Today’s walk down memory will be about a rock. This rock was found one lovely afternoon while taking a walk along the shore of lake Erie. My parents would take us children for a drive to the lake and then we would walk along the shore. I use to love those walks and still love to walk along the beach! On thisparticular walk, we found this huge rock full of neat fossils. We thought it was so neat, that we decided we wanted to take it home. So my dad picked up this "stone" and carried it all the long way back to the car. Looking back, I’m surprised and amazed my dad did this. This was a not a light stone, it was a large heavy rock! I remember his feet sank deep into the sand and I’m sure he was very happy and relieved when the parking lot came into view.
So this stone blessed our flower garden up by our house and then moved with us to the farm when I was 17. A few years ago, my parent brought it over here to our home and said I could have it and enjoy it, so it has been sitting in our little flower bed by the driveway. This rock will move again with us when we move to the new house.
It is hard to see the fossils prints here, but when the rock is wet they really show up.

These two pictures were taken in the spring of 2006 and yes, our oldest is sitting on the rock.
