FredEx


During our trip to the Creation Museum in Kentucky, we went to Newport on the Levee. We went to the aquarium there and then to eat. After eating we were looking at all the kiosks they had set up. They had one where you could get hermit crabs. I went to look at them. They all had painted shells. Mom thought they looked gross (and still does). But I wanted one. Mom asked the man if a hermit crab would be able to last in the car for a few hours. He said " Ma'am, they spent *three hours* on a FedEx plane, they will last in the car. So I picked one out and the man put him in the little case and told us how to take care of him. We also got an extra shell for when he grew out of the one he was in. Then we got in the car and went to the Creation Museum. Afterwards (around five hours later; we ate at the museum, etc.) we got back in the car and my hermit crab had changed shells! We couldn't believe it. Then I realized he needed a name. We were all thinking and Christopher said we should call him FredEx since he came here on a FedEx plane. We call him Fred for short. Now he's doing fine and I love to let him crawl on me. Mom still won't hold him, but, oh well. I think he's cute!
