We took another evening walk tonight and Zachary found this:
It's HUGE!! I can't believe these things even live in our neighborhood. The only water around is the fake lake on a nearby golf course, and our house isn't anywhere near it.
And, I'm surprised by how quickly Zachary just scooped this thing up and carried it a block back to our house. Normally, he's pretty squeamish about stuff.
But I guess boys will be boys, right?
It was super dark out, so I'm shocked he could even see this thing, or tell what it was. When he came walking back to me clutching it, I was a little freaked out and asked him if it was real, thinking maybe it was a plastic toy or someone's Halloween decoration.
"Oh, it's real, you're not dreaming," he told me with a huge grin on his face.
This frog actually makes that last one look cute!
He proudly named this guy 'Jumbo'.
But don't worry, we let him go in the dry wash behind our house, so no frogs were actually harmed in the making of this post...
