Here are the long awaited photos of Chuck the magnificent! He is the only pet in our humble abode (unless you count the fish). This was Gabe's 7th birthday present about a month or so ago. He is quite the character. I know what you're thinking..."He's just a boring turtle!" NO! He is an exciting 'tortoise' who provides loads of fun to our sometimes mundane lives. As you can see in the picture above, he loves to go outside and eat my petunias! Naughty little guy.... But we make sure he doesn't wander too far and we lose him forever (Elmore!).
Now, onto other important bits of information!!! Gabe can now ride his bike! (meaning, no more training wheels!) His Dad kept reminding him that he could ride his bike when he was 4.( Lance can do all those types of things well.) But Gabe is a really cautious kind of guy and decided that 7 was a good age for him. He spends every spare second out on the street practicing his new skills! Yay for you, bud! Congrats!
