This little guy looks so much cuter in person. I would have loved to take better pictures, but the mosquitos are so bad that I really don't want to go outside again. It is hot and humid, a mosquito paradise. Yesterday I went to our local farmer's market and bought some soap that according to the sales person keeps mosquitos away. Since it was all organic without chemicals I was very excited. You rub it on your exposed skin and the strong peppermint smell should keep the little pests away. Didn't work with me! As soon as I was outside to take pictures for just minutes, I got attacked by hoards of mosquitos and decided, whatever pictures were in my camera, needed to do the trick.
I am ready for fall!
