And I shall call you Toodles.

While cleaning out the little girls sandbox (see 03/05/2009 post for what the sandbox looked like) I found a baby turtle. I have no idea how he got in there and he was the only one I found. Always needing a good post, here you go.

And you shall be my little friend.

mesmerizing eyes.

After taking my pictures I put him in the pond where he can grow up to be a big Toodles. See, he has already made a friend. Mr. fishy is swimming by

adios

Goodbye Toodles, I barely knew thee.

Wonder how he made it to the sandbox? Would a turtle lay just one egg, or is he the sole survivor?
