#2 wanted sugar cookies, so we made a batch yesterday. We made these cute little butterflies, tulips and bunnies.
Standing at the kitchen window looking out at the Mowing Maniacs* next door, I saw this thing trudging along into our yard. It was a snapping turtle that I knowledgably estimated to weigh around 50lbs. I did what I always do in any dire situation….called my brother. He always knows what to do…in this case, he suggested I trap the big beasty by tipping the wheelbarrow over it. Before taking his expert advice, I thought I’d assess the situation further by going out and taking a few pictures.
I securely placed #4 in her Rainforest Jumperoo…(this thing is sooo worth $79.99) and #2 and #3 took their places by the porch window while I bravely stepped outside. Taking pictures of anything unusual is nessesary in this family because nobody ever believes you. Last year on April 1st all my chickens got out…no one would come over to help me because it was stupid April Fools Day.
