Snake Hunters

On Saturday morning, Gabriel announced that he wanted to hunt snakes. 
I interpreted this as I wanna poke around in the grass for awhile
We live in a gated apartment complex, with landscaping (shudder). 
It's not exactly the mountain wilds.
So I agreed.
Which would have been fine.
If Gabriel had done ANYTHING but immediately find three snakes.

Gabriel was thrilled.  He has, after all, proven himself to be a master snake hunter.

I was somewhat less enthused.

Reflected

If your kid asks you to go snake hunting?
Do yourself a favor.
Don't.
