Bug Catching

Well, here's our new little thing we like to do. It all started when cousin Kennedy started carrying around "rolly pollys" aka potato bugs, in a cup.
 Darlene bought these bug catching kits at the dollar store, and I have to say, it was definitely a dollar well spent. They came with a little net, some tweezers to pick up bugs, and of course these bug catchers  with a magnifying glass on top. Look at that good daddy, helping his girls find snails.
 Here's Rylee showing off her snails.

 The girls have been way into this, we take them with us on walks, and we get all kinds of bugs, it's fun and they love it. And I love that it seems to be making them not afraid of bugs.
Happy bug catching!

I should totally get one of those! My kids would love it! I wish all dollar stores would carry the same stuff. I love the pic of Rylee hugging the bunny. Too cute!

Also, I get my running shoes wherever is cheapest :) But get fitted for them by a good running specialty store first. Then just go online and find them cheaper. lol. always has good deals!

That's a good idea. It reminds me of Grandma always trying to show us how amazing bugs were. I should get one for Jaren who loves to pick up bugs whenever I show them - even spiders which grosses me out, and frankly may be dangerous considering where we live, but overall it's good that they're not afraid of bugs I imagine!
