They're Baaaaaccccckkkkkk!!!!



After enjoying days of endless, bug-free sunshine, it appears as though the Minnesota State Bird is back in full force.

Please pass the DEET.


  1. OMG! Did you take those photos? Who's blood did that booger suck?! Yep, I would agree that the mesquito is the MN state bird!

  2. Ha! Yup, Jamie...I did. And, I'm not sure, but I think it was my blood, judging by the enormous welt I was itching on my shin!

  4. Eww Eww Ewww!!!! I can't stand bugs! Luckily we don't get really big ones up here in the Northwest. Except spiders... I hate spiders!!!! Ewww, I feel all creepy crawly now!

  6. Well that sucks... arm yourselves:-)

But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later! Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story ! And this story ...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;) So, you can thank her...I guess. Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
