Happy Easter! Had a day where I relived part of my childhood. Every Easter my sister and I would get new butterfly nets, and after lunch my parents would take us to Crow Hill to hunt for salamanders. Well today our kids all got “bug hunting kits” and after lunch my parents took all of us to Crow Hill. We thought for SURE we wouldn’t find anything. But Dad, true to form, found a HUGE tadpole, a fish (yes, he caught it in the net and we put it in one of the containers for about a minute (they held water), and a salamander!
The boys, only 4, were more interested in throwing rocks into the water, and junior fell and got a great scratch from a stick near his eye (yikes), but my sister and I were suitably impressed that dad can still gather creatures on demand.
