Something's Bugging Me!

The calm before the storm.

First, thank you so much to all of you who helped me figure out my comment verification conundrum.  I appreciate you taking the time to help me.  I was planning on deleting the post after a few comments, but got sidetracked by an out of state soccer tournament for my youngest son.  Driving rains, heavy winds, and giant swarms of large angry gnats prevented me from responding to the comments and deleting the post between soccer games.  I was afraid that if I wasn't paying attention, I would either end up being hit by a wayward soccer ball or be carried away by a large swarm of not so friendly bugs.  In the end, our team won, so it was worth being cold, wet, and itchy.  

He is small compared to the bugs I saw.

Can you believe with all that talk about being cold, that I didn't bring a quilt with me?

Getting motivated for the championship game.

A little of the action.

  We also enjoyed our time walking along the beach the final morning of the tournament.  Our room had an ocean view, so we could enjoy the beach rain or shine.  The boys were very excited about their win, so it was a great weekend for everyone.

Because of all of the creative comments on my word verification post, I have decided not to delete it.  Thanks again for all of your help.  Blog friends are the best!

My son played competitive hockey for years and I loved, loved, loved going away for tournaments! They were so much fun. Mind you, I didn't have to deal with any bugs sitting in a very cold hockey arena all day! ;-)

Yeah for winning! Looks like a nice beach. Are the bugs truly that big?

All's well that ends well, as they say. Congratulations on the win.

What a fun (if buggy) time! So glad they won! I love the bird shot...looks like something from National Geographic.
