Turtles!

My Sweeties and I went to turtle day at the local Audubon yesterday.
We saw lots of different turtles, some in water and some on land.

Notice Jerzie's hands behind her back, no touching for her. Payton didn't even want to touch which is unusual.

Some of the turtles were huge.

Hello there!

Polk-a-dot legs.

Milton, the resident box turtle.

Do you know why they are called box turtles? They have a 2 part bottom with a 'hinge' so they can close their shell up tight.

We even got to make turtles.

A fun afternoon was had by all!

I'm with Jerzie. Cute they are but don't want to touch.Much prefer the bead and paper ones.

You are the best Grandma ever! Those girls look like they have been sipping some Miracle Grow....and Bloom Booster as they are as lovely as any flower I have seen lately.
