Raccoon Problem in our Yard April 1, 2012

We’re having a bit of a raccoon problem in our backyard lately. We can’t seem to get rid of the little bugger…


Here he is on our deck, acting like he owns the place


Oh crap, he's coming towards me!


This one can walk on its hind legs!


As I mentioned, we tried everything to deter it from coming back.


we thought swinging it around would scare it off but it seems to have liked it.


Burying it in leaves didn't work either.


We even tried to throw it away as high as possible but it came right back down.


Shaking it upside down didn't work either.


We actually had a lot of fun in the backyard yesterday. Henry loves being outside now and kind of freaks out if we carry him. He wants to walk and explore everything.


I find this picture hilarious. It's like "Babies falling from the sky!!!"


exploring the edge of the deck with daddy


Meanwhile inside, Atticus was having a seizure.

The demons have got me!


and then realized I was snapping away.

That was a private moment Melina. You'll be hearing from my lawyer.


Henry then invented a new snack called “Floorios”

It wasn't me, I swear!


I'll be extra cute and doff my cap to you to distract you from the mess.


And then put it back on slyly a la Justin Timberlake.


All those activites made for a lot of dirt. So…
