Looking for gold - Summer 2012

This summer looking for gold was all the rage at our house. O Boy spent many happy hours out on the porch with a hammer and a few friends, smashing away at rocks in the hopes of finding gold.  Good thing we had some Little Tikes plastic goggles to keep them safe!
O Boy took this picture himself, apparently showing gold or silver in this rock.

KM shows off what he's discovered.

The Little Smasher

O Boy took these photos of pages in a DK book so that he could take them outside and compare them to what they were seeing in the rocks they were smashing around our house.  Good planning!

There were so many chips flying everywhere we had to set up some cardboard box guards so that other smashers wouldn't get hurt.

Could be gold!
