Hello! I have had a weekend adventure that is different than the kind I normally have. For my son's birthday we took a trip to Murfreesboro, Arkansas. What is there, you might ask?
A whole park that is full of diamonds. All you have to do is find them. This is what they look like when you find them. Did we see any? No, we didn't see any pretty rocks like these.
This is what the field looks like. Can you imagine finding a diamond in all that dirt?! It had been rainy the week before we went so this field was muddy. Good for finding diamonds we were told. We searched and dug and searched some more. We are treasure hunters by nature, as you well know. It was fun and the thrill of the hunt kept us going. We look forward to going back and trying again some day.
We were sore and tired and decided that hunting for diamonds is not for wienies, but we had a nice bed at our hotel and a wonderful little local resturant named Buddies that had the best chicken fried steak we ever ate. The trip was a blast, but it is always good to be home again.
I look forward to catching up with all my dear friends and I'll be back to share more with you next Tuesday!
