Our Little Dragon

Recently Catherine and I have become the owners of a new pet. Yesterday Catherine, her mom, and I all went to Catherine's cousins tee-ball game. I wish I would have taken my camera because these little kids made me laugh. They would be out in the outfield picking wedgies, the girls would do cartwheels, and some were just as serious as could be. The combination of all three made for a very pleasant and fun filled evening.

It wasn't until on the way home that we got our new little friend. We all were a little hungry and wanted to stop for a quick snack. McDonald's was the closest stop, so we pulled over and got a quick bit to eat. Somehow Micky D's got our order confused and gave me a Happy Meal. Little did I know that they also put a surprise at the bottom. It was a DRAGON!!! A fire breathing, flying, scaly dragon.

We did not have much of a choice but to take him home and let him live with us. I mean, he is a dragon, you kinda have to do what he says.


Here is our dragon. He was wanting to help me type this blog, but his feet were too big and he could not make his words correctly.


Here dragon is doing a little exploring. He said he was hungry and decided to see if there was anything in these pots.


We played a quick game of Hide and Go Seek. This is where I found him. He was buried in the grass plant thing that we have on the bookshelf.


One of his recent kills. He was very proud to report that he took this big fella down!


One thing that most people don't know about dragons is that they love to help out with laundry. Hopefully, he will be helping Catherine with this stuff and I will be released of my duties.


Apparently he was not satisfied with the huge bird he caught and discovered some biscuits. But not even a dragon wants to eat a biscuits with nothing on it.


I suggested that he try some strawberries on it, but you can tell by the look on his face that he was not diggin' that idea.


How 'bout some good ole butter dragon? Nope, he wanted the spreadable kind.


Well he found the spreadable kind, but it was guarded by a big mean salt pig. But I think we all know in a showdown between a dragon and a pig who will win...


The dragon of course! After a huge battle, he stands proudly by his butter. I can tell he is going to fit in just fine around here.


After a long and stressful day, all he wanted was a hot shower. However, he still can't get the concept that he needs to be under the water. Looks like I still have some training to do with my dragon.

I will be sure to keep updating everyone on the adventures of my dragon. I am going to try to take him with me to work cows this morning. Who knows, it could all end up as BBQ.

**Disclaimer**
Some of you may think it is rather silly that I am blogging about a kid's meal toy. But, it find it rather funny and that is what the little Elves that are sitting beside me are telling me to do.

  1. You would get along great with my 5 year old! ;) Maybe he could come over to play? He has a few dragons he could bring.

    Love the processing on the photos! Did you use an action? Or do you work in Lightroom?

  6. That salt pork did look mean! Hilarious!!! I wish I could post pics from my phone b/c I have your dragon's blue-double headed sister on the shelf in my cube at work. She's double headed, so I'm not sure if I have dragons or a dragon with a split personality. What are you going to name ya'll's newest edition? Newt? Sorry, I was just trying to incorporate both ya'll's last names into it. Good luck! : )

  7. The McDragon Adventures --- I'm lovin' it! ;-D Dillon has several if yours wants to come over for a playdate. I agree with AmandaAnne though, it definitely needs a name.

  10. Love the new pet Luke! Do you and the dragon have conversations like Cat and Dixie...if so I'm curious how the talks go. Oh and by the way, isn't tee-ball cute to watch?!? Wedgie pickers, nose pickers, kids sitting down in the outfield...endless entertainment!

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! What will you think of next?! Hey my daughter has a few of those dragons herself...ummm....that tends to make me think maybe we go through the drive-thru at Mickey D's a little too often. Oh well! Your blog is a must read! I love when there is a new post...can't wait to see what you two are up to next. NEVER a dull moment at your house that's for sure.

  14. Ha ha! This is awesome. Watch out - he'll soon be going on family roadtrips and vacations!! Your new pet requires a name...I'll be waiting to hear what you pick ;)

  15. I must say, the pics of the Little Ranch's McDragon are WAY better than that red-hat knome from Travelocity. You better be careful, if he doesn't end of going on ya'll's family roadtrips and vacays, he may be a hot commodity for pranks-going on other people's vacays. Keep a close eye on him-ya'll may be onto something big! ; )

  20.

I will have to start getting more kids meals. for sure.
