Everyone Gets an Upgrade

When we first found our little turtle Wedette back in May she was literally the size of a bottle cap. Well in the past 10 months she has grown quite a bit, and even though she is still rather small we saw that she was starting to outgrow the tank we had for her.

*Wedette (on the rock) not long after we got her in her smaller tank*

Lucky for us about a month or so before we moved Kristian's buddy decided to get rid of his large fish tank and said we could have it for a small price. If we planned on keeping Wedette we knew she needed a bigger home so we snatched it up real quick. We had the new larger tank on an old beat up table and decided when we moved into our new house we wanted something nicer as well as more sturdy.

Kristian being the creative little handy-man he is was able to take some leftover cedar wood from his job and make a new table to put Wedette's tank on.

*Voila! The new table Kristian built and stained and it only took him two sessions of a few hours each. I love it and I've now tasked him with building a similar looking new tv stand for the living room. *

*Here is Wedette's new larger tank on the new table in the townhouse. Pardon the ridiculously bright light at the top. She now has so much more room to swim around and it's on a much nicer looking table*

So not only did we upgrade to a nicer, larger home but so did our turtle.

*Our favorite turtle*
