Tis the Season


We have been spending a lot of time at the pond the past few days. Watching the wildlife, catching newts, salamanders and tadpoles. The frogs hang out along the edge of the pond and as you walk towards them the jump in. Yesterday one didn't jump. It just hung out. G touched it and it hopped a few inches away and again stopped. Not much later we realized a second had joined her. Again, if touched they didn't go far. The call of spring mating must be strong to pretty much ignore boy children and their antics.

I'm jealous! We almost never see frogs around here, and when we do manage to find them, they're only as big as my thumb, if that.

Interesting that the frogs ignored the kids! Animals can be single-minded, though. Looks like you're all having a busy spring!

The party Sounded great and the cake was so cute! the kids all look so happy it must have been a wonderful day.

I love the picture of the frogs too our whole family loves to watch the tadpoles near the river turn into frogs/toads. since its not a pond we usualy see small toads and G can spend hours catching them.

What a wonderful life!
