The Scorpions!!!! I had to make these pictures large so you could see them. They are only about the size of your thumb. The first picture was taken with a flash (so it looks like daylight), but if you look close, you can see it just under the left side of the pinkish/purplish rock.
This next picture was taken of the same scorpion, but without a flash. I am shining a black light on it, which makes them glow in the dark. There's something in their exoskeleton that makes them do this. Feel free to comment if you can shed more light on this amazing phenomenon.

This may be the last posting of my belly. At least I hope it is!! I've finally hit the uncomfortable stage where you get the shooting pains down your legs, charley horses, back aches, sore ribs, etc.
We think we would rather have a crying baby now than an uncomfortable Nancee. We may change our minds after it is too late.
Kayla looks ready for the baby to come too. Actually, I think she is hoping I have a treat for her.
Troy spent a lot of time making the front yard look nice. He even chopped down this tree (with a little help from the monsoon storm that already blew it sideways).
Kayla meeting her counsins...

and Kayla bored at home with Nancee, waiting for Troy to come home and play.
