The Turtles Are Out


The weather is absolutely beautiful lately here. This week and last week it has been in the 80's. It is even warm enough that our 2 pet turtles have come out of their winter hibernation. They have doubled in size again. I've decided we should change their names to miracle 1 and miracle 2 since they have gotten out of their cage so many times but keep returning to us somehow. Remember the time last year when one of them was gone for over 2 months and then suddenly reappeared one afternoon on our doorstep. We are lucky we still have them.

How fun that you have pet turtles. Jesse would LOVE that. Do they just live in your yard? Where do the hibernate?

The turtles live in our backyard. We made a little cage for them out of cinderblocks. They dug themselves a pretty deep hole and they hibernate in there all winter without eating. Crazy huh. We have had them since they were brand new babies 2 1/2 years ago. They are the best pets because they are silent and very clean and low maintenance. Alan's parents have big 14 year old turtles. they are huge and remind me of dinosoars.

sounds like our dogs.. they have escaped so many times over the past ten years, we are convinced they know how to operate the cross walk buttons.
