Trapper in the Making

I saw Emily doing something over by the trees in our backyard yesterday so I asked her what she was doing.

She decided she was going to trap a chipmunk. First she dug a hole.

Then she put a flower pot down in the hole.

Then she covered it up with branches and leaves.

She had it all hooked up with a string over the tree branch. I didn't really have the heart to tell her that 1) she didn't need the string and 2) a chipmunk would climb right back out.

She's a trapper in the making! :-)
