Below you'll find the pics...including a surprise guest...a bat. I know, I am an amazing mom to go as far as to have live bats at the Batman party, YEAH, RIGHT!! I was opening our patio umbrella...stuck my head up inside to make sure it was moving up right...when something dropped from inside the top to right in front of my face. It took a second for it to register what it was, and then about a nano-second for me to jump 10 feet from the thing and yell for Todd!!
Apparently our patio has an open invitation for disgusting creatures right now!! Anyway, Todd took lots of pics of it, then poked it a bit til it flew out - and planted itself in the rafters of the carport where we were having the party! Nice. The furry varmint finally left, and all us females breathed a sigh of relief; they just creep me out!!
The uninvited, but theme appropriate, guest:
