Turtle Crossing :)


We had a long day yesterday. I went out with grandma, my mom, and Aaron, and we got some needed shopping done, and put up the rest of the Christmas decorations, and baked 300 cookies (We got a new stove, for grandma, for Christmas, and she had to bake something in her awesome 4 rack oven, lol)

I was just about to go to bed, and grandma yells "Come here!" So I run over, and she's like "look at the turtle" and I don't see this turtle at first, I'm just freaking out, because I thought Hubba or Bubba got out. Well after carefully looking through our lanai's lattice, I saw it. A giant painted turtle found it's way to our backyard (I have no idea how. We have a creek behind our house, but it's like a 15 foot, really steep hill to get up it, so I don't think it could climb it.)

The dogs were freaking out (Not sure why.. They see 2 turtles everyday, lol) so we went and took a few pictures (with my new camera :)) and then we carried him across the street, to the creek, and watched him swim away :)
   (Those are some crazy eyes!)
The perfect ending to my day yesterday :). I love coming across animals in strange places ^.^
