Did You Know Dragonfly’s Can Grin?

I will just go ahead and apologise now.  For the next couple of weeks I might just drive you all a bit crazy with my “This one time at the cottage…” stories.  I will try and throw in a little of the usual snark and sass so you don’t get too bored and leave me forever!

So this one time at the cottage, we were sitting in our giant Muskoka chairs, just watching the day go by.  I was counting my blessings that I had been given an entire week to slow down enough to actually here the end of every story my SweetGirl told, and still had time to sit, time to breath. 


A week in cottage country without a television, telephone or access to the internet also gives you the opportunity to get out your camera and capture the smiles on your babies faces….


and the grins of the Dragonfly’s! 


Spooky!! Who knew bugs had faces that could grin!! HA.

Somehow you know you are in a happy place when even the bugs are smiling.

  6. We saw a dragonfly on vacation this summer that refused to fly away. We all touched it and everything.
