A few years ago, my Dad found a toad in the skimmer box when he was cleaning the pool. He called my mom and me outside to see it and we started laughing because instead of hopping away, it just sat there and looked at us. We thought it would be fun to take some pictures with it and it turned into a fully-fledged photo shoot.
Even our cat Stir got in on the action. Although they are not smiling for the camera, they posed like two professionals and we'd like to think that they enjoyed working with each other.
My mom was having such a blast that we decided to even take a "family photo" with our bumpy buddy. I don't think that this pic ever made it onto the fridge, but we talked about it for years to come and the smile on my mom's face shows you that she is toadally up for anything!
"Ruby Tuesday" is a place for friends and family to share stories about my mother and show how she has impacted their lives.
