Picnic + River= Mistake

Saturday was such a nice day that we decided to pack a picnic lunch and take Chloe to a nearby park. There was a wonderful trail that followed a flowing river nearby. We spotted a bench that was right off the path and agreed it would make for a nice lunch spot. Boy, were we wrong! I noticed a few mosquitos landing on Clint's legs. I made mention of them and thought I was getting a few bites myself. Well as it turns out, while I was lunching on my sandwich, the mosquitos were FEASTING on my legs! When we returned to the car I told Clint that I thought I had been bit and asked if he could tell. "Oh my gosh," was his reaction. I counted over 20 bites on each leg! I have been in complete misery for the past 2 days. We were suppose to go on a hike with our Sunday school group the next day but had to opt out b/c I couldn't stand to think of getting bit one more time.

I have been in complete misery for the past 2 days. Not only does it itch like crazy but both my legs look disgusting. I'm stuck wearing pants in this hot weather. I must have some tasty blood!!!

UGH! I will never forget when I was bitten by them stinkers like 900 times. Jessica and I were at church camp (which we hated). But we camped out and slept in cabins all week - we were eaten alive! EW! It makes me itch just thinking about it. Hope you're better now.
