Whoppers and Beasties
These boys of mine teach me a thing or too,especially when it comes to doing 'boyish' stuff like throwing sticks...
Today we went to the forest,it was the Robin Hood Festival,so a lot of Robin Hood Theme things was going on ~ jousting,archery etc
we had a wander through through the woods and that's where the 'beasties and whoopers' started
We wandered well off the main path and into the forest
And Chipmunk decided to throw sticks
All I could hear was
"Look at this beastie"
And then Chipmunk would launch a stick into the trees
and another stick and another and another
This got Sharky interested...
and he too began to search out interesting sticks ~ the bigger the better ~ 'whoppers and beasties'
And then Chipmunk found a real whopper,it was infact a tree root and it was stuck in the ground.
"There's no way you can get that one" I said.
Er wrong think again mum...
Yep they got it out and wanged it deep into the ferny undergrowth
We nearly missed the jousting
But the stick throwing was precious indeed ~ boys and sticks!
