Unexpected visitors

After we had put the kids to bed the other night Marshall went outside to load his truck for the morning.  He came inside and asked me to come look at something.....this is usually not a good sign.  I went out front and there on the sidewalk was....


 Now you might not find this exciting, but you need to remember that we live in the desert and we just don't see frogs all that often.  I was so impressed that I went in and got Tyler out of bed to come look it!  He was fascinated but did not want to get very close.  I am ever so thankful that my boy does not like creepy crawly things!=)
Then tonight as I was talking to Corinne on the phone I kept hearing a loud chirping noise.  I looked toward the kitchen and noticed a brown blob on the floor.  I got up to check it out and realized that we had a baby quail in the house.  I have no idea when it came in but I am sure that Tyler left the door open at some point during the afternoon and the poor little guy must have wandered in.  I just hope he finds his way back to his momma!

AWWWW It is a toad. but it is interesting that you have one. Hope your baby Quail finds it's mommy and she takes him back before something else gets it! And you may not have to worry about Tyler, BUT watch out for EMMA(remember Ark.) she will probably bring home anything and everything!!

The Brown Zoo and Safari, awesome! Be thankful for Tyler not liking the creepy crawlies, Brice loves them and will pick up anything. He must always be closely watched.
