Fossil Finding

There is a park near Toledo where you can find and take home fossils.  We thought this might be something my nephews might enjoy, so we visited there with our visitors last week.

We did manage to find a few brachiopod fossils, which look a lot like shells.  The boys mostly had fun running around and climbing the dirt piles.

They were pretty dirty by the time we were done!
