boys will be boys, i mean.... men will be men

on saturday we spent the afternoon at the wilde's. while the kids were having a great time playing, us adults were catching up on each other's lives.

that is until the husbands went out back and saw a huge spider hungerly waiting for a meal. so, mitch and gordon decided to aid the spider in his patient quest for food. gordon, spotting a fly in the house, the perfect dinner specimen, ever so gently "injured" the innocent fly only enough to debilitate his flying capabilities.

with their first objective accomplished, mitch set out to toss the fly into the web of the spider. the first attempt was foiled by a "large" hole in the web which, lucky for the fly, he escaped the dinner menu. however, the boys, errr i mean, the men, were not put off that easily. they went in search of the fly in the grass. the poor fly was discovered.

finally, after several mishaps, the men were triumphant in their quest!





yummy! hungry anyone?

That is so gross. What is it about men? They ARE little boys always.

Mahina, this is so funny. I just posted on my blog about the same exact type of spider, and then read this post. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one posting about spiders!!!

Yuck! But it's still not as gross as that snake you posted all over your blog. Ew! :-)

I'm with elizabeth! The snake was worse! (even though the spider lives at my house!) Thanks for the fun day. . .
