We don't have a screen door on our backdoor, and between the cat, the dog, and the husband, the backdoor is open a lot. Thus, we've had some flies taking up residence in our house. I can't remember to buy a fly swatter at the store, and the flies were driving me nuts. Mom was over the other day, and saw a fly. She grabbed the 409, took aim, and fired. It worked! The fly was immobilized, and the rest was a piece of cake.
I used 409 Glass and Surface for a long time, but since Andy has come along, I really started worrying about what chemicals they have to put in that stuff to make it work THAT well. Plus, I wasn't able to find it except to get it through Andrew's aunt, who lives in Louisiana. Makes you wonder about a product if they'll only sell in in Louisiana. Anyway, I started using a brand called Seventh Generation. It's all natural ingredients, smells like thyme, and at least makes me feel better about cleaning Andy's high chair.
The Seventh Generation also works to kill the flies, in case you're wondering.

We took Andy on our family vacation to Estes Park, CO this month. Poor little Andy was sick pretty much the whole time. The only time he was really happy was in the hiking backpack. Thus, all the pictures of him are in the backpack! We call it the houda because, according to my smart husband, that is the little box on top of the elephant in which people ride.
Uncle Benjamin and Andy making forts. Benjamin can't wait to teach Andy all about boy-stuff.
