Treasure Hunt

Drayden got out his Metal detector today. He is a professional treasure hunter. Along with his daddy. *snicker* They are both DETERMINED to find something amazing.


Since Drayden has a gimpy hand (due to those stitches last week) He hired Chantel to be his designated "digger". She was so excited to play with Drayden, I don't think they even discussed payment.


Thats right, thats the spot... dig.... come on.... why aren't you digging?? (I had to explain to Drayden that the dirt here is VERY hard to dig in. and even with the rain yesterday it is pretty solid.)


We found several screws, nails, a few unidentified rusty things (I am sure daddy will know exactly what they are, but I have NO clue.) a washer, part of a spoon, a 6 foot piece of rebar (seriously Chantel was trying to pull it out of the ground and it just kept on coming!... lol) and THIS................


A pretty little silver ring, just Chantel's size. I guess she got her payment after all. =) Now Drayden gets to rub it in his daddy's face, he actually found something worth keeping! =) and right in our own front yard. Sometimes, in treasure hunting, and in life you have to find and discard alot of CRAP, but if you are patient and never give up, You will find your reward. =)
