A little froggy on our stoop!

So, one morning last week we received a knock on our door that turned out to be my in-laws. You know that sudden panic that ensues when you realize you have visitors but are sporting nothing more than a nursing bra, boxer shorts and a bathrobe? Well, I had it!

Luckily, my husband was there to greet them at the door and all they did was drop off an old ice-cream container with a little inhabitant inside- a frog! They must have found it on their property and thought that R-Man would enjoy watching it. We toyed with the idea of keeping it, but knew it would take more of an investment of time and money than we really wanted to give it. So, instead, we decided to go release it at a small river near our house later that evening. As soon as my husband opened the lid it bounded out to freedom! This little froggy was no fool!

We were able to watch him splash in the water for about a minute before he bounded into the weeds and was gone.

R-Man was a bit bewildered by the loss of his frog, but quickly got over it when he spotted the nearby playground!

Oh the adventures that a little unexpected visitor can bring to your day!
