Grab Yourself Some Popcorn

...'cause it's movie time!

To lead off, let's take a look at Ali in her indoor-friendly wagon. A big thanks to G-Mommy for the ingenuity for putting this thing together! Not only does it entertain the munchkin for 10-15 minutes at a time, it gives us a good little workout in the meantime as well.

For the feature presentation, here is a series of videos we'll call "Alex and the snake." That's right. Snake. As in, there was a huge rat snake curled up on our window ledge yesterday when we got home from the family reunion (more on that in the next post!).

 While we respected the fact that it was simply snoozing on the refreshing coolness of the shaded bricks, we didn't really want it to stick around and think that it could seek the even more refreshing coolness of our indoor AC. Something had to be done, and we aren't a family that kills animals if we have any choice in the matter. So that brings us to the video saga of the snake catch-and-release. Enjoy!

'Tis true. Never a dull moment in the Chausovsky household.

I vehemently disagree with your closing premise that a "live snake is better than a dead snake". However, that was some seriously good entertainment. Kudos to Alex for doing that in shorts and flip flops. I think Chad would have been in a full hazmat suit. And kudos to you Kelly, for being a dedicated journalist and not getting personally involved in the story. =)

WOW! creepy. I will need to build up some courage before watching the video.

Um, ditto pp about the hazmat suit. But then again, I would have NEVER attempted to do anything but point and scream like a little girl if I saw that on my window sill.
I literally LOL'ed when you were all like, "Grab it behind it's head!" Yeah. Sure.
