The other day our family was outside enjoying this beautiful fall air when all of a sudden my daughter screams…when I followed her gaze I saw the cutest snapping turtle making his way up our sidewalk! Our house is on a lake so that is where he came from. We watched it a while. He was a lot faster then I thought he’d be. Maybe that had something to do with the children running circles around him.
Then crazy dad put on gloves to pick the turtle up. That turtle was not too happy about that. And we walked it to the lake and tossed him in with a plunk! And off he swam. I just hope the alligator leaves him alone.
It was fun and the kids are still talking about “our” turtle!
