Tortoise and the Hare

3 years ago

Today started out like any other Monday morning. I was cleaning up the house and went out to the garage to throw out some trash. Much to my surprise, I opened the door and there was a huge tortoise looking up at me!! I've lived in Arizona for almost 8 years now and have never even seen a tortoise (except for in the zoo). It was so cool to see up close and I couldn't believe was how fast he moved! He got half way down our street before I could get outside to take some pictures. We followed him around for a while and Odette was so intrigued by this little guy.

Needless to say this was probably the most random thing to ever happen. I can't wait for the day I'm reading the Tortoise and the Hare to Odette and I'll be able to tell her the Tortoise came to visit us lol. Only in the desert! Hope you are all having a great Monday!
