Cougars, Mosquitos, Humidity...oh my!

I have always thought I have been a little bit on the paranoid side when it comes to...well...I guess most things involving my kids. I am not sure where I got this from. Ah-hem Mom, Grandma.
I kind of worry (go figure) that I might be putting too much fear in James. I can kind of see it already, I just hope I don't damage him too much! :) I mean he starts to freak out like if I am walking in front of him to go inside. He thinks I am going to leave him outside or something. He also thinks the cougars are going to get him. I don't blame him though. I also think the cougars are going to get him.
Last week we had such a beautiful day. It was cool, breezy, and very fall like. This was one of the first times in quite a while that we sat outside and played. It probably lasted all of 20 min.

Oh cute picture of sweet Ada. The main reason we went in so fast was the mosquitos. They are SO incredibly bad this year. If you look closely at the picture above you can spy one of the little devils to the right of Ada's face.

Wait...did she say something about cougars? That lady be CRAZY!
Am I?

One of the greatest things about moving into a house from the town homes we lived in previously is the yard. Being able to walk around and have room for James to play. That got shot down hard core this summer. First it was the super hot weather, then the mosquitos (did I mention how bad they are this year?),then the mountain lion.
Wait, what did she say?
You know Cougar? also known as puma, mountain lion, mountain cat, catamount or panther.
When my sister was here, she was outside late at night and something started growling at her. She ran inside. It started making really weird calls and left. Come to find out in our local newsletter, they put out a warning about this fierce creature. The cougar. A 200 lb stalking predator. My neighbor saw it a week or so after my sister did in the vacant lot across the street from my house. Call me a paranoid freak, but I really don't like having James and Ada outside. Or myself for that matter!

Omigod...Ada's outfit is TOO cute! It won't be fall here for another two plus months!

And can I just say how impressed I am with your camera that it could capture a mosquito with that clarity?
