We recently welcomed a new member to our family and have named him “Aesop”.



We chose him from a selection that included several of his ‘friends’.


My husband and daughter, Gracie, were very excited about the newest member of our family.


We strapped him in and began our journey home where his new home awaited.

Now at this point, you may be wondering if Aesop is a cat or dog.

The answer is neither.  

However, I will give you a couple of hints:

 – We did adopt Aesop from a shelter (of sorts)

-We don’t actually own him – we are his ‘caretakers’.

-His name may give you a clue as to what type of animal he is.

If you think you know that answer OR are tired of guessing, click here to see the newest member of our family.
