Then it was on to Ethan's Pre-K graduation program. Ms. Pat went with Gina and I. Ethan's school had a program for 7 of the classes yesterday and then 6 classes (2,3 and 4 year olds) including his performed today. They sang some songs and then the 2s and 3s left. Then each graduate received their diploma and a medal.
After taking Ms. Pat home we decided to have barbeque for lunch and went to Crackers which is changing its name to Dave's Brick Pit BBQ. This was the second time we have been there. It was good and the sweet tea is true bbq joint sweet. Oh yeah, we let Gina tag along even though she wasn't having a birthday and had not graduated today.
For dinner we made a barbeque chicken pizza. Then we had a family Wii night.
But the big news of the day was obtaining our first family pet. That's right. We now have a pet...a true live pet...name is Hershey Squirt...a hermit crab. It was Ethan's Pre-K class pet all year. His best buddy Zach had donated him for the class to care for this year. After graduation, Zach's mom was asking Gina if we wanted Hershey Squirt. It seems Zach has another hermit crab who doesn't get along with Hershey Squirt. I walked up while they were talking and agreed very quickly and easily to take Hershey Squirt. The kids have asked about a pet every now and then so I saw this as an opportunity to honor that request with what I assume is a low maintenance pet. Ethan was very excited...VERY EXCITED. And Ashlyn was surprised when she came home from school. Gina has already read up on hermit crabs some and everyone had a good time playing with him (I guess it's a him) tonight.

This morning we are at the Florida Aquarium and petting the stingrays. The kids along played in the water splash park and were up close and personal with a couple penguins at the penguin show.

Today was Evan Longoria Rookie of the Year figure giveaway. We ended up with 6 after a couple people gave theirs to us.
