Micah found this little guy outside the other day. And while most snails we find are hidden inside their shell, this particular one was bravely coming out to greet us. He's "the bravest snail I've ever met!", according to Micah.
Micah asked if he could keep it, so I found a jar that would be perfect for little "Snailey's" home. I couldn't help remembering all the times when I was little and collected caterpillars to keep in a jar, making a fun little jungle of grass and twigs inside and punching air holes in the top.
Micah has been infatuated with him ever since - announcing to us that this is his "very first pet!"
And here are a few more pictures of us enjoying the great outdoors recently. Last week, we went down to the States. Of course we had to stop at Edaleen Dairy for the best (& cheapest!) ice cream. That's where we took this great picture:
While we were in Bellingham, we took an evening stroll down the boardwalk.
This looks like Micah is practicing for Kindergarten :)
And earlier this week, a beautiful evening at Mill Lake; having a picnic and watching the ducks.
