Froggy Fun

The girls found two frogs (or are they toads???) in the backyard today and spent over an hour playing with them. Either the frogs were incredibly patient with the girls or not the brightest frogs in the pond. I would think they could have hopped away if they really wanted to but they hung out with them fairly easily.
The girls were quite insistent that Nora's frog was a leopard frog and Madison's was a spring peeper. Not sure where those identifications came from but there was no arguing with them.

The girls especially enjoyed playing with them in the pool. They taught them "tricks" like swimming through a hoop. Then the frogs would climb up their legs to get out of the water. They even took them down the little water slide into the pool.No frogs were hurt in the making of this blog post. Well, they may be emotionally scarred for life but they were able to easily hop away on their own free will. I would recommend they hop far far away!!

Ewwwww! I hate frogs. These pictures make me cringe. Our backyard is a swamp and is infested with them. Last year I probably saw 1,000. YUCK!

So cute! I'm not sure if they would have hopped away safely at our house. :0)
