Gardening with Nana

Gardening is one of the kids favorite activities. On the porch they always work hard to hand trim any bushes within reach. And while they are getting better and not putting leaves, sticks, mulch, rocks, etc. in their mouths, they still occasionally want a taste of the great outdoors. We are, though, working to find away to prevent mosquito bites while they are outdoors. It seems the bugs are attracted to sweet baby blood, and Arthur, Betty, and Coraline all receive multiple bug bites every time we take them outside. Today we are trying a Skintastic bugspray that contains picaridin (we won't use anything with DEET in it...at least for now).
