Summer's End

With Fall around the corner, the Dreams in Fiber Household headed South for a little R&R over Labor Day weekend. This provided the hubby with a chance to impart some of his grasshopper catching knowledge to little man.

There was a bit of rain now and again but that didn't stop little miss. Fortunately things cleared up for a fire one evening.

Critters were caught and we even found a new-to-us species of spider. Evidently this is a "crab spider" and they come in different colors (and some change color). Truth be told though, I don't care what color they are, they creep me out.

More proof that spider season is upon us. I don't even want to know what this one is. I'm pretty sure it's no longer with us....

Over the course of the weekend I met several new grasshopper friends and even invited a toad for tea. One does want to be polite :)

It was nice to see the hummingbirds out and about as well.

A little bit of minion for you. You don't really get many opportunities to take a picture of little man without something in front of his face these days...

Hope the rest of your Summer is nice and relaxing.

And if you happen to be out mowing, don't try to mow over one of these! Just ask my FIL...

LHF!! How fun! Those shops were so captivating as a kid. I hope they still are.

Is the lawnmower OK? :)
