The Frog Princess Part 2

Back in September 2011 I posted about how Princess Nagger likes to stalk the pond and capture goldfish for observation, and when we ended up with some resident frogs, she tried (unsuccessfully) to do same with them:

Fast-forward a year-and-a-half later, and she’s still fascinated with watching the frogs and goldfish at the pond (and so far hasn’t shown any interest in catching the frogs, thank goodness):

The smile was brought on by this little fellow (and his 3 brothers and sisters, not pictured):

Frog

We better make sure our next house has a pond for her critter watching, right?

One thing that I thought I would never see in this desert I live in is bullfrogs. I don’t have any around our house, but I know people who do have the noisy fellows.

Bullfrogs really are noisy creatures, aren’t they Danielle? When it gets dark, we hear them ‘barking’ from the pond – it’s kinda funny sounding. ;)

That’s fascinating. I think it’d be cool to have a pond by your house to watch all the critters.

It is cool to have a pond to watch the critters – one of the reasons why I mentioned to the hubby our next house needs a pond, or if it doesn’t have one we’ll have to put one in. ;)

When I was a kid, we use to catch frogs at our backyard especially on rainy seasons. I can tell it is hard to chase them around because they are slippery and they always jump all of a sudden. We learned how to catch them using some improvised bait.

Oh that’s funny, Charice! Especially how you guys got creative on catching the little slippery things. ;)

She’s pretty fabulous isn’t she? She has to have whatever she needs at your next house. There is a lot of exploring to do mom. I’ll bet she is making you something super fabulous for Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to see it. :)

She is pretty fabulous! :) I think she’ll be very happy at all the potential exploration she’ll get to do after we move – plus there will be tons of perfect climbing trees, too. ;) I’m looking forward to seeing what she makes me for Mother’s Day, too – if she remembers. She seemed a little disconcerted that Mother’s Day is this Sunday. ;)

Are you sure she wasn’t a cat in a previous life? It would explain a lot… :-)

Happy WW! (And definitely, a pond needs to be on your “must have” list for the new place.)

AHAHAHAHA! She’ll be very happy you think that, EdT! She likes to act like a cat, so having been a cat in a previous life would definitely explain a lot. ;) I told the hubby if our next house doesn’t have a pond, we’ll have to put one in…he’s on board with that idea! :)

Absolutely, Denise! I’ve been painting the picture of what amazing adventures PN will have after we move – she’s finally gotten excited about the whole moving thing. :) Plus she’s looking forward to getting to hang with her cousins who are only a year older than her – they participate in tons of adventures, so that helps too. ;)

He does like the critters – but not quite as much as PN since he’s more OCD about staying clean. It cracks me up how polar opposite the two of them are! :)

As a kid, I recall how much fun it was to watch the tadpoles swim in the creek and to capture crawl dads. Of course there were tiny fish in the creek, but for the life of me I don’t remember what they were. Oh well, it was all a part of the lazy days of summer – an experience to last a life time. So shall this be the case for PN. Great WW photos. Thanks for hosting a linky party!

That looks like all sorts of fun! I hope she finds something just as interesting when you move =) I was never really into catching things like that when I was little, I thought it was pretty gross.

39 Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) May 9, 2013 at 11:33 am

I suspect she’ll find something just as interesting when we move since there are tons more areas to explore even at my parents’ house. ;) Even though I was a tomboy growing up, I was never really into catching things like that – I had to draw the line somewhere! LOL! :)

54 CyndyNewsome May 8, 2013 at 9:00 pm

We have been invaded by frogs around here. So much water from all of the rain has attracted them. I got hubby to remove one from my bedroom window earlier today and take him outside, and then later I saw one hopping around the living room. I am not 100% sure but I THINK one of the dogs ATE that one! =O

You had one on your bedroom window and hopping in the living room??
