ps. for a liitle fashion update jeff was in fact wearing white socks and sandals but he is so genuinely happy to see bugs and birds that we can forgive his lack of fashion sense!!
Our day started at about 500 in the morning. Dad hopped in the shower and i tried to get a little more sleep afetr a restless night. We all meet downstairs at about 600 and suprisingly dad and i were there first. Dad ate a muffin and some juice but all i could manage to eat was an apple that upset my stomach. At 700 dad and i followed jeff, steve, his son alex and mehai to meadow creek. Dad taught me how to catch flies and then put them in kill jars. Im not trying to brag or anything but i think im a natural!!!!!.We spent about an hour and a half there and then headed for the next destination Cherry creek. The drive up to meadow creek was rediculous to say the very least, we were bouncing around driving through water, it was crazy !!! on the way to cherry creek jeff stopped their van and he hops out with a net and steve hopes out with a camara. Jeff caught a bug that he never caught before and he came to show us through the car window and he was so happy it was sad and cute at the same time!! (ps the green book on bugs dad has is written by steve the guy were with. he wrote it and took all the pictures for it!!) We stopped a couple of times on the way to cherry creek to do a little bit of speed collecting. It was SO FUN!!! When we got to cherry creek we all split up and i caught the same bug that jeff was so excited to collect i even put it in the kill jar which is harder that it sounds because we have to get him to go in a jar that smaller than him without crushing him. We stayed there until 330 which was plenty enough considering wed been going since 700. dad and i headed to walmart for some supper. we were starving because all i had was a muffin and power bars (that were gross) and dad had three rotten plums and some power snacks. We got chicken and pasta salads and headed home to eat it. right now dad is sleeping before he has to head to his meeting and im just unwinding. It was a fun day and i really liked the collecting. Unfortunatly by noon i was very tired and hungry so i lost interest around that time and went and walked around a little. Dad had a great time too. We love and miss you and heidi both!!xoxooxoxoox
