But that also means that it's time for the bugs to come out. I'm not a fan of bugs. Some are cool, and I actually like them. You know, butterflies, ladybugs, praying mantis. Those bugs are awesome.
But we have weird bugs out here in Falcon. And by weird I mean horrifically scary and gross.
Like this bastard:
This is a sun scorpion. AKA wind scorpion and camel spider. Not really a true scorpion OR spider. They are freaking nasty. And mean! Here, let me show you it's jaws:
WTF????? What the hell kind of bug needs jaws like that?!?
And then we have these:
The Colorado potato beetle. Now, this guy looks pretty unassuming. But it's not fun when you're enjoying a nice adult beverage on your back porch as the sun is going down and a whole freaking swarm of them fly at you!!!!! And by swarm I mean 100-200 of the little bastards. Luckily they're usually only around for 1-2 weeks out of the year.
Because I hate them.
And of course, spiders. We have a ton of funnel weaver spiders here. Now, these guys aren't a threat to people or pets, but come on. They're spiders. And icky. And they get HUGE. And they move freaking fast.
I'm sure some of you are creeped out now. Well, serves you right. I have to deal with these in my own backyard. You might as well share my misery.

Here's Ayden playing Wii bowling. Which he loved. And now of course, he wants a Wii.
Jumping rope with his BFF Sarah! Watching a 3 year old and 4 year old jump rope is pretty darn entertaining.
Here's a great action shot. Look at the height! Look at the coordination! Ignore the car in the background . . .

Meet Scarlet O'Hare. She looks pretty stately. And gothic. And full of awesome.
Here are Crock and Allie - conjoined crocodile/alligator twins. Are you starting to see why I love this shop so much?
That's right. A two-headed baby blackbird. You can't deny the cuteness. Trust me. Don't even try.
OMG ADORABLE!! This is Jan - a needle felted bunny. Who also happens to be full of awesome.

Thank you Captain Obvious. No, really. I totally thought it would be popular with gophers. Glad you cleared that up.

This print is just pure awesome! Why? One, it's a boston terrier. Two, he's kinda zombie-ish. You can't go wrong with that combo.
This print is titled Pink Leaves. I find it very calming.
I'm digging Bat Girl. So forlorgn . . .
And of course I'd have to include Tools of a Trade Nurse . . . . .being a nurse myself and all.
