It is that time of year, hunting season! As a child of a father who has hunted pretty much my whole life I know two facts when this time roles around:
- I can’t reach Dad until after dark.
- I must wear bright colors.
I also know two other facts:
- I don’t own bright colors for the NH Fall/Winter Season.
- My sons don’t like to wear bright colored hats.
My daughter and I knew it was hunting season and that we needed a bright hat to wear while playing in our backyard. Since moving to our new house we seem to spend a majority of our daylight hours in the backyard … the backyard that is surrounded by woods in nearly every direction!
We went to Ocean State Job Lots and had a look around because they always have awesome Winter hats and there we were finding a $4 hat for us, $8 total for safe backyard play!
We enjoyed our outdoor play time which was spent with Baby K and not AJ because AJ came out and ran back inside refusing to play hide n seek with us! Baby K and Ki hid behind this big tree we have in our yard and Ki hid so well that I couldn’t see her on the other side of the tree, even with her orange hat on until she ran for the house!
We had a blast, it was a fun day full of smiles and exploring! Speaking of exploring, do you know what animals eat just the apple part of an apple, as in the core and all but leave apple skins behind? We had a ton of apples gone but the critters left behind the skins ….
