Photostory Friday: froggy friday

This week the kids and I are in OH at my in-laws. Earlier in the week, we headed to Dawes Arboretum. Despite the cooler temps, the kids and their cousins had best time running along the trails. At the end of one part, there was a little bridge they could follow. It led to a little island. Will started throwing pine cones into the water. The little cousins had to imitate Will. Cousin S would crack himself up laughing with each splash in the water.
As they got a bit closer to the water, they spotted a very sluggish frog. I guess he came out of hibernation just a wee bit early!

What a cool discovery- and a great shot of it! I must say , I thought this story was going to end with a bigger splash as the kids were all creeping closer to the water... maybe I'm just to used to Mackenna's "mishaps" around water. :)

oooo he is delightful. I wish I had been there to see him. I love large frogs but rarely get a chance to see them.
