A new friend

 

Owen loves to play outside early in the morning, right before breakfast, because the 100 degree weather during the later part of the day is just no fun. Yesterday we sat on the driveway and watched some construction workers who were a couple of houses down. All of the sudden a tiny little lizard walked by us, so I picked him up and put him in a container so Owen could observe.

Check him out! He was really tiny! No more than 2 inches big and very very skinny!

At first Owen was a little unsure, he didn't know if he wanted to sit with the lizard, but then he decided it would be fun to give the lizard some mulch.

Then Owen really enjoyed sitting with his new friend!

Although, Mommy ruined the fun by picking up the lizard by his tail (on accident, he was quite squirmy), and causing him to break off in 2 pieces. OOOPS. So we let him go! Then it was time to go inside, it was already 90 degrees at 8am!

And this is Owen’s new cheesy smile. He makes us laugh!

Today we are supposed to get record heat. YIKES! I think we will try to stay inside as much as we can!
