PSF - Gone Buggy!'

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

A few nights ago as I was bringing groceries in from the car, I noticed a distinct humming sound that was growing louder and louder. A surprisingly familiar sound that I recognized from my childhood, growing up in North Little Rock, Arkansas, to be, what we called, the mosquito truck.

Sure enough, I saw the flashing lights in the distance and immediately headed inside to avoid being fogged with bug spray.

I guess bugs and mosquitoes are pretty prevalent down in these parts.

Must be a southern thing. :)

Bugs are DEFINITELY a southern thing. It wouldn't be a southern summer without ants and mosquitos!!! Although in my opinoin, the use of the bug spray is one of the reaons there are not as many lightening bugs as there used to be! Have you seen any in the early evenings? There used to be SO many when I was a kid! (I grew up in Southern VA)

Love the pics! The kids are growing fast!
