We drove up to visit Jen and Andy and the grand boys at their summer campsite. They picked up two of the grand girls along the way..and we picked up the other grand and let her drive us to the campsite. Savannah has her permit. There is a reason I left all drivers education to Far Guy. My brake foot gets all worn out. We arrived safely.
We sat around under the trees in the light rain and had lunch ..then the sun came out.
A mama chipmunk ran through..and got Chance’s full attention. He was on his leash. Good thing too or there would have been orphan chippys.
Soon there was a big chippy and a little chippy. The mama chipmunk brought out her babies to play. One by one she got them out from under the dumpster lead them under our car then under the pontoon across the road into the safety of a deadfall (A tree that had fallen down.)
Chance was very excited.
The mama watched in the upper branches whilst her babies played. The babies were not very good climbers yet and often fell off into the brush.
Jen and I watched them for a long time. We are curious how the mama chippy “told” the first ones to stay put until she got back with everyone. As she brought them out she ran in front of them and if they didn’t follow she would go back and touch them with her nose.
The whole family was out to play.
We played a game with the grands..called “What is yours like?”. A clue is viewed by everyone except the guesser, then the guesser asks the others one by one “What is yours like?” It was great fun with lots of giggling.
We always enjoy an afternoon spent with all the grands..Far Guy and I need to buy some water rifles as a squirt gun fight broke out and we were unarmed:)
