Snake Pits > Playgrounds

Boy [n]:  a noise with dirt on it

We tried out a new park yesterday. The playground soon lost value when the "snake pit" was discovered. I decided to let the boys have a very dirty 90 minutes in the rocky ditch. Included, but not limited to, free rock climbing. 
Rotary Park, 2260 Dayton-Xenia Rd.

This 72 acre park features eight softball diamonds, four T-ball diamonds, and two baseball diamonds, as well as a large picnic shelter, play structure and various soccer fields and volleyball courts.
I did not allow them to play near the drain or the big rocks [aka home to snakes I'm sure...although rumor has it Ohio has no poisonous snakes]. I sat right next to them and took pictures.

  4. Great pictures, but SNAKE PIT?!?! I'm terrified of snakes, so I would have been in the car and long gone if I had been there and heard those words! Looks like they had a great time though!

  7. I love the park photos you're taking (and all the others, too)- and I love the picture where Solomon looks like he's hanging off the edge of a cliff and he's clinging to Nation as his only hope. To answer you, we have a Baby Bjorn synergy carrier that I really like and I love our camera it's a Canon EOS 50D with just the standard lens.

  8. The snake pit definitely looks more fun than the playground. I love that you give them the opportunity to explore and play!
