Well, last week we got invited to a birthday party for a little girl in Gator's class.
They obviously have a lot more "disposable" income than I do. Of course, that's not surprising since all of my income gets "disposed" of every time I change a diaper...or three!
Anyway, these folks had hired a petting zoo for their 2 year old's party!
Sorry I forgot to take the camera...but truthfully, I was too busy protecting the animals from my kids to be taking pictures anyway.
Gator's favorite thing to do was chase the 2 geese, Sonshine took a particular shine to the tortoise....even thought the poor guy looked hot and "helped" him into the water trough for a little swim!! (We pulled the poor guy out quickly!)
I looked him up and it says all you need to feed em is weeds...we have LOTS of those!
This little guy was incredibly friendly! He stayed out of his shell while the kids were holding him and everything.
Might make a good Birthday gift...wonder how they get along with cats??
Subvet vetoed my hermit crabs in painted shells for gifts idea.....
Yeah, I know, just what I need...one more "kid" to take care of!! heehee...but he was cute!
We were talking on the way home about how gentle Sonshine is. This kid has always had a love of animals! If he proves to be good in school we'll probably encourage him to be a vet.
Who knows what the future may hold?
