    It warmed up today so I thought I'd get some new pics of the little ones out in the sun. I also wanted to show them through their life with us. I'll start with Kresh.

    Here is Kresh the day we got him

    Your posts made T Rex rather jealous so we had to take a trip outside to see what all the fuss was about. It is rather nice out today! :D
