Our Wisconsin adventures consisted of more than just fishing contests.
It also involved treasure hunting.
Seriously, what kid doesn't dream of going on a treasure hunt?
I know 3, in particular, that couldn't wait to go on a treasure hunt.
*Don't worry, I don't have 2 more kids that I've been keeping secret from you...the boys are my nephews.
The kids just happened to stumble upon a treasure map and their adventure began with shouts of, I've always wanted to find a treasure OR I bet we'll find real rubies streaming from the mouths of these 3 eager children.
After studying the treasure map and following the clues...
they discovered a buried treasure.
The treasure included a few toy ponies, some arrowheads, both foreign and gold coins and a faux diamond necklace. Those little hands, at the bottom of the picture, couldn't wait to divide their booty.
Sadly, though, there were no rubies. Grace kept insisting there must be more treasures to be found.
Looks like I'll need to plan another treasure hunt in the near future, one that is overflowing with rubies.
