hunting butterflies
(offering flowers upon a rake as a lure)...

and then chasing them.
with a net, this time.

"Trevy... I'll betcha a dollar I can knock you over with a feather."
"Deal!"

  1. My daughter, too, spends 80% of her time rigging up crazy inventions. It's like living with a mad scientist. I love it. :)
