Painted Grasshopper

Photo from

On our walk this morning we saw an odd looking grasshopper. We did not have the camara with, but I used google to look it up and it appears that we saw a painted locust.
Rather ugly, in my opinion, but still interesting.

And #7 is......

Yesterday we went and had a ultrasound of #7 done, and Mom and Dad decided to find out the gender. We have never found out before, so this was, well, shocking.
And the result? Everything seems to be in order, Thank God, and #7 is a Boy.
He was
nice enough to let us see the back of his head, and the fact that he has hair, but his face was to much to ask. (he moved about 5 minutes after the ultrasound)
