    I just wanted to share a few pictures of some of Jacob's pets. There's Rico the dog, who Jacob found and brought home and there's Spike and Taska, two praying mantis' we found and befriended. Anyone have any funny pics of their animals to share? Thanks for looking!

    Ok, the Praying Mantis? No thank you. Those are OUTSIDE TOYS!! We have alot that come around here and hang out on the balcony. They'll fly around and dive bomb hubbys head, then he goes running like a little school girl. It's pretty funny! lmao

    LMAO that's so funny, I can picture it! The mantis' are pretty gentle things, one of them is so nice, but the other one is extremely mean. DH is the only one who will touch her. I won't touch either one, lol.

    Cute pics of the dog. You can tell they love each other. I'm not really into bugs though.

    Aww how cute is Jacob and his pup! :D Not so sure about the bugs though, athough my Joey would love them - he keeps pet snails, slugs and beetles but he has to leave them OUTSIDE!

    And Lauren with that cute little pup - so adorable! :D

    Darling pictures of both kids and their pets. I have a praying manthis ride around with me on the mower when I'm mowing the golf greens. They are so neat!

    LMAO - The praying mantis is DHs pet! And Jacob loves to hold it! One of them just layed eggs in the cage. Now DH will have 100s of them if they live. No, I don't know how many are in there, more than two tho. I'm not too fond of them, even tho they are pretty nice.

    I'm loving the kids sleeping with the dogs...they are so cute. I don't have any bugs, but I do have a great lizard picture that I took while I was hiking about 2-3 months ago. I thought he (or she) was absolutely beautiful.

    I know :). I was hiking the same place on 2 occasions and both time got a picture of this lizard. I think it's the same one because the park ranger told me they were quite rare. He couldn't believe I had seen him in June and again in July. I take all kinds of pictures and send to the grandson's they love them :) :). Granddaughter is girly, so she like the deer and rabbit pictures :).

    I'm going to show him to my two when they come in from school - Joey will probably think he's cool and Lily will think it's 'too sweet to eat'! Don't ask me where she got that from, I have no idea but she says it about everything from kittens to quilts! :D

    What a typical boy!! Too cute.

    And Terri, I think it's hysterical how scared Hubs is of bugs. It is too funny!!!!
    But he'd probably strangle you for ratting him out to the board!!

    Hey, I LOVE to see a manly man wearing bright colors. One of my fave men's designers is Alexander Julian. :D
