First critter of the year....

This morning Porter found a dead baby bunny in our driveway.  I assume Ramsey found it, killed it and brought it home.  He was so sad for it.  We decided to bury it out back and said a little prayer for Jesus to take care of him in Heaven.  Porter kept saying "I'm so sad for that baby bunny!"  :(  Looks like we need to keep closer tabs on Ramsey this spring.  

This evening we found a garter snake in the yard near our wood pile.  I caught him so the boys could hold him for a bit.  We had fun feeling his scales and watching him move through our hands.  Ryan wasn't so thrilled... he wanted to chop him with a shovel.  Porter named him "No Feet" and wanted to keep him (ok, so did I-- a little bit!).  We held him for a bit and then released him out back near the swamp.

Pretty soon the salamanders and baby toads will be popping up all over the yard!  YAY!
