I recently built a bat house. It even has a Bat Girl sticker.
Since I hear bats eat mosquitos, I thought it may be a good idea to attract a few. Plus we had a bat living in one of our vents a year or two ago so I thought it’d be easy to attract them. Turns out, I haven’t attracted any bats yet.
I used the boards I had lying around and I figured out measurements as I went. It’s basically four walls and a roof. On the inside I used some wire fence that I thought the bats could grip onto. This was easier than scratching the insides of the bat house as some plans recommend. Overall, I thought it was just as good as the vent they lived in a while back.
I’m not quite sure why the bats aren’t coming, but maybe they’re not looking for homes this time of year, or maybe it should be more in the sun. Either way, I’m happy with it.
Happy Birthday to my sweet girl. This time it’s double digits!
Lily had a great time with her family and friends over the past few days. First, we had grandparents and uncles up for some yard games and ice cream cake. Then we had a family day. Followed by a trip to Valleyfair with a few friends and a piñata cake.
This year Lily is going into 5th grade which is middle school and I don’t know where the time goes. She’s still my little girl and always will be.
Basically you use cake mix instead of waffle mix.
There’s a lot of contractors going door to door since the hail storm so we put up a sign. So far it’s been pretty effective.
Here is the full size version of the Grumpy Cat No Soliciting Sign if you want a copy.
It’s good to note that I didn’t create this, I found it on the inter webs and I’m not sure who created it in the first place.
Everyone has to start at day one, and day one is just to make some sound. I think we have that down.
Give it a year or two and she’ll be rockin’ that clarinet.
Hard to believe this is required for 5th grade.
For Father’s Day, my daughter made me a super gift. Six jars, all super hero themed and filled with different items.
- Ironman – Almond M&Ms
- Thor – Cheesy Chex Mix
- Batman – Lemonade Drink Mix
- Captain America – Junior Mints
- Flash – Hot Tamales
- Spiderman – DQ Gift Card
It was a very cool idea and had a great super hero card to go with it. ❤️
There’s a lot of parks in our old town and we visited one of our favorites tonight. The “castle park” at Bayview Elementary in Waconia is always fun even if we’re a bit bigger now.
