In honor of Earthday and because I needed some exercise, I walked with my little guy to the store instead of driving. On the way I found this fellow hitch hiking. Unfortunately, he didn't quite understand that when one hitch hikes, one should stand beside the road, not in the middle of it. Since we were hardly out of our own driveway, I carried him home, got a box (to make the ride in the stroller basket more relaxing) and gave him a lift to the nearby pond. He must have been in a hurry because he hardly gave us time to say bye before he slipped off into the water. However, I did manage to get this quick picture before he completely disappeared.
On our way back from the store, we noticed his buddies sunning themselves on the shore.
