We are now a family of 7!

No, they aren't from my own uterus... I know what you are thinking, "Isn't about time you cranked out another one?" Well, no, these are adopted. The kids are so pumped up! You would think that they actually got to pick out their own siblings. Anywho, they are named "Tyler" and "Dora the Explorer". Actually, Tyler's full name is "Lazy Tyler" since he/she (this part is debateable...although since it is lazy, it is probably a male...AHEM). E. is so stressed out that his isn't doing laps around the habitat. C. named hers Dora the explorer because she can really hoof it around the habitat with the speed of a gazelle. It is amazing! I have decided that the ones that they picked out match their personality. I have heard that pets pick their owners...I guess that goes for hermit crabs too.

By the way, we bought these little critters at Earthbound Trading Company. Have you ever been in there? Okay y'all, there was so much incense burning in there that my lungs are literally petrified. I can't tell you how many people walked (or rather, stumbled) in there with eyes glazed over talking about crystals and swords. Back off DUUUUUDE.....

*Note to self...."Self, don't go within 1,000 feet of that place again".

This is "Lazy Tyler" before we discovered his laziness.

Look at him go! Actually, this is the first and only time that we actually saw his little face.

C. is so excited with her new pet

Hi there!
I sure bet your kids are excited! Mine would love that, but our two cats are enough for me! :) You gave them such cute names!

I love that store, but you are right about the incense! Ack!

Nice to meet you!

Did you buy larger shells for the crabs to switch once they outgrow the other shell?
