Introducing… 5 Little Fish!

Brody, Baxlyn, Kylee & Korbin had a great birthday party (which will be blogged about later this week)! Bret and I, along with Chris and Bethany, had planned all week to take them to one of their favorite restaurants, Shogun, that evening for dinner. What the quads didn’t know was that Daddy had gone the night before and bought a fish tank and that we were going to take them after dinner to pick out their own fish! Needless to say they were thrilled (and slightly confused) when we walked them in to Petsmart and broke the news to them! We asked the employees, who I think were just as excited as we were, to point us to the fish that wouldn’t eat each other and that wouldn’t likely die within a few days. Excuse the blurry pics…

…while it took a bit lonnngger for the others to choose. It’s an important decision, ya know!

Once home, we waited (and waited and waited!) for Bret and Chris to put together the stand we bought and then move the tank into place. We all watched while the quads contemplated on what to name their fish. Here they are surrounding Korbin who is proudly holding their new pets in a bag, ready to meet their new home!

Again, excuse the poor quality in pictures. I’ve come to realize the ONLY thing harder to photograph than my five children are their fish.

Introducing “Cliffy”, Kylee’s fish. She chose him because he looks like Chris & Bethie’s dog, George.

Due to a wicked diaper rash, our little man wanted to stay in the upright position as much as possible so we skipped making him sit through dinner and let him stay back with Granny Linda. Chicken Hawk, the solid orange, belongs to Brody! From my own observations, I’d have to say Chicken Hawk is quite an odd fish. There have been multiple occasions when I’ve thought I found him dead, but nope he’s always alive and well….just hanging out at the top of the water…very still…in the corner of the tank…until Bret gently pokes him…

quads fish 6 Korbin’s fish “Fishmo” we’re told is our only female fish. We were also told that she was already pregnant when we bought her. Slightly intrigued and thinking it may be cute to have a couple of baby fish swimming around, I asked the lady just how many baby fish Fishmo would likely have. Her answer? THIRTY to FORTY. I suddenly felt like an amateur when it came to the whole having multiple babies thing! The nice lady assured me that most of her babies would likely be eaten and there wasn’t too much to worry about. Nice. Reluctantly, we still agreed to take her home. She has yet to have any babies but we’re keeping a close eye on her ;)

Baxlyn went a different route and chose a sucker fish. This was the only fish in which they could not tell us the gender. Baxlyn named it “Wally”! Thanks Wally, for being so still, allowing me to get a decent picture, unlike your other tankmates!

All five of the kids love to sit and watch them swim around. I won’t lie, I find myself sitting and staring as well. They love to help feed them, although I’ll also admit, the kid in me loves to feed them too! Here’s to hoping they stay with us for a while before umm… going to Heaven :)

Stay tuned – Birthday Party, 5 Year Stats & TEE BALL!!!
