Day 173 - Lightening Bugs

I caught lightening bugs with Owen tonight for the first time. I even dug out a mason jar like old times. I caught a wopping two and we put them in the jar at seperate times then let them go. As the 2nd one flew away, I told O to tell it bye and he waved bye to it with the sweetest look on his face. They are out in full force, but I don't remember them being so hard to catch as a child. ha!

This is perhaps one of my favorite pics of Owen lately. The only thing that could make it better for me is if you could see the bug and if it was lighting up! I love to capture his firsts. I try to capture as many as I can. That's what its about.


  1. I completely agree about trying to capture the firsts!!! I sure do miss lighting bugs!! This photo is completely adorable!!

  2. I said "aww" out loud when I saw this. I'm so glad that you had a mason jar to put the lightening bug in. We tried chasing lightening bugs last week and the only thing I had were tupperware. It's just not the same :). This is a wonderful shot, Melissa!!!
