Bahamian Wildlife

Back in Washington, it was a common occurrence to see deer grazing on your front lawn in military housing. I had one friend tell me a story of how she woke up one morning and watched a doe give birth outside her window. Sadly, I never got to see anything quite that exciting, but the boys and I have witnessed many deer families wandering the neighborhood.

Here in the Bahamas, we get to see wildlife of another sort. This morning, while we were outside playing in the mud and puddles from yesterday's rainstorm (yep, we use the bathtub a lot here; I figure getting dirty and wet is a benefit of living in a place that is always warm), we were able to witness this little herd waltzing up our street:

I'm really not sure who was more excited, the boys or I.
