A trip to Petco

So we went to Petsmart first, but they didn't have what we wanted, so we went to Petco.  They have a few novelties that Petsmart doesn't have.  Like child-sized carts.
and small mammal cages that are easier to see the animals in.  Erin like the guinea pigs.  She calls them "rhinos."  Why?  Because on the movie Bolt there's a hamster named Rhino.  Only, he's a hamster the size of a guinea pig.
Than we went over to the fish and got 5 ghost shrimp and a bamboo shrimp.  I decided that shrimp would be better bottom feeders than catfish because they won't be aggressive to the babies.  (Still not sure what I'm planning on doing with the babies.  Matt's suggesting that I wait until they're a little bigger then feed them to cichlids...you know, breed our own cichlid food...)
So here's the aquarium now
and the bamboo shrimp
and one of the ghost shrimp.  Needless to say, they're hard to take pictures of.
And for pure random cuteness, Erin reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar"
