The Puzzle

So the plan yesterday was to get some pictures of Lacey playing with the Holee Roller.  So to keep Coulee away, I brought a "baby ball" to keep her entertained.  But do you think I could engage Lacey with the Holee Roller?  Not a chance.  So I started to worry we would lose baby ball in the snow or grass so I decided to pop it into the Holee Roller.  Ha!  What fun (for me anyway!).

Coulee was determined to find a way to get to the ball...

This is what happens when you throw a toy she doesn't want... She just ignores it.  It took her a few seconds to realize that the ball was inside and that in fact, she did want it.  LOL

Back to the annoying puzzle.

I love the ones when she is staring intently inside the bigger ball.  She was thinking hard about what to do.

And then her frustration and annoyance set in.

Back to trying to puzzle it out.

Willing it to escape...

Pleading for help.

And then back to thinking.

First thing after breakfast this morning she was at it again.  Poor thing. Without opposable thumbs (or eating her way through the Holee Roller) she's never gonna figure it out.

PS - All the slightly wonky compositions are due to shooting from the hip.  The only one where I was actually looking through the camera was the "pleading" one.  And before you ask, yes, I got lots of missed shots.  But I took enough to make up for it.  :)
