Not Kermit, But So Cute!

Good morning,

Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we think he's cute.  We met this pretty face at the Newport Aquarium
And, just beyond the real thing these guys are all lined up to play with the kids.

These are more images from our recent visit to the Newport Aquarium in Newport, Kentucky.  If you're in the area, be sure it's on your visit list, especially if you have children with you.

Enjoy!

Lois

I love him and the ones the kids can play with. It's so funny, I collected frogs when I was a young girl...hmmm...I wonder whatever happened to them all.

Hi Lois...I am not overly fond of them but I do love finding toads and frogs in the yard.
Often the toads give me a startle when I am gardening!!
This one doesn't look under feed that's for sure, and the colorful one for kids are so darn cute!!

We get those big guys in our pond, and I think they're just amazing!

Sometimes we find beauty in the oddest things.

I think he is cuter than Kermit :). And that Feta Cheese Garlic bread looks yummy!

I like frogs and toads, too, but I wouldn't exactly call him cute, lol! Looks like a really fun place for the kiddos to visit. ~karen

Good morning,

He is a big one, isn't he. That was such a fun trip to the aquarium. We go every couple of years. This year it was pretty crowded at the end near the penguin exhibit. We'll have to go back to see that one.

We don't have frogs and toads in our garden. I have a feeling that they wouldn't last long since we have so many feral cats.

Thanks so much for stopping by, everyone.

Very best,
Lois
