Looking for Treasure

When you were young, did you collect treasures? Search for shells on the beach or colored stones? I learned this week that Tyler is one expert treasure hunter.

We hung out on the lake shore, and he found 3 rubber bands and a yellow badge.

You can tell that treasure hunting takes concentration.

Here he is with his favorite find–a bone. No one could figure out what kind of bone it is, but we all agreed that it is unusual to find bones on the beach.

The little things we come across unexpectedly can bring delight. We break out in a grin. Life is good.

How about you? What little treasures have you found lately? What’s made you smile?

Linking up with Little Things Thursday and Friday Finds.

A good beach comb is a perfect summer activity! You just never know what you will stumble upon.

Looking for things on the beach is fun. He does look pretty intent on finding treasures. I like the smoothness of that bone he found.

Great photos of your grandson – so natural and relaxed. We love to treasure hunt at the beach and have jars full of sea glass, though I’ve never found a bone! Looks like you are having the time of your life – enjoy!

That is a fairly large bone to find on the beach. When my daughter was younger she use to go with my dad to the beach with his metal detector and they would look for treasures.

What’s made me smile? Tyler. He’s a cutie! I’m not blessed with a beach to treasure hunt on every day, but I enjoyed searching for lichen after the rains we had last weekend. Have a blessed day!
