Love bugs!

One of the things that I have had to get used to in the last 5 years, is the amount of bugs in Florida. They are everywhere! I had never heard of love bugs before moving here, but what a crazy thing! Every May and September, just out of the blue, the state is overcome with love bugs - seriously! Just one day! And as quickly as they come, they disappear.

You walk outside, and they fly onto you and into your house. You can't walk into a store or your car without being covered. Our back patio is covered! So this weekend the girls discovered the joy of catching these slow moving creatures. Reilly did great, she let them just hang out on her hand. Brooke mastered the pincher grip, so as you can imagine she tried to destroy the population all on her own ;-) But they were both so proud to show me every one they caught!
