'Hopper Hunting.

Eric: When it is hot and the grass is dried out, we get lots of grasshoppers.

Flynn: We like to hunt them out but I don't know why I look under the grass mower because they like the sun not the shade. Maybe I will find them under there one day.

Eric: If you see them you have to grab them quick before they hop off again.

Flynn: Hey! Get off my back. I'm meant to be eating you, not giving you a piggy back.

  5. Hoppers are fun to hunt. They even get in our house sometimes and I get to hunt them inside too.
    By the way Flynn, black must be the new gray from what you said.

  10. Wow you are both such awesome hunters - it is so cool that you have so many cool things to go after! And wow, grasshoppers are hard to catch - our mom can't even do it when one gets in the house (which lucky for her isn't often!)

  21. When you find them, do you crunch them very quickly or let them "hop" around in your mouth first? (Our human says, "Eeewwwwww, yuck!") ;-P

  22. Like you, I hunt insects and lizards, but I don't eat them. I prefer my wet food anyday.

  27. Morning Eric and Flynn,
    You two know how to have fun. I've never actually hunted for them outside but every so often one gets in the house. Boys those things are quick and hop high. Mom knows they are in the house when I get that intent stare and my bottom lip quivers and a little squeak comes out...only thing is I don't tell her where they are.
    Madi and Mom

  33. We've never seen a real 'hopper. Thank you for letting us live vicariously through you.

  34. We know why you're checking under the grass mower: mousies! Hoppers can be great fun but hardly anything can best a nice succulent mousie.
    Enjoy your adventures,dear boys. We "innies" can only dream.
