Hopping Along

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

ok, maybe that title is a bit cheesy, but hey when this is a blog about the critter I saw in my back yard the past two nights, what can you expect!!!!!

Here it is:



Now for a little back-story here. 

Last year (I think it was spring) my mother-in-law found a frog at her work and brought it home and gave it to my kids (gee thanks).  Well, it was a frog that is not normally seen in this area.  We got it a little home and bought some crickets (again thanks so much grandma) and we kept it for about 4 months.

Needless to say, the kids lost interest and hubs and I were the ones left to care for it.  So what did we do, you ask?

Well we let it go in the yard.  That's what we did.  I was tired of it.  It smelled bad (and I mean HORRIBLE) and I did not like having the LIVE crickets in the house (I was terrified they would get loose).

Well, now you see the frog.....about twice as big as it was last year, but it is one in the same.  I mean really, this is not a normal frog for BFE New Mexico so what are the chances that it is a DIFFERENT frog that looks the same. 


  1. Hummmmmm well looks like he liked you guys enough to hang around.

  2. those must be some pretty nutritious crickets he's finding in the yard! And I don't blame you for letting it go...I don't think I would have been able to keep it in the first place!

  3. interesting post. Here’s my photo story. happy Friday!

  4. Hey, I did a PSF about a frog once too. Although he stayed outside. ;) Yours is quite a strange yellow color.

  5. Yes ... I think giving a frog to children is NOT an acceptable gift. I'm glad he is thriving though! Seems like he wants to come back home! : )

  6. I guess he found his way back home, LOL! I think he's kind of cute.
