Treasure Hunters

Hello lovelies! How are you all? It's Thursday and almost the weekend so I cannot complain! I always look forward to the weekends.

Speaking of weekends... last weekend we met up with our friend Deaner for a day of hiking. Sarah, his wife, was in the states for her baby shower, so we thought we'd keep him company and occupied with a full day of outdoorsing! (Is that a word?)

Deaner mapped out a nice spot for us to hike, but not only that, he had his brand new metal detector out and ready for some treasure hunting. He'd been wanting to use this for a while, since Sarah had bought it for him for Christmas, and what better time to use than out in the middle of a hiking trail.

If there's anything to do with hiking or especially treasure hunting my husband is totally GUNG-HO! So we headed out for our treasure hunting adventure.

And the adventure begins...
Trail marker

The first big find... a very, very old rusted sign!

and some other unidentifiable objects...

The boys digging in anticipation for what they
hoped were Roman coins or a suit of armor.

Only to find a rusty old flattened bucket.
Dare to dream boys!! Dare to dream...

Even though we didn't find some super exciting treasure and become millionaires overnight, it was still a super fun time! I never thought metal detecting would be exciting... but it totally was. And adding in a little hiking is always fun in my book.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

That's too fun. The first thing I thought was, "Wow, it's old-school geocaching." How lame am I? :)
