When we got there, I had a nice look around:
|"Oh, yeah, Mom! Lots of cool stuff out here!"|
There were cool prairie grasses shooting off their sparklers:
And oodles of sunflowers!
There was a cool front about to move in, so the clouds/cool front made for a great backdrop for everything:
Let's go in for a closeup!
Let's see what else we can see!
|"Hey! Come back here, little fella!"|
I was trying to make a new friend, but he hopped over to the sidewalk.
|My grasshopper friend|
Mom accused me of trying to eat him. Is she crazy?!!? Sure, I'll snarf down a cicada faster than you can say, "NoNoZimmieNoNo!" -- but a grasshopper? No way. I was trying to make friends with him!
For some odd reason, Mom wasn't convinced, and I was put on a "short leash" for the rest of our adventure.
|"Catch you next time, Grasshopper!"|
Can't blame a guy for trying, right?
Thanks for coming out to the prairie with us! Hope you had as much fun as I did!
