food for a fox hunt

DSC_0047

This afternoon at 5.30pm, I heard a rustling in the pantry. 

It was the instigator of a proclaimed "major fox hunt" (pictured above) sourcing fruit and sultanas and crackers "in case we get hungry hunting the fox." 

I pointed out that our chicken noodle soup was on the stove and we'd be eating in twenty minutes. No snacks. Good luck with the fox hunt though. 

And off they went. My two (I was wearing the smallest in the backpack otherwise she would have been in amongst it) and the two from next door. Fast friends. I don't usually follow these four around but I suddenly didn't want to see them off on another adventure I'd forget.

They were geared up.

Apparently armed with essential Bakugan and Beyblades. Doom to all foxes.

There were no reported sightings of any fox, but the hollering freaked the geese right out.

When I was a child there were 4 of us who used to do trails, 2 to set the trails the other 2 to follow. It was great fun & would sometimes take at least a day. Taking snacks along with us was a ‘must’!

It all looks like a lot of fun. A little bit Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. However they always had snacks!

May have been better to use the chicken in the fox hunt.

Maybe you could send them my way – I could do with some little fox hunters! Oh, to be that age again…

What darling pictures! And what an adventure! You lost me with Bakugan and Beyblades ! I’m guessing one is a “backpack” and the other possibly binoculars? Could you translate for this American? : ^ )

I’ll provide all the snacks they can eat if they will help me hunt down the pocket gophers sucking my yellow beans down in their holes, one at a time!
