Crouching and Crabbing

Remember this lovely photo from last week?

Well, do you have any idea what my sweet girl was messing with?
Only one of her favorite things ever.

I came down to the beach and she said:
Mama! Quick come here!
You’ve got to see this!
Me: ????
Lo: DON’T STEP ON ANY SHELLS OR ANY HOLES…they are all hermit crabs!

{can you see the video? I can on ONE of my computers, but not the other}
Yes, there were at least a bajillion of them. All cute and special…all lacking free will.

Did you know that if you drop a piece of lettuce on the ground, you can start a hermit crab civil war?

You can.

Then I forced her to stop messing with them so I could get some good silhouette photos.
I’m a mean one~~~~Mr. Grinch.

Lolo starts her 2nd year of college today; surprisingly she is not majoring in Marine Biology OR posing.

  1. I disappear for a week and you change your blog! I like it! Hermit crabs…not so much, photo of the girls – GREAT. I can't believe the second year of college is already here. Geez


  2. Today must be back-to-school day everywhere! My middle niece is starting her 2nd year of high school, the oldest niece starts her first day of college, and Stud starts his 2nd year of college like Lo. Big day today!!Your crabs are cute. (and don't pretend you haven't heard THAT a million times!)


  3. Crabbing -that's what the boys say I do in the morning – or is that crabby? I love playing with ocean things and am a wee bit jealous that I wasn't there with you – what a great way to spend time on the beach! and now I'll know to take lettuce with me.


  4. Things at the beach –like the crabs–are so much fun to watch. Being at the beach is almost as great as hiking deep in the woods.. So much to see and do!!!!Great silhouette photos.. Four beautiful girls!!!(I would not want to see a silhouette photo of ME….ha ha)Hugs,Betsy


  5. Love the crabs…and the photos…no video on this stupid iPad….and I don't go back to school until next wedesday with kids…this Friday without..a..but first a whole lot of fun in store this week.Happy Monday!
