Cricket has way too many hobbies, just like her mom. Her favorites include chilling on the front porch with her dad, digging holes in her back yard alongside her best friend Kip, and chasing and catching animals small and large. She once caught a possum and brought it inside to show her mom, but the possum was still alive and started running around her mom’s house. Sneaky possums!
