4 more

This "frog hunting" thing really helps us put some spunk into our days. The boys look forward to it. They often ask to go "frog hunting" and then we can say, "If you are really nice today maybe we can go." Even though we know we will be going anyway because we look forward to it too. It is exciting to find new frogs and fish! Here are a few more we actually did have to "hunt" for.
We have decided that we like this Statue of Liberty frog much better than the one at Grover Cleveland. This one is at Emerson Gridley Elementary School - 816 Park Ave.

I think that from now on I will include the name that we have given to each frog to save in our files. The names that are sometimes posted by them are really not that exciting. This one's name is Peacock Joe. He was found at St. Joseph's Apartments - 517 Maryland Ave.

This is Tracy Tiger Pants McGee. Found at Tracy Elementary - 2624 W 6th St.

We named this one "Eddie" because we found it at the Washington Educational Center on the first day of preschool. - 148 W 21st St.

Friends with Frogs and Fish

If you submit a picture please check this section to see yourself. We are going to do some reorganizing but "Friends with Frogs and Fish" will stay. Thanks for joining the hunt!

Thanks for finding the frog at the library Rilyn!

Rilyn also found a fish at a Niagra gift store!

Rilyn's daddy even joined in the hunt! This picture is with "stergeon general" in LECOM. Rilyn's daddy is more brave than Andersen's and Miles's dads, or maybe just more fun.

Cassidy and her dad also found the frog at the library!

Thanks Tayla for finding the frog at the zoo! You girls need to teach Andersen and
Miles to smile and look at the camera.

Frog and Fish Hunting! Frogs #6-9.

I think my favorite part of Frog Hunting is capturing the kids in their true state on camera. As hard as we try, we can't get them to to stand by the frogs, smile, and look at the camera all at the same time. It turns out that they look even better doing their own thing and I truly love seeing their personalities shine through the pictures.

Here are a few more we spotted driving down West 10th street. Can you tell us where they are?

The plaque for the fish had worn away so I call this one- The Naked Fish. It is pretty scandlous.

We have no idea who or what the next fish and frog belong to. We should've asked the strange man in a top hat wandering around the field where the statues are.

Rainbow Fish.

Van Goug.

We found this one thanks to Karen M. at Romolo's. It is my favorite!

This is Rosie. She is the first female frog that we have hunted!

This is the happy little frog we found at Shriner's Hospital. I like it because it has some sweet pictures of frogs doing all sorts of friendly kids activities painted on the frog's back.

We spotted this one in front of a lovely little art shop. The babies got in on the action this time! They were totally excited.

Be on the look out for more frogs!
Happy Hunting!

5 out of 102 is a start!

So our friend told us she thinks there are 102 frogs to find. So we have only completed less than 5% of our frog journey.

Try to guess where these two are.

The Statue of Liberty Frog is at Grover Cleveland Elementary on 38th. The Boxer Frog is right across the street at Teletron Marketing Group. - We didn't know it was there either. We have passed it at least a hundred times but never noticed it. It was Andersen who found this frog. Great frog hunting Andersen!!

Frog Hunting

We the wives of two LECOM medical students found ourselves in Erie, PA last fall both prego and with 2 year olds. Now we each have two children and lots of time on our hands trying to keep ourselves and our kids entertained. We have added "frog hunting" to our rotation of activities to do in Erie. The rotation includes: the children's museum, the zoo, going to parks, the beach and our almost daily trips to Wegmans. We hope that by adding this new activity it will open the doors to many more adventures in Erie.

If you know of a frog or a fish you would like us to visit please leave a comment to tell us where it is! Also let us know of other Erie activities we should try. Thanks!

This is at the Wegmans on Peach.

Yup, you guessed it Howard Hanna on Peach.

Lupo Chiropractic Center on Liberty and Peach. Poor Miles hit his head on the frog's knee. Now I will have a memory when I look at that frog that I drive by everyday. Hopefully the other frog experiences will be better.

Oh, don't forget to follow us on our adventures! -emily
