Whooo arrre youuu?

Our yard is overrun with caterpillars. Chad has been clearing weeds, and keeps finding these little guys:

They are fat, squishy, and have provided many hours of entertainment for Bree and Mason. They're called white-lined sphinx larvae (Chad says he remembers calling them tomato caterpillars).

There are probably about 15 of them in the little terrarium Chad uses to temporarily house whatever cool critter he's found so the kids can look at them. Bree insisted on taking the pictures.


 And Mason insisted she take a photo of him and his new clone trooper.

And who knows? Maybe in a few weeks we'll have 15 of these in our home.
