If you give a squirrel an ice cream cone...

Greenfield Elementary third graders enjoyed their end of the year school picnic on June 13. It was a beautiful day for the festivities.

Every picnic should include a trip to Ben & Jerry's and upon returning to the park with treats in hand, one third grader made the mistake of leaving his ice cream cone at the foot of a tree. A bold squirrel made his way to the bottom of the tree, snatched the cone and made his way back up to revel in his ice cream delight. Hopefully that didn't spoil the third grader's day...

This reminds me of children book author Laura Numeroff's series-- "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie," "If You Give a Pig a Pancake,"..."a Moose a Muffin..."

If you give a squirrel [an opportunity to have some ice cream] chances are [he's going to take it]...

All of you ice cream, Congress Park-goers have been forewarned...
