it looked so cool i really wanted a picture of it. but since we were almost late to school, i was getting pictures while urging emma to get her shoes & socks on faster so we could zip to the school before they were late! lol. so so the story of our life!
this evening we headed to petco to pick up some more goldfish. we picked up 15 last week for our backyard pond. we thought 15 would be a good number... until we got them in there and realized that was like dropping 15 pennies in your living room. they're there, but they don't fill it up. that and those little buggers can hide like no body's business! they burrow in the mud at the bottom of the pond. so we thought picking up some buddies may coax them out a bit... or at least let us get a few more glimpses of life in the pond.
so we picked out 100'ish fishies to come home with us. gotta love 13 cent fish! the petco lady who helped us was so stinkin' funny, and totally reminded me of donna downey. who is also a total crack up. sorry donna, you're totally the petco girl to me now. :)
then came the great release, and boy am i glad we went for the big numbers. because i think we lost something like 30 of those ones between the pet store and the pond/release. poor little guys. there's a mass grave on the side of the pond for them right now. hopefully it doesn't discourage the ones left behind. either way, it was a great way to spend $13. :)
