{Play} Dead

This morning my boys caught a Cicada.  If you don't know what a cicada is read {This}.  Cicada's are real bad in Missouri this year, because they hatched after 14 years of being buried under ground.  You can read an article {HERE}, if you want to know more.  Anyways, the boys brought in this cicada this morning, on a leaf, and I told them to bring it back outside, since Cicadas "play dead" from predators.

The boys swore up and down the cicada was dead!  I ran outside to take a picture of the bug and it started moving and my son was freaking out!

Just thought I'd share a crazy morning with 3 boys and a "playing dead" cicada! :)

At least it was only a cicada and not a lizard or creepy crawly thing, Kristen! Boys get up to the most amazing things, they are so curious.

I saw that you voted for me for Best Travel Blog on the Blogger's Choice Awards - that was so incredibly sweet of you! Thank you for taking the time to do it - I really appreciated it:)
