Our pet SNAKE!

The other day Kennedi and I were outside walking around the yard and as we walked by one of our window wells something grabbed my eye and for some reason I looked in to find a HUGE Black Widow Spider. I walked closer to check it out and then saw this HUGE snake that has made a nice little home down there as well. I kinda freaked out and yelled "there's a snake!!" and we both ran in the house. Now I'm not really a wussy girl, I can handle a lot and snakes don't necessarily scare me, I was just completely shocked, I wasn't expecting it.

I then went down stairs to inspect it from the window and here it is. We never stretched it out to see how long it actually was, but I'm guessing around 3ft. I'm also guessing it'd been down there a while because it had shed it's skin.




Sense Shane was out town, I called his dad to come over and get it for me.




Dax decided he needed to help too, so he went into the garage and got the shovel and came back to get it....so funny!
Here is the skin.....



Dax was pretty interested in it....luckily by this time Kenna was at dancing or she would have had nightmares for months!

Oh sick, I don't blame you for screaming I would have to. The other day we had one in our garage that snuck in and luckily it was Darin that found it. He kicked it out and Mason and his friends played with it all day:) I hate snakes, they are sick.

Oh Nasty! I absolutely hate snakes. I can handle a lot too but snakes horrify me. So what kind was it? It doesn't look like the garter snakes we have up here....

Oh my gosh! I am not a wussy girl either except when it comes to snakes!!! I hate them! Good thing you had someone around to help!! I love the pics of Dax being a big helper! That is exactly where Payten would be too! Little boys are so cute!
