This happened every afternoon during our long hot summer -- the girls had to get out of the sweltering hive! We could only speculate on whether this is why.... :)

This little tree frog took up residence in my wren's nesting box..he stayed there all summer only leaving to get something to eat. Some days when we would check he'd be gone. The box is connected to a TV tower...and it's located about 4 ft from the ground.

This is our blue Great Dane, Contessa. It was a hot summer in 2012, but this did not stop "Tessa" from spending the afternoon on her favorite spot - the trampoline. However, I chuckled when it appeared to me that she was keeping cool by fanning her lips.

I took this close up shot of a mysterious volunteer and sent it in to my fellow gardeners at DG to see if anyone knew what kind of tree it was. Turns out it is the Winged-Elm. Called a Bat-Elm in Texas. But the best answer came from bezziec of Pflugerville, TX...who called it a Bacon Tree!

We had a family meal out. My seven year old daughter used the bathroom in the middle of our lunch in her one piece outfit. When we left I noticed something dangling from her back...I couldn't believe my eyes! Even though I was embarrassed for her I died laughing! She'll be utterly mortified one but day I had to snap a pic for posterity.
