Snakes, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails... and Frogs!!!

So the other day, Sean and Ayden were outside mowing the lawn, Sean origanlly had put Ayden on his shoulders to mow and keep track of Ayden at the same time, but of course, there is no way Ayden would stand for 2 hours of walking in circles (did I mention we have way too much grass). Needless to say Ayden got to get down to play and Sean continued mowing. I few minutes after Ayden had recieved his freedom he comes walking over to Sean holding something in his hands, Sean looks down and sees this poor little frog, whose eyes are about ready to pop right out of the sockets from Ayden holding on to it so tight!! They played with the frog for awhile and then tried to let it go in the pond by our house, but Ayden had a complete melt down when he saw his frog getting away, so Sean had to re-catch the frog, which was not an easy task (we still have no idea how our son who is not even two years old managed it), and made his way to the pet store for a little froggy house and crickets. Ayden is obsessed with his frog now and has to say goodnight to it before bed and look at it 5 times a day, I think he's trying to break me in for a dog someday!!
