Today, during a nice mother's day nature walk with Trav's parents, we came across this little guy, being attacked by a bunch of angry red ants:
I scooped him up, named him Jimmy, and squealed a lot while Travis pulled off his nasty little attackers (which wasn't easy, they were pretty determined.) We took him down the street to a very nice nearby pond where lots of his kind hang out.
I think his mother would be happy. Happy Mother's Day, turtle mom.
(Speaking of excellent reptiles, you should check out our cake toppers. I'm pretty proud, considering all I did was glue the headwear on.)
