Alligator's Are Cool

 Matt and the boys went to Colorado for most of Spring Break last week and they had a great time. They went swimming and this was one of their adventures at the alligator farm!

While at the alligator farm they held different lizards and snakes and one of them was a lizard gecko. Kaleb's been begging for a pet for years and we've failed at the fish thing so now we get to attempt lizard geckos as two of them came home with us tonight. They're just babies right now and in 9-12 months they should be adult sized. (Let's pray they make it that long, they live about 10-20 years) I'll try to take a picture to show you Deigo Change (Ashton's name, he wanted just 'change' since he changes but we convinced him to also come up with a first name and that could be his last name) and Spencer Snell (Kaleb wanted to name his Fast since he scampers around but then remembered Snell in German means 'fast' so Spencer Fast).

I missed them while they were gone but I stayed really busy and even planted a bunch of raspberries that I transplanted from my grandpa's garden in our backyard. (And I have the farmers tan to prove it!) I'm hoping for lots of raspberry picking this summer.

I can't believe it's April, I'm excited for:
  • warmer weather
  • dinner's outside
  • grilling
  • camping
  • s'mores
  • longer days
...not as excited for:
  • weeding
  • mowing
  • basically...yard work
