boy vs. wild

Lately our family has started watching Man vs. Wild.   We think it's entertaining, and a little shocking too.   I've been thinking maybe we shouldn't watch it with Joshua because he's proudly brought me numerous live bugs since first watching the show.
Bugs are one thing, but today when I was watering out plants, I saw a snake in some bushes & ran in the house.  I quickly dialed Jon & pleaded with him to come home from work to kill it (I hate snakes).  Josh caught wind of what was going on & he mumbled aloud, "I'm gonna eat it"...then he headed out back. It took everything in me to follow him with my camera. I really hate snakes.
Lucky for us, he couldn't find that sneaky snake. No snake brunch. Phew!

I would pay to see Josh try to catch a snake. Mostly because I've seen him freak out with a ladybug on his arm...after he had been playing with it for 10 minutes. That little guy kills me!

That is so dang cute. Don't you feel better having Josh as your protector??? He's sure a character!

Oh my, that is hilarious. I hate snakes too, I hope Lucas never brings one home.

I think it's awesome that Josh is willing to chow down on some snake to protect his Mama.

Kinda glad he didn't find it though. Wonder if he wouldn't followed through.
