My 3 year olds first snake And a date with the wife

Post by simpleyork » March 12th, 2012, 11:18 am

Last summer I took my oldest boy out to look for Short horned lizards this is what he found and caught by himself
we did find some horned lizards as well but that was all filmed on our video camera

he is most like me of all my kids

After having our 3rd son I decided to take my wife out on a date

She wanted to catch a horny toad

Jeeze, she had to have 3 kids before you would take her on a date, and then you drag her out into the desert?! :crazyeyes: Hopeless romantic, indeed. :roll:

Just kidding of course. :lol: You have a beautiful family :thumb:

Very cool. I've got lots of pics of my girls hefting big gophers like that. They are always fun to show adult men who are afraid of snakes.
That's great your wife was up for the horned lizard hunt. I burnt my wife out on such things long ago though we still enjoy lots of hiking as a family.
Take my advice and don't overdo it.

Over all my wife would rather go duck hunting then herping but it's nice when she does want to go.

That's some hardcore herping when you have a baby in a sling. I can tell "the force" is strong with your 3 yr old. That hat is a telltale sign.

My wife will go out with us as long as we're not on a marathon 100 degree day snake gig. She still tweaks on the night road cruising though, we never pull off far enough to satisfy her H.R. safety background.
