The Little Green Frog Part II: Not so Little Anymore

Remember the green frog who liked my dasies (on the stem in the background)? Well, turns out there are a million like him all over my yard. They are so gosh darn cute! We had fun with a little green frog on the deck yesterday. Tommy spotted it. then it jumped over the edge! Not to worry, it was a tree frog, with sticky legs, so it hung out on the side of the deck for a while. Tommy looked and looked at it. He was very amused. Daddy came over to get the frog back on the deck. He jumped on Daddy's foot. That was hilarious!! Tommy really liked things so far... then things took a turn for the worse. The frog jumped on Tommy's leg. He did not like that one little bit. He let out a TERRIFIED scream. Then the frog jumped off, all was right with the world again, and the little green frog moved on with his day. And Tommy moved on with his. He even bragged later "I got a frog on my leg!" He seems to forget the part where he screamed like his life was in danger, but I suppose that is all for the best. Tommy and I went an picked a cucumber, and went inside to eat it with Daddy before bed. It was delicious. I never realized that this particular vegetable could be so flavorful. Don't get me wrong, I do love cucumbers, I just never realized how truely yummy they could be. The end. I think this story would make an excellent screen play, it is riviting.

We have a TON of frogs around here too...it's crazy. When driving home, it's like old-school Frogger on crack after it rains. Fun for the kids though!
