Redneck Water sports

Apparently I don't get it.  I don't get that you can not simply slip and slide.  Its not enough.  My kids will never look back.
You have to use ponds, huge hills........think bigger mom!

This is how they do it in this neck of the woods. 

My children will never simply run and slide across the lawn.  It would simply be too boring.

or simply float in a raft

Not when it can be dragged by the 4 wheeler.

I see I still have much to learn how they do it in L.A. (lower Alabama)

Of course , you will not catch me in there.  I might get in a lake.....but the pond???

Nope, One word.....Water Moccasins.  They kill  them all the time, and apparently hang out in all 5 ponds and the surrounding trees.  Why is this our entertainment spot???

Oh, how I cringed when the kids took off running.  My only thought was ...."everyone has been playing out here so they are scared off right now"  Right, Right?????  I have to make up comforting thoughts such as these living here.

Looks like your kids are having a blast!!! I am not sure I'd hang out with the snakes either!!!

I don't think I could keep my sanity. Craziness!

That looks like something my kids would like too. But you definitely wouldn't catch me in a pond or lake. Snakes are not my friends.

Oooo - I was all in with the kids until you mentioned the Water Moccasins - those things will kill you won't they? At least that's what my Grandma used to tell me - but maybe she was just trying to keep me from playing in the pond ;0)
