Mowing the grass brings out snakes in our yard - outdoor fun for the whole family!

Wednesday turned out to be Snake Day at our house... a day when fun and games of the virtual variety were trumped by our front yard wildlife. You see, my husband decided to mow the grass, and lately when he mows, the vibrations send the young garter snakes skittering about. As soon as my children heard that my husband had caught a snake, the video games were abandoned and everyone was outside.

It was a morning like any other... getting dressed to start my day... when my husband ran in with an urgent look on his face and asked quickly, “Do you wanna see a copperhead? Hurry!”

I threw on my robe and followed him out to the backyard. There by the fence lay the beautiful, little, poisonous snake, curled up in the leaves next to the big toad he had recently killed for breakfast.
