so this summer camping at prince gallitzin yet again, we get the bright dumb idea of walking up to the water tower from campground. we get down there to the beaver dam wooden deck thing and the wife wants to take a picture of the kids. (i'll have to find that picture, then you will see what i'm talking about). i look at my daughter and there's a huge bug on her sleeve. i start laughing and the wife told me to not say anything because my daughter would freak out. well i walk over and i bust out laughing. then i showed her where the bug was, she starts screaming and crying. well i guess you had to be there for that one, seriously, it was funny then.

anywho, we proceed to walk towards the tower. we're walking up this grass path, and my boy (he 7 now) is out if front of us about 30 feet. i look down, and i see this snake. i yelled up and said, "look what you walked over". he comes back and asks what it is. i said "look at the snake". he says "i ain't afraid of a snake". well as soon as he see's it he runs behind me. the rest of the way to the tower he stayed behind us.

so we head back to the campsite, and upon walking into the site i see this chunk of rope about 12-15 inches long. the boy is yet again in front of me. i grab this rope and throw it on him, all while yelling, SNAKE! The boy starts jumping around, flailing his arms, jumping in circles. oh boy, if you could have just seen the look on his face and saw him jumping around like crazy. i said, i thought you weren't afraid of a snake. he didn't say a word and just went straight into the camper.

wife was kind of telling me that was mean blah blah all while she is laughing.

It's all fun and games when jcharne is teasing the kids but if anyone would have thrown a snake (fake or not) at him, he would be screaming and running in the opposite direction. I know....I've seen it!

I will have to remember that...

The old fake snake under the bed sheets would be a good trick... ;)
