We recently finished our backyard and my husband was given a very nice table and chair set for Father's Day, so we decided to BBQ hot dogs and corn on the cob and eat outside tonight. Well... it seemed like a good idea. We were attacked by flies. It may sound trivial to some... but NO! There were seriously hundreds of flies all over our food, drinks, plates, hands and feet. It was DISGUSTING!!!!
So, my husband pulled out our 3 fly swatters and the boys went at it.
(Side Note: Don't ask me why we have 3 fly swatters. He came home from Save Mart about 3 weeks ago with them. Random, but now somewhat useful.) Anyways, the start of the great Fly Debacle of 2008 ensued. They boys ran around the backyard swatting away and there were literally about 100 dead flies left to clean up when they were finished. I was grossed out, so I stayed inside and watched from the sliding glass door. Also, I was not armed for battle since there were only 3 weapons.
Now for the pictures.... One child is in a diaper, one is naked (he prefers to be naked while in the backyard.... it's a little weird if you ask me, but who can argue with a stubborn 3 year old?) and my husband is shirtless. So, I had to do a little editing to a couple of the pictures to protect their innocence.
