Catching Fireflies

We headed out in the wagon this evening for a picnic at the park and firefly catching. There is a great firefly hangout right down the street from us. We had to wait right until sundown and the fireflies started coming out. They were everywhere. It was so much fun to watch the boys look for the fireflies and run after them. They would get so excited to see them light up. We didn't have Daddy with us, so it was a little more difficult. I am sure he is a firefly catching expert. We did capture three fireflies in a jar. We brought them home to show Daddy when he got home from work. Then, we will let them go back to their firefly hangout.
