Back in the day, in the prehistoric past we didn’t have water parks or splash parks to frolic in we had garden hoses to spray each other with or took a dip in the local swimming holes. Of course my neighbor had a pool but my friends and I always ended up wading in the local creek. The creek held many fascinations. There were bugs like water striders. On most days you could find minnows or tad poles swimming around in the small ponds during low tide. In the small streams leading which fed the creek you could find crayfish like critters living under the rocks. I miss those summer days. While splash parks and pools serve their purpose it is too bad many children today will never experience the joy of going out and discovering the wonders of God’s creation.
