Chicken Pox?



Who knew a 5 year old could be so hairy!?
Nope, not chicken pox... mosquitoes.  They are HORRIBLE here.  The pictures just don't quite show how bad off we all are.  The boys literally LOOK like they have chicken pox.  Poor Ethan's forehead was the worst the other day.  He had at least 20 within inches of each other.  We have tried repellent and even bought an indoor bug catcher.  Everyone has these outdoor things run by propane.
As long as I am pulling images off of the internet, does the milk at Cosco down there look like this?  We don't have a Costco, but there is a store here that sells a lot of the Kirkland brand stuff.

The one time I visited Anchorage, I was blown away by the size and quantity of the mosquitoes. No wonder they say the mosquito is the state bird of Alaska. They're as big as mosquito hawks (crane flies) and swarm like gnats. Good luck!

yuck! I totally hate mosquitoes! And the container for the milk does look interesting. But as long at it tastes the same...right? Aaron's birthday is in two weeks and he is so sad that Brenden cannot come.
