Pet For a Day

It came down to a behemoth roach, a fledgling bird that landed on Dad in bed, and this harmless baby gecko.  Thankfully, the lizard won the contest and became pet for the day.  Jonah wore him like a tattoo for the better part of the morning then released him back into the wild (our back yard) so that he can grow and return another day to climb our bedroom walls, eating his fill of mosquitos.

Pineapple Gardener

This is Grandma, planting a pineapple:
She's actually re-planting a pineapple, because the roaming cows came along last night and dug up what she had planted a couple weeks ago.  It already had roots and everything.  At least they had the decency to leave some fertilizer behind.

Fruity Cereal

Dad thought this looked like a taste of home, so he brought it home for us.  Can you say knock off?  Funny thing is, we never did eat Froot Loops in the States, but there is something that just tastes American about this stuff.  It's our favorite breakfast comfort food here.
(Since the taking of this picture, we have found Kellogg's Froot Loops at the grocery store.  For just under six dollars a box it's a real bargain.)

Bat Killers

These pictures were taken just days after we moved into our new house.  There was a bat living in Grandma's room and she sent us in to get it out.  We chased it around and swung this baton and this flyswatter at it.  Dad finally made contact with the flyswatter.
We carried it out into the yard on the baton and gave it an improper burial.  
We publish these photos as a memorial and an apology to the flying mice.  We know now that they are our friends and the eaters of many insects.
