silver mines and a treasure hunt

Next up on the lets not let mom get depressed during a holiday weekend trip, Silver Mines. Our neighbor had taken her kids there and recommended it. There is a short hike, some mines and caves to explore... and then of course the hidden treasure. Uncharted Lancaster hid some gems under a bridge and after the kids discovered them they each got to take one  home! This made it the best day ever. Officially. Until mom or dad committed some minor infraction in which case the day quickly became the worst day ever. But either way I thought it was fun and special. We will definitely be checking out more adventures from them!

After we got the gems and sanitized them of course we went to a nearby park where Matt grilled up some burgers and hot dogs. Just living the dream, these Olsen kids!
