How To Have A Perfect Day:
1) Find an exceptionally shy Eastern Box Turtle on a beautiful day. Watch and wait for him to come out and smile at you.

2) ...and wait

3) Have a little playtime while we wait.
4) Take a little nap.
|a catnap, perhaps?|
|Is that turtle ever coming out?|
6) Have a snack, everyone.
|best big brother ever.|
8) Practice long-jump for your fitness badge for boy scouts.
|accuracy is key.|
The turtle never came out. We ended up too busy to be upset about it. He's somewhere exploring now, laughing at the silly family who waited on him all day - all perfect day.
