Fireflies

A highlight of the trip home so far, visiting the family and friends we haven't seen in years.
Next best thing ~ catching fireflies.
My absolute favorite critter, there is something entirely magical about their flickering glow.
The sound of giggling children running around at dusk in pajamas
in a quest to catch them is perhaps the sweetest sound of a summertime evening.

We don't have fireflies in Belgium. So this was a unique experience for the kids.


Lots of lightening bugs caught and freed tonight.
Shine on dear friends!

Glad you had a fun time... I'm so glad we got to visit a little bit today! Random little known fact about fireflies... They are the Pennsylvania state bug!
