Machi I think you're absolutely right. I didn't consider a Pseudemys, but on closer inspection I think that fits much better.

I think these are Pseudemys species. They also have red. I will add that to the notes though

Hard to be sure because of their mossy shells, but I believe that is a Painted Turtle. You can see a little bit of red on the plastron on their sides. Great pictures!
