Monday, I was shooting an adorable couple and their fabulous pooches (I'll share those images soon). While wandering around the lake, I noticed the grass moving beneath us. I zoomed in and watched for a few moments. I very quickly realized there were thousands of baby toads hopping everywhere! I was so uber excited that after the session I rushed home to pick up my kids. They grabbed a few buckets and off we went, back to the lake. When we got to the park Grant just screamed with joy and Olivia continually said, "the toads are sooooo hoppy!" : )
It might just be the excited mom in me but I'd have to say this was one of the highlights of our summer, so far.
After a decent amount of time, we asked the kids to carefully release the toads. Olivia was pretty sad she had to send all her "little buddies" away but declared they should go find their mommies and go to sleep for the night.
