Gem and Mineral Show at Palmer

We've been waiting patiently all week to go to the Gem and Mineral Show and the day finally arrived. There are several of us who collect rocks and this was a fantastic opportunity to add to our collections. 

When we arrived, there were lots of people already enjoying the beautiful stones. We wandered the isles exploring ancient fossils and magnificent rocks. When we had questions, volunteers and vendors happily informed us with valuable information.There was a Wheel of Fortune, a rock dig, and necklace making center. No one left empty handed, that's for sure. Everyone got a bag full of cool rocks and we got a chance to share them after the show. 

For lunch, we had a nice picnic at Butler Park under the large Live Oak tree. We ate yummy tacos and fruit, then enjoyed the beautiful day playing and running in the park. At the end of our day we all pitched in making a fairy hut.
