Fossil Pearl

I had saturday off of work, and I was at home bored with my son.  So we headed off to find some fossils, and mud.  I carried him out into the field, and sat him on the edge of one of the ditches there, and we started scaning for anything cool.  The presence of footprints made me know that most everything would be gone, but maybe not all.  After we scanned the first ditch, we moved to the second, and when I stood my son up in the ditch, I put him right on this piece of matrix.  He took one step, and there it was, a Fossil Pearl stuck right in the matrix!  I quickly stuck it in my pocket, and gave him another rock to hold (he's just about 2yo, what do you think he would have done with it??? )    This got my heart pounding, and the hunt was on for more pearls.  We managed to find one pretty nice sharks tooth, and a small vert.  After someone fell in the mud, it was time to head home.  It was a fun outing, and was great to just get out of the house!!!

Cool find. Great way to spend a few hours with the kid too. You're not alone, my boys have ended up in mud and water so many times I cant count. Wonder where they got that? Content Quality : 10 of 10
