You already know from previous posts, that Matthew is our outdoors man. From sun up to sun down, he is outside hunting. Yesterday, was the KING of all captures!
If you are scared of snakes, now would be the time to click outta here. -Mom, leave.
For the rest of you, don't say I didn't warn you....
His first capture was this garter snake:
Ooooooo, soooo creeeeeeeeeeeeeepy!
Second was this rat snake:
YUCK-is your heart pounding?
And lastly, a warty toad:
It's just plain wrong to be this ugly!!!
This is the biggest pile of reptile/amphibian grossness I have ever seen!
On Sunday afternoon, my husband was outside doing yard work when he came across the meanest, most aggressive rat snake we've seen, yet. -knock on wood...ALL OF YOU KNOCK ON WOOD!! PLEASE! I BEG OF YOU...KNOCK ON WOOD!!
And since my little outdoorsman wasn't here, I had to capture it on camera for him. Let me start by telling you that I have an enormous fear of snakes, however in order to earn my "cool mom of boys" badge, I was willing to lay that aside for the sake of some awesome footage. Well, I mean I did my best to lay it aside.
*WARNING* Do not click play if you:
a) are squeamish over reptiles
b) get annoyed with heavy breathing and screaming
c) or, if you have a pace maker.
Are you ready for this?
-is your heart pounding as hard as mine?
OH HAVE MERCY! I can't stand it any longer!
"Ok just stay calm...beeeeeeeee calm, Becky."
-In through the nose, out through the mouth, in through the nose, out through the mouth---deep sigh---

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to seek medical attention and then go play dolls with my daughters.
