I think the kids were watching the turtles in the lake in this picture. The kid in the orange shirt is one of our neighbors. Josh apparently didn't want to get too close to the water.
You can see the gator the kids are watching in the bottom right of this picture, swimming away from them.
Gaylene was concerned when a gator went underwater.
Here is a video of a gator swimming up to us. He stayed in the water. Maybe he just wanted a closer look.
