Rib bit Rib bit says our Little Friend....

August already! Wow times flies when you are having a good summer off of work. I can barely believe that my dear hubby will be going back to work in just 1 more day. Makes me sad. It has been so nice to wake up next to him in the morning and fall asleep with him every night. I am really going to miss that. At least I will be able to do more scrappy stuff... don't know if that is really worth the price though. I haven't done much scrappy stuff this last month because he has been home and we have been gone so much, and I do miss it, but still...

Okay, enough of that... So, yesterday we were going to go to the lake, but instead we just hung out and really did nothing. I know so exciting hu? Matteo is about to kill me with this whole potty training thing. It is really tough. I keep telling myself... it just takes time, but SERIOUSLY! I am beginning to think that he is getting worse, not better. And I know he is afraid to poop on the potty! So, I guess we keep trying... and keep doing the laundry.

Any who, so last night as I am getting things ready, as we are now going to the lake today... I hear my hubby call me from outside, "Come here quick!" I think, okay, Matteo is playing "hide and go poop" and he thinks it's funny. What I got was this little visitor...

I have no idea how he got in our backyard. Maybe he was someones pet, and just got away... I don't know. The thing is that I did NOT want him to stay in our backyard. So, we decided to catch him and take him to a local park where there is a river and a pond and let him go. Hubby caught him and put him in this bucket. Matteo loved him... in the bucket.

He repeatedly said, "Rib bit Rib bit Fwoggy" while patting his leg as if he was calling a dog. Man he can be cute sometimes.

So, we take him to the park and the boys dump him on the grass.

He doesn't look to happy about this....

Maybe, it is Matteo's little extra nudge that he didn't like so much.

Finally, with a bit of help, he made it into the lake. Well, just to the edge, but at least he is not in my backyard. (You can barely see him. He is right in front of Matteo's hands on the bottom ledge. He looks like a rock there, but you can see the yellow strip down his back.)

Well, we are off to the lake. I have a layout for you too, but I will have to get it up when we get back... that's all the time I have this morning. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Hey - that looks like a Bufo Toad. They are fun - they keep the bugs out of the garden :) They love living in the mud, so he was probably hibernating and you didn't know he was there :). That's the dumb thing my dog picked up one night and they are VERY poisonous. Dumb dog.
