Not quite Barry the Bee...

Perhaps the Bee Movie has taught the trio no fear of bugs.

I, on the other hand, still harbor huge anxiety attack inducing fears of bugs, especially bees.

We decided to put the kids in the pool so that they could float and watch Drew light fireworks and hopefully not catch palm trees on fire.

Dominic is sitting on the sun deck and grabs for what appears to be a lightening bug. Or some kind of bug- they are all creepy and crawly anyway- does it really matter?

Then creepy bug morphs into what appears to be a hornet.

What do I do? Scream like a mental patient and all but cannonball out of the pool and down the street. Dominic is trying to catch it, and gets stung.


But he took it much better then I did, and with a little bit of Benedryl and some kisses on his boo boo, took his wound like a champ.

ouch!!!! Jasmine is the only one in my house with past stings. Her lip swelled up so badly from trying to eat a bee. For those who don't know me that would be my dog, not child, eating a bee.

Just got back from SD by the way. i'll fill you in on the trip when you have time.
