Tick City

We brought the girls outside to play the other night before their bedtime. It was a fun time until we found a tick on Anna. My brother's friend mows our yard for us - for a small fee, of course - and the yard is well overdue for a trim. Rich and Grammy were stripping down the girls for a bath while I filled the tub and gathered towels. They found a small tick on Anna's arm. It's head wasn't in her skin thankfully and there was no marks on her yesterday or today.

Poor baby, she kept saying, "Tick arm boo-boo kiss it."

Here are some pictures. A post wouldn't be complete without pictures. Allie in orange, Anna in white, Em in pink.













Anna fell down a few times and I caught her going down the slide head first. I suspect that the long grass went up her sleeve during a fall, depositing the tick on her arm. The girls don't like bugs and point them out ALL the time so if she had seen one on herself, she would have let me know.
