Pooh Sticks

We found the BEST bridge EVER!!! this morning for playing a little family game we call....
Pooh Sticks

I had a moment of brilliance (which is, I know, a rare thing) when I decided that we would go to the park this morning first thing after breakfast. It has been unbearably hot, and by going early we beet the heat, and there was no one there.

Anyways, for those of you who don't know the game, pooh-sticks is played on a bridge that crosses a fast running stream or river. The players drop their sticks from one side of the bridge, then run over to the other side to see who's stick comes out first.

The Snake was too busy throwing sticks in to be bothered with the rules.

The Brain was very competitive. It took him a couple throws to realize that Fingers kept winning because he was throwing right into the fast part of the current. Once The Brain found the fast spot, he was the big winner.

After we ran out of sticks the boys amused themselves by throwing rocks at the ducks. I know this sounds cruel but hey,
they ARE boys...
and besides,
their aim stinks.
No ducks were harmed in the taking of this picture.
