Crawdads and Kissin’ Cousins


While out looking over the pool this morning the kids discovered a few visitors, who most likely got lost on their way to the pond or the creek. Here are some photos of the poor wayward souls –


Lest you think that this guy was hugely intimidating to us, you better see this picture, which puts him more in perspective –


And here he is staring at us from his temporary jar home, where he will stay until transported back to the pond –


But our pinchy friend wasn’t the only visitor lurking in the pool water. We also discovered these –


And look at them now! –




Isn’t that sweet? Well, I thought so too, until Sarah informed me that she posed them that way on purpose for the picture. Oh well!

A few minutes later, another friend was discovered to add to the mix –


I love their beautiful markings, but will leave the holding of them to the kids. Here’s the whole happy family –

  1. These are great! I know some folks who would cook up those crawfish and maybe even the frogs (not me!).

  2. Be careful of the frogs or you’ll have tadpoles in the pool. I loved seeing the Crawdad. We had those in our yard when I was growing up. They just dug a hole in the mud. We called them Mud Puppies.

    I think your Summer is beginning to be busy with all the social activities. You’ll have lots to post about when You get back to it.

    I usually have something simple on Friday nights, date night, so I can spend more time with Jim, usually pizza and we, too watch a movie while we eat.
    Have a fun week,
    Mama Bear

  3. Hi Mama Bear!

  4. Frog legs and crawdads-good eating!
