It is amazing how much fun you can have going for a walk with a hubby, 2 kids and a dog in the rain! Mollie is always full of surprises and the kids are always making me laugh out loud.
A few weeks ago we took Mollie up to the park with her first frisbee to see what she would make of it. The children were not to fussed about going as it was a bit rainy and nearly getting dark. Eventually they decided to come along for a walk.
Mollie learned how to play fetch with her frisbee straight away. She loved running after it. She also got the idea of what to do straight away. She loved it so much she did not want anyone to take it at first. The she realised you have to let someone take it, to throw it for her!
Could you imagine the horror on Mollies face when someone chucks her frisbee and it got stuck up a tree? Cough, cough, the husband!!
She was running around like crazy looking for it!?!
Looking up at the sky, wondering when it would come back down.
We looked around for ages trying to find sticks to throw at it to try and move it but it was hooked on to a branch. So high up. No way of moving it!?!
Then I went into the woods and found a big broken off part of tree to see if this would reach it.
Then we found another branch and kept trying to move the tree, but the frisbee would not move one little bit.
Even team work could not moved it.
Then my husband came up with an idea. They turned the broken tree around and try the “hook a duck” style approach to it.
Ta-Da it work!! Mollie got her frisbee back!! Just before it got dark.
My husband said after ” no need for the gym now””
We have 2 frisbees now; just in case one gets stuck in a tree again!!
