Last year when MM was here, he was really into pirates. He wanted to build a treasure chest and bury it. His grandpa quickly informed him that any box built would rot in the ground, so they put some change in a root beer can and taped another can to it and buried it in the backyard. Each of them paced off and drew a map to the location of the buried treasure, and I rolled them up and stored them.
Well MM arrived on Saturday, and of course on Sunday, he wanted to dig up the treasure. I knew exactly where the maps were. They however did not have quite as much success in following their maps to locate the treasure.
DH dug quite a large hole trying to find said cans. He finally located one(he didn't remember the two taped together), and it didn't have any money in it. I had to explain to him that they had taped two together, and he went back to digging and enlarging his hole.
Finally success, the treasure was found. Oh and did I mention that the treasure was 3 pennies? I told DH, he wouldn't be burying any money in our backyard, because it would be gone just like it is in the stock market.
While they've been busy playing, I've spent the past week working on my stash of OWH Any Hero cards. I'll be doing my card signing drive on June 15 with the assistance of MM dressed as Uncle Sam.
Off to the camphouse, to work on the TV down there and see if I can get the wifi part to work.
You've still got time to get your two entries in, so don't miss out.
