I took Xavi hunting today. He seemed to enjoy it. We didn’t stay out too long, since he was yawning and naptime was just around the corner.
He seemed to get the general idea about what we were doing. “Shoot the ducks ducks and geese.” He was just fine with the gunfire — giggling when we shot the guns. “Bang!” And he took a cue from us and crouched, hid, and whispered when the ducks were nearby.
But he didn’t like the mud and grass too much.
The duck and goose calls were his favourite, though. Quack quack!
