OK, it’s not going to be completely wordless.  But I thought I’d share a few photos from a recent hike in the Blue Hills.  It’s a great local destination to take the family for some active outdoor fun!

Best part of summer?  Being outside late in the evening, spending those extra hours in the yard with friends and family.  But, it’s really hard to enjoy yourself when you’re constantly swatting and slapping bugs away!   I really, really don’t like using sticky, stinky bug spray, so I was excited when I was given the Stinger Mosquito Repellent Lantern to review!

The stinger lantern is a pretty, compact, and effective solution to our mosquito problem!  It runs on four AA batteries (included), and offers protection for a 15 foot radius using all natural, DEET-free ingredients that are safe for kids and pets.  The smell the lantern gives off is a bit like citronella, but lighter.  We didn’t mind it at all.  The bug repellent is dispersed by a ultra quiet fan in the lantern – so quiet that we couldn’t hear it!
