You need to guess what I'm holding and then I'll show you okay? :)
Just for fun, here's something else I caught. :) But then it flew away....
the lad has a friend with whom he will be sharing critter pics. The site is called Wild Forest.
"MOM!, tell Brock about my toads!" was the request earlier this week.
So finally tonight I got pictures of two of them.
I had five toads. Four small ones, and one big one.
Toads eat bugs. They like it when it's raining.
We found three of the toads in a flowerpot mom had by the gate.

the lad's dialogue
Picture One: This is the first type of this particular spider I've seen, I don't know what type it is. It is an orb-weaver.
Picture Two: This is the first walking stick I've ever caught. There are NOT slow, they are very fast.
Picture Three: This is one of the fastest spiders in the world. This is a wolf spider. Sometimes they bite but it is possible to deal with it. This is pretty much the biggest wolf spider I've ever seen.
We caught a BIG toad too, and brought it home. It escaped last night so we didn't get a picture for you. It was a big toad, the regular kind.
We just spent two weeks away from our home. We spent them camping.
The first week we went to Fanshawe Park in London, this is a normal place for us to go. Close to home, easy access pool, able to visit Gramma, and just a nice place to relax and be able to invite friends out to come and visit us. The lad went fishing with Dad and some friends. Bug hunting, swimming, fishing, hiking, learning to bike, and such like activities filled our days. We had friends come up on two separate days. We went out one day to a bug event - a fellow set up a big display of pinned insects and some spiders. The lad was able to ask questions and to learn a few things.
The second week we went up to Bronte. Part of my plan was to visit the Ontario Science Centre and to go the ROM, but the weather was simply so lovely, and the lads came down with summer colds so it seemed easier and more restful to just kick back around the trailer and the pool. We visited with Friends on afternoon at their place and then had a cousin and family come up for a visit around the pool. it was a good time all round. on Sunday we went to Bronte Harbour. The lad caught a really cool spider that he'd never seen before. We did some fishing and saw some sand sculptures.

Revamped the set up a bit
After three rainy days at Fanshawe I thought I'd revamp the kitchen set up a bit.
We always bring our easy up to have a set place to sit out of the sun and potential rain, This week I decided to set up the kitchen inside the tent to see how that might work. We needed to work out where to put the barbeque as neither Jim or I wanted to have the smoke from the bbq inside the tent so we set it up outside.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
