Three times this summer we headed over to a local park and collected grasshoppers. Whenever we got a new batch, we paroled the old ones by releasing them in the backyard.
I love grasshoppers by the way. The drink, and the insect.
Here's Junie releasing the last batch of the year with her friend Tia.
Afterwards, I took them to the park. I spent most of the time there sitting by the playground reading a book on Jack the Ripper, which I'm sure wasn't alarming to anyone at all.
