Ringing rocks...


we took the kids to Ringing Rocks State Park. It is a place, where you tap rocks with your hammer, and they "ring".
So, we loaded everyone up, equipped with hammers and off we went. We were there years ago with my niece and her cousin, when Alex was about 6 months old. The girls had fun.
He has a better time this time. Dana took him out on the boulder field, and let him tap away. Can I just tell you they loved it? What's not to love? Whacking rocks with a hammer, is high on any kids list. After that, we decided to take them on a hike. OF coarse, we had to hit every rock we saw, with a hammer, to see if it too would ring. I did manage to get them all to sit still, for 2.5 seconds, to get a pic of them all together. We realized, that this park is actually closer to our house than we thought. Funny, it took us 45 min. to get there, and only 20 to get home...Sometimes, we are both a little blond...

Do you have ANY idea how many hammers my family has lost in that rock field? I have always wanted to take the boys, my patents took us there so many times as kids - now I am going to have to do it for sure! Trish

Awesome! My parents took us there when we were kids. Then I took my stepkids there. I hiked back there in the winter one time and there was snow on the ground. The waterfall was frozen over. Wish I could find that picture. I know you could get a really good pic Steph!
