We took a cool tour and learned a lot about caves. The cave entrance is a huge hole in the ground. It was actually discover by two boys that were just walking in a field in the 1800s. They saw a hole and investigated it. Wouldn't that be amazing?To enter, you walk down stairs and ramps.
After the tour, we got to go panning for gems. The gift shop has packs of dirt with gems mixed in. We then got to go out and strain the dirt and see what you find.
Emily found some really pretty stones in her bag of dirt.
There is a small ice cream shop called Nelsons in Stillwater. (We passed it on our way home) Their cones are huge. These are seriously child size cones. Andrew ate most of this..because of a melting factor, we had to take some off the top for him. After eating all this ice cream we went home and went into an ice-cream coma.
