Field Trip

This morning, we decided to take Calvin, Jameson's tortoise, out for a walk in the backyard. Poor Calvin spends 99.9% of this life in the terrarium in Jameson's room so a field trip seemed a good idea.

Calvin liked the area around our tree, filled with woodchips and lilacs, more than he did the grass. We also discovered that he has an impressive bladder capacity. Fortunately, he demonstrated this just as I got him out to the back porch, not while I was carrying him through the house. And I used antibacterial soap to wash off my leg and foot.
