Did the darn bugs eat you guys up too?

We did our little fireworks outside and about a quarter of the way through them we had to run inside. Even with bug stuff on. I think all that rain did it!

But I still love my rain.

Girl, they WERE terrible. I would reach down to get one off of me and feel like I was scrapping 10 more off with it. It did help to spray, but they were still there. Yep, I think the rain did it. I was just SO HAPPY that the rain stopped. We would have all been so upset if we couldn't pop our fireworks...had waited all day long to do it. We did do some earlier in the day..those where the kids like to watch them fall back down like the parachutes and some other little things we had. They also like the smoke bombs in the daylight.
Anyway, we had a great time.
Oh, and by the way, I loved the message on my machine last week when you all were at Petco with the little...what was it that you were enjoying so much. We had JUST gotten home from getting groceries or I would have hurried up there to see what you were enjoying so much. The excitment in your voice was PRICELESS. We truely just forgot to grow up, didn't we?

Sorry the bugs were so bad. I hate biting bugs. But I'm glad you had a good time anyway!

They normally swarm us here too, but surprisingly they weren't bad at all. The smoke usually keeps them away, so they must have been really bad for you guys. At least you had a good time.

They were so bad! Sabrina and I just couldn't take it anymore and we headed in with the kids. And we watched the big ones from the car. It was so bad I was looking for some mud to roll around in.

I don't think this will be a sportsman paradise this summer. What with all the nasty bugs nipping at you.

Oh gosh Sherrie, you have to go and look at the little tiny Chameleon! He is like the size of you pinky! Your kids would love him so much. I begged Mattmos to buy him for me. But he said no!
