The Snake

Here is what we saw on our adventure last week. We were tromping around in a creek, just off of a major trail. We had some friends with us and my friend was the one that spotted the snake. We were all a bit surprised! I was fairly certain that it was a copperhead snake, but decided to take a picture and check when we got home. We gathered the boys a few feet away so that we could show them what it looked like in it's natural surroundings, and then we got out of there! :) I looked up the snake when we got home and confirmed that it was broadband copperhead snake. Yikes! That was enough fun for me for one day!

What did those boys think? I would have been mortified!

I don't think I would have had the guts to even stay long enough to take the picture!!! You're a better mommy than me! That's why I'm nervous about having a boy this time around :-)
