it was pretty exciting. we had seen worms and roly poly bugs and caterpillars, but never a snake! i was very impressed that when i asked lala to hold it for a picture, she didn't even hesitate! that's my girl!
lala was excited to show nani when she got home from school and daddy when he got home from work. she found a temporary housing facility, in a shoebox just perfect for a snake, complete with dirt and weeds! we kept him there until nani and mitch got home. then lala said she wanted to keep him for one night. so we did!
this morning, before we released him back to his home, nani wanted to hold him. she was a bit squirmy with the snake and dropped him several times before mitch could snap this picture:
good bye our slithery friend!
