We went to the Gem and Rock Show this weekend. I was in a seriously foul mood which made The Littles teeter on eggshells so to speak and Tim really quiet. Outside of the fossils, we weren't interested in the booths and vendors but there were some fun activities for The Littles like gold panning and well, that's all we did really.
Oh, The Little Girls picked out a geode and a rock guy cut it open for them. I was hoping they would get the surprise of pretty colored crystals inside but
it was sort of a greyish let-down. But to make them feel like it wasn't lame he talked up the "cool, crystal lines" or something and they smiled and felt better. The geode is still in a plastic bag I my trunk.
