Attack of the Snails

Our home has been infiltrated by snails. They are everywhere...well, they're everywhere on the outside of our house. We seriously counted about 10 snails (that we could see) on one outside wall and then accumulated a few more out of just a small section of our front yard.


...and then there was this one little loner on our back porch. My little Ruby just sat and watched it without bothering it all. She's so sweet.

I'd say that he's not so bad lookin when you get close up.

I don't know much about snails, what they eat, what they do, or whatever their purpose in life is (if they have one)...but I am definitely going to google it.

Keep on Keepin on.

Jake picked up what we thought was a snail shell the other day that was outside on Nana's porch. He carried it home, and carried it around all day. He kept throwing it all over the house and banging it on the floor and was even putting it in a bowl and shaking the ever living crap out of it. He left it on the coffee table before going to bed that night.
The next morning I heard him say, "Mommy, Mommy! Come see! The snail is poking his head out."
Sure enough that damn resilient thing was sliming its way cross the coffee table.
