Backyard wildlife!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen #wi[was]dn last Sunday.  

I got home from work to a little backyard fire, so I decided to leaf blow and get the yard ready to plant grass seed.  We are determined to grow grass down our back hill this year.  It used to be covered in pachysandra but Mike pulled it all out. [Do any of you have experience with pachysandra??? It is the worst plant/weed ever!!!].

Well in the midst of leaf blowing, weeding, chopping wood [still from the winter storm], my roommate Jeff spotted something in our back stream.  It was a turtle! Check out how he went and got it in the video below.  Don't worry, we brought him back after a few minutes!

And just in case that wasn't enough of an animal fix, here are a couple more videos.  I think I've mentioned before Roxy's love of Nerf darts.  Well, lately we've been hiding them in funny places around the house.  Here are parts 1 and 2 of her trying relentlessly to get that dart.

Oh, and she's been really bad at sharing lately.  She insisted on more room on the couch the other night haha...

We don't have turtles that big around here in the wild... so cool! They block youtube at my work, can't wait to watch these videoes when I get home!

Our cats are the same way with sharing, hehehe.
