McNaughton, Wisconsin — Spider Lake Road — Dad’s house

I was walking with Beth when I spotted this frog in the grass by the wood shed.

I sat her down and tried to catch it. I chased it right across Beth’s lap before I grabbed it. I put it in the birdbath to show Dave and Jessica Pearson. It hopped out immediately. I caught it again and held it in my open palm to show Beth. It jumped down next to her on the walkway to the shed. She picked it up by the head and shook it. Only its legs and rear end were sticking out. She dropped it after a few seconds and it escaped through a crack in the walk.
