Ants and Caterpillars

And the creatures continue to arrive...

The first few pictures are from the day the ants came, as the boys got everything ready. We only had a few escapees, and we were able to - eventually - wrangle them back into the habitat. The ants have been working hard the past couple of days, and this is what things look like now:

Today they got their caterpillars, which are tinier than any of us envisioned. They will eventually turn into Painted Lady butterflies, which we'll release into the yard.

And on a totally unrelated note, Tegan's latest accomplishment is that she is now adding "getty go" (spaghetti-o) to the end of her "uh-oh"s. Here's a current picture.

I do so love that girl!

Hey Jen :)
I love coffee, wine and chocolate without nuts too :)

Great to *see* you and your cute little kids!

That's what our ant farm looked like too! It's so fun. I can't wait to see the changes in the caterpillars/tadpoles. I wonder what they'll look like when we visit you :)
