Snips and Snails

Snails are PLENTIFUL here.

Huge ones.

The kids like em.
My poppies and I do not.

You make them look a lot nicer than they do in my dad's yard!

Look at your kids making memories!! This totally reminds me of our spring break trip! I found a huge snail creeping around our condo and was so excited to show Sam. Do you remember collecting snails as a kid at Grandpa and Grandma's with the yogurt cups Grandma would save?! Cicada skins too. One time we actually brought a live cicada home with us in our yogurt cup full of skins. Love your pictures!

Ha ha..this reminds me of growing up there in CA! Snails everywhere! My parents would pay my brothers 5 cents per snail they picked up from the yard. Once they got a bagful, they would dump salt in the bag to kill them, then they'd toss them in the garbage. So if you really want to get rid of them, put Owen and Drew to work!!

We were looking everywhere for snails a couple of weeks ago when Gavin's class was collecting them!
