Diamond Failure!

but I got rocks and you KNOW I am happy with any rocks!!!!  We've had hours of digging, we've eaten out way too often, and I argued with the rock identifier of the park.  It has been GREAT.
"Signs, signs
every where signs..
do this, don't do that...
Can't you read the signs?"
Okay, a first...SHOES and SOCKS!
These are the rocks
I could not 
take with me.

We found a wonderful variety of rocks including jasper, mica, crystals, lamproite, banded agate, quartz, calcite, barite and hematite and one special sample Toni named the Arkansas Guinea stone. 
We may not be the front page news of the next record diamond finders but we had fun.  After all, that is what's important.

Find The Hidden Object...

I always loved those puzzles in Highlights Magazine and other places. Sometimes I would go cross eyed trying to see a picture.  Here's the farm version of Find the Hidden Object.  Actually bad photos that I wish were good ones.  Some are from the afternoon sun, others are hidden by reeds.  You may have to guess what it's SUPPOSED to be instead of finding the Dog...there's your hint.

Now wasn't that fun?
The dogs thought so.
