Magical

We had a magical night.
The kids caught lightning bugs and put them in a jar.



But then one of them noticed that a couple of our lightning bugs kept... ahem, "wrestling".
Those two just would not cut it out!

(I blurred the pictures so you don't see the actual "wrestling" going on. What kind of blog do you think this is?")

They "wrestled" and "wrestled".
"Mom, why do they keep doing that?"

"ummm, they think it's fun to wrestle." The Man and I were trying hard to stay serious.

The lightning bug population in Kansas will be increasing soon.

hahahaha!

Yeah, my kids don't understand why the neighbor's dogs wrestle like that either.

You are so funny! I think you handled it well! LOL.

Michelle said...

Cute! I'll remember that one when the time comes I have to explain something. I miss lighting bugs, they don't have them here. It's one of the things I miss the most.

Maybe the fireflies were playing leapfrog. That is what our neighborhood dogs do. LOL

I loved catching Lightning bugs as a kid. Still would if we had them here in the desert :)

Guess even lightning bugs like to wrestle ;)

karla said...

our cats like to wrestle too. even though they are both fixed. Although sometime they play leap frog too. My favorite by far was the alpacas playing the "Alpaca Schmaka" LOL

I had never seen lightning bugs until we lived in Texas for a couple of years. They are the coolest ever! Wish I could bottle them and bring them to California.

That is really funny! They were so captivated. Animals are so curious to us, aren't they?
