Almost a prince.

Do you see that in the grass?  That is a toad.  We found them in the garden. I met a toad today! 
Actually I met two toads!

First they hopped and I watched.

Then they hopped some more and I squealed.
Of course I tired to pick it up!
But man, those toads are slippery and squirmy…he kept hopping away.

My daddy taught me the “gentle” way to hold a toad.  I may be bitty, but I don’t understand gentle when I am so excited! 
About the toads!  Two toads!

I picked him up and put him down. 
I picked him up again and I had to show grandpa!
Grandpa laughed and laughed.  I don’t think he has ever seen a toad before. Me either! TWO TOADS!

Mommy was behind the camera and she kept saying ‘No No kiss. No No kiss.”  I really wish they didn’t put those tubes in my ears or I wouldn’t have been able to hear and I would have kissed that toad. TWO TOADS!

And here I thought only Earth worms lived in the garden…I snuck a quick kiss before my mommy could say “No No kiss.”

Add worm and toad to the list of creatures I love…right behind beetles, ants, birds, dogs, cats (poor Zoey), horses, goats, bears, sea otters…
