“Logan was four or five when he started fossil hunting with me. He liked it because he got to throw rocks, and what kid doesn’t like that? When he found his first one...it was a rare one and so he started coming out more with me. My older boys like to come out too when they can. We all get rocks and we sit in one spot with a hammer and a chisel and we smash them open to see if anything is inside. Sometimes there is, sometimes there isn’t. We just like to go out and make a day of it. That’s the thing about fossils. All it costs you is the gas it takes you to get there to have a good time. Yesterday I took my boy to a movie and after spending 30 bucks on tickets we didn’t have half as much of a good time.”
