran off to go on to live a happy--well, at least a happier life.

Hey, our lives are non-stop adventure.  Why shouldn't the squirrel's life be an adventure too?

Happy Creative Time!

I did too, Caz, that's why I made him stop. Besides, I was afraid it might bite him.

Too bad you have no excitement or anything fun in your life phew! :) That is hilarious, and sounds like one of my boys- the one that makes me laugh, cry and shake my head all at the same time. Thanks for the fun story.
