Anticipation

We have a new nightly activity at Chez Goose: Bat Watching


Just as the sun starts to go down, the boys start getting ready for bed knowing that the bats will soon make an appearance in our back yard. They get in their jammies (OK, truth is they've probably got in them 5 seconds after they got home. These kids love to be cozy!), brush up and run out on the deck taking their place next to each other on the picnic table. It's so cute to see how excited they get waiting for them.

Here they come Mama!

So cute! I'd be safely tucked away in the house.

I'm with them on the cozy thing. I announce every night, "Okay, I'm going up to put on my comfy clothes." However, I work from home so I go from sweats to pajama pants.

How cute...and totally terrifying.

We have the same Tool jammies.
As for the bats, you can have them! You can have mine to.
We sit in the truck and watch them come out of the barn. We have too many and they scare me.

I wish that Grasshopper wanted to hang out in his pajamas! He wants to be dressed so that he can go out at a moments notice.

Seriously.

The bat thing is super cool!

My kids would love this, too! Me, not so much. I did some bat-watching as a child... in my living room! *shudder*

With all of the mosquitos that we have around our house, I wish you would send some of your bats my way!

I am so glad you guys derive so much joy out of this. When I think of bats I automatically put a hat on. Yeah, they kinda creep me out.
