Outdoor Time

 We're enjoying lots of playdates and time with friends this summer.  What a beautiful park!

On another note, I think I'm going to train for a half-marathon in September. I'm excited to have a big goal -- just for ME!  :-)  It has been years since I last trained for anything.  My last marathon was on the Sydney Olympic marathon coarse... and I finished in the Sydney Olympic stadium with a personal best of 3:25... obviously that was a long time ago -- before I had kids!

Does anyone know what this interesting bug is?


  1. Hi,
    My kids found one of these in our backyard the other day. We live in Ottawa..
    I too looked it up and found that it is an Eastern-Eyed Click Beetle.. It would make a clicking sound as it moved its head back and forward quickly..
    Anyway, I just came across your post while researching and thought I would drop a line with its name :)
    Take Care;

  2. Thanks Dave! Thanks for letting us know! ~Liesl
