Last week when the cousins {and auntie and uncle} were in town we walked the bob jones trail in Avila Beach. It’s pretty much perfect for a stroller and a group of kiddos. It’s easy, and once you walk a mile or two there is a great deli/grocery store where we stopped and had lunch.

The only problem? We brought a little friend home with us. And when I say little friend, I mean a completely unwelcome little tick that somehow found a cozy spot inside my niece’s belly button. We didn’t believe her when she said there was a bug in her belly button, but after closer inspection, there was! Oh my goodness, the crying, the screaming, the laughter. It was seriously one of the craziest things ever. Thank you google for helping get rid of that awful bug!

Have you had an encounter with a tick?
