Gator Hunting

On Saturday we set off on a family adventure to hunt some gators.
And by hunt, I mean try and see how many we could find.

We drove to a state park near our home to observe the gators.

These alligators were in their natural habitat, often just a step or two off of the hiking path we were traveling.

We saw around twenty good size gators on our little one mile hike.

There weren't any fences between us and the gators, just two or three feet of grass.

It was terrifying and fascinating all at the same time.

I think we're going to follow up our Saturday outing with this video for Family Home Evening tonight. I think the kiddos might understand it just a little bit better after our adventure!


  1. You are braver than I am! Scary!!!

  2. Great way to bring that lesson home - I love that video!

  3. Oh my, what a scary/thrilling outing. I would be a little wary, but thrilled to be there. :)
