Run, Turtle, Run!!

Haha! I soooo wish I had my camera handy this afternoon. K - so Saturday the girls split our hose. They were "watering" the grass but when they were done, they both conveniently forgot to turn the water off. The water pressure was enough to split our hose and now it just sprays everywhere. Well, this afternoon I turned it on just to soak the grass for awhile. Raphael was out eating at the time and the second the water started spraying the area, he stuck his neck out as far as it could go and BOOKED IT over to the hose! Seriously! I have never seen a turtle move so fast! He was going probably about as fast as Paisley can crawl (when she's chasing down a cat or sister she can really move!). Hahahaha! And that's not even the best part! He ran one direction through the water, made a U-turn, and hauled butt through the spray the other way. And then he did it again! The 4th pass ended with him sitting on the split so all the water just sprayed the underside of his shell. Soooo flippin funny! It was great. And the whole time, his neck was st-r-e-t-ched out as far as it could go.

Hey I love your blog! I don't know why I haven't been reading it all this time. When I was reading about your turtle I was imagining the little ones. And then I read a few posts down and saw the pics of him....HES HUGE! I think that would scare me...

I'll be a faithful reader from now on, if you don't mind. :o)
