Snappin turtle and swing time

We woke up to this snapping turtle in the back of the house. Ryan tried to get a picture of it, but was scared to get too close to her. I think she was looking for a place to lay her eggs. Last year we had little babies on our patio and Ry and Steve have two of them in our living room. I hope they consent to giving them up before they are this size.
This is little Alli looking like a pissed off little elf as Steve said the other day. She gets over tired sometimes and then commences a little crying before she falls asleep. She likes her swing and it usually puts her to sleep. Today we are venturing out to the farmer's market and a ball game tonight.
