New Addition


We added a new addition to our family this evening and it definitely was not the addition we have been waiting for! No, Marlee is still happily growing in my belly but I would like to introduce Scuba Steve!
Yes, he is in a giant bucket.
Nicholas and Isaac passed him on the road and decided it would be a good idea to bring him home. I am not exactly a fan of bringing stray critters home but he is kinda cute - for a turtle.
We did a little research and found out it is most likely a Midland Painted Turtle. They like a moist habitat so I am thinking we will make him a nice home until we release him back into the 'wild'. Turtles can live up to 40 years old which is a bit longer of a commitment then I am willing to take on. 


We also did a little experiment tonight! We attempted to make a bottle of Mountain Dew glow in the dark. The original pin is here:
And it is supposed to look like this:
How To Make 'Glow In The Dark'  Mountain Dew

We collected all the ingredients.
Mixed it all together.

Annnnd nothing. Not even a little glow. Bummer.

Scuba Steve was not impressed.

It might not have worked out the way we wanted but we had fun doing it. I also did some crafting today but after being short on fabric - AGAIN - I will have to save it for another post.

Marlee has been pretty quiet today. No contractions just some strong movement. Doctors appointment tomorrow with an ultrasound to see how big she is. Praying for a nice 6 pound babe!
