New pet


So as much as we loved our mother duck and her nine cute ducklings, they only stuck around for about 2 days. Today I looked out the window and there was pet #2, a snake, right there in our backyard. (What is with our backyard being a wildlife reserve anyway?) This is not a picture of our actual snake, he slithered away into the bushes before I could get out my camera. However, Sam (Dallin named him) looks exactly the same as the snake in this picture. So it looks like he is a Garter snake, which is good news since they are harmless. Though I'm sure that Jason will be less than excited about this since snakes are the only animal that he is actually afraid of...
