Backyard Friends!


The girls have had a lot of fun during this "Ski Week" playing outside.  Today we had a great day at the park (pictures still on the camera).  But when we're not at the park, we've still managed to spend a lot of time outside - in the backyard, of course!

The girls have had a great time digging for worms - or "friends" (as Paprika likes to call them).  Her first worm she found she named Wormy. 


They were soooo excited when they found him hanging out in this little hole they dug:


Wormy quickly became a new pet, and Paprika had to take him inside right away and make him comfortable.


Here is the little habitat she made for him:


Later that day, she gave him a little too much water, and well...that was the end of Wormy.  But not to fear, we've found MORE "friends" since then.  Paprika found a huge worm this morning and named her:  Elizabeth.  Why?  I do not know.  Haha.


Needless to say, I quite enjoy these pets that take zero care on my part - and no trips to the pet store for supplies.  ;-)  I never thought I'd say this, but Paprika and Ginger can have as many worms as pets as they want.  Just so long as they stay in their little habitats!  Yikes!  :-)

The End.

Worms have lived (briefly) in my house as well...but I hard at being cool with it...worms just aren't as cuddly as puppies! ;) Love P's caring spirit! How did she handle the death of Wormy? That's what would be stressing me out! :)
