Family Stuff

Remember a few weeks ago I told you guys that I took my grandson to the Reptile Fest and he fell in love with the turtles...WELL he has never stopped talking about them since that day.  Every day he was asking his mom when are we going to get a turtle or are we going to get a turtle today.  They got a bunch of books from the library and read up on them and did some internet searches to read some more and then VIOLA today was the BIG DAY!

So may I please take this time to introduce our newest family member,
Leonardo (aka ~ the blue Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle)

He is a Red Foot Tortiose

and his new house is all set up

and he has made his self at home

and he has had a small dinner of strawberries. 
He has has a long and exhausting day and now he is going under his log and calling it a night.

Welcome to Leonardo! I had a turtle for a pet when I was a kid and loved him!

What a great turtle for Jacob!!! He looks so much at home, and I'm sure he'll be a great addition to the family. If I'm not mistaken, they live a long time, so Jacob won't have to endure his death any time soon.
