Before the white stuff graced us this year our girls collected hundreds of acorns. They spread them, piled them and buried them - "chickmunk helpers" they called themselves. The wagon overflowed with all their hard work!
He's trying to escape the camera!
Perched next to the yellow crate that is FULL of acorns.
Just Hanging on the bridge!Looking Right at me!!
(Oh - and quick props to my totally amazing husband for building this structure for our girls and -apparently - for the squirrels!)
But- far and away the best part of this day was The Comedian's little chant. Her preschool class, as it happens, adopted the ...wait for it... Gray Squirrel as their class mascot this year.
So, this is what I hear as I'm snapping pictures...
***** GRAY SQUIRREL - GRAY SQUIRREL - SHAKE YOUR BUSHY TAIL
GRAB A NUT BETWEEN YOUR TOES ... WRINKLE UP YOUR LITTLE NOSE
AND.... SHAKE YOUR BUSHY TAIL ****
