He was hanging around the yard with my kids this morning, unbeknownst to me.
Would you like me to introduce you to our sneaky visitor?
I tried to catch him for the kids, but only got his tail. After that he slithered off into the trees. I ran over to the back of the neighbors yard, but it went into the brush.
Of course, I used that moment to teach the kids (briefly) about how snakes smell.
Afton was just sad she couldn't hold him. Maybe her next birthday party will be snake themed with a real live snake she can hold!
