A new member of the family

This past Monday Michael and I went to Petco and we came home with a Ball Python...that is a snake.

It is a baby right now. It is 19 inches long and just shed this past weekend. Ball pythons are supposed to get from 4-6 feet long. Right now he is at the limit for the cage we have. When Michael had his spider (a tarantula) he never came right out and told Wayne. We talked about the spider all the time but Wayne never asked and we never told. On Tuesday Michael had the snake out when the garage door opened and I asked him if he was going to put it away. He said no. Well Wayne's least favorite things alive are spiders and snakes so I didn't know how he would react. He said that he didn't like it and would probably never touch it but since then anyone who has come over he makes sure that Michael shows them the snake...VERY INTERESTING!! Right now the snake is nameless and we are not sure if it is a male or female.

As I was downloading the pictures of the snake and flowers and food (I will blog about these at a later date) I came across this picture of Buzz. I laughed because it is so like him. He loves sleeping on the bed (this one is mine and Wayne's) and on the pillow. This time he drug Wayne's pillow funny. That is our dog.

No, thank you for coming and watching the girls. :) We were able to go to the temple this month without stressing because of you!!!

That is a pet I would not want now. I don't know why I dislike snakes so much because I always had them growing up as pets. I do however like your dog.
