The Rest of the Coyote Hunt

Sunday evening, the kids were getting a little restless, so Jeremy decided it would be a fun little adventure to go set a coyote trap.  It was our first pretty chilly day for the Fall, and we were in a bit of a hurry, so he scooped Sophie up, added a pair of her brothers' socks to warm her little legs, and off we went to the creek.

Peter wanted to do some exploring of his own along with John Paul, as Carter and Sophie walked with Jeremy to try to find the perfect spot.

 John Paul discovered water...and his day was complete.

The Alabama hat was a gift, by the way.  We only cheer for the Aggies!

These three came back with news that they found the perfect spot for a trap, so off we went to set it.

 Well, some people set it, while others wrote letters in the sand.
And, this little gal did get to hang out outside for a bit but was pretty content just waiting in the truck.
 The boys at work...

Then, the waiting game began.  The next day, all the boys went back out to check on things, and they discovered that their trap wasn't quiet sensitive enough...a coyote had come and gone, leaving a bit of a trail behind, but the trap was still set. 

Oh well, better luck next time!
