Photo Explosion






Here are some of the fascinating creatures we've been finding at the campground (Whispering Oaks CG) we're staying at in Story City, Iowa. The bat is my favorite! I love bats! I was walking over to the laundry to wash a load of diapers and noticed this little darling sitting on a hosta. We grabbed a pair of Dad's thick gloves and have made a dark little place for it to sleep for the day. We're wondering what it'll do tonight. I'd like to create a custom made leash for him and have him buzz around our bus at night gobbling up mosquitos for us! S'pose that's do-able?!? ;)
The water way you see is right by our bus, and that's where the boys spend their days catching and releasing tad-pole like things.

Hi Karen,

What cool days you're having! I have to say I don't share your love of bats - too many bats visiting the inside of our house a couple years back! Now I'm going to have to look up bats because I always thought that bats found out during the day were rabid, but I'm sure you and the boys weren't handling a rabid bat!

Great photos! Congrats. on doing something those cute little guys will surely fondly remember all their lives -- well Sage might be a little too young to remember, but otherwise... :)
