Attack of the killer mosquitoes!

We attempted to go to the pool today and THIS is what happened. Fortunately Russ was able to save the kids from the worst of it. I, however, did not fair so well.... :0( They were even biting us at the pool then Russ got stung by a bee. We were so miserable we had to run back into the condo after only about 5 minutes. Russ took these pictures to the front desk and told them they needed to spray NOW or refund money since we are having to hide in our condo. WAHHH!! The pool is totally deserted right now. We can see it from our room and people try to go out there and then they swat around like crazy people and run away.



Daddy saved the day though. He went to Walmart and got bug bite ointment and the new Camp Rock DVD. So the girls are THRILLED about that. They are having some movie time and Daddy and I are just chilling. So hopefully the problem will get fixed today too. There is another pool by the beach so maybe that one isn't as awful. Here's hoping! :0) Angel

I think Kaitlyn's face over on your sidebar says it all! I am usually a mosquito magnet, but I don't think I've ever gotten bit that bad. Your front looks bad enough, but when I scrolled down to see the picture of your back, oh my goodness gracious. I am so sorry!

OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!!!!!!!!!! We had a similar story in Tampa...our condo had fleas. Caleb was only 8 months old, and I could see them hopping around in his hair!!!!!!!!! UGH. We only paid 1/2for our condo.
Those bites are UNBELIEVABLE, Angel!!!!!

Liz said...

So sorry you had that experience! I remember being little and going to Galveston and right at dusk the mosquitos swarmed! My dad grabbed my sister and I up and ran and my mom got the brunt of it too! So sorry hope you don't feel too terrible. Hugs, Elizabeth
