drip, drip, drop, little april showers

A break from the every day scenery of the city is needed every now and then. For a few weeks we've meant to go see the snake pits in Narcisse, Manitoba but the weather every Sunday has been rainy. Obviously, cold blooded creatures aren't very active when it's cold out, so we called it off more than once. This was the last week of the snake mating season, so we decided a few April showers wouldn't melt us, and ended up having a good time. We held a few snakes, walked 3k in the spring rain and enjoyed a pretty prairie forest.

Now, Luke wants a pet snake. Badly. I'm not entirely opposed. Maybe when he turns 7. Do you have any experience with pet snakes that you can share with us?
