I have always wanted to go to the Crater of Diamonds State Park. I finally got my wish as our family and the Butlers made the trek there this past weekend.
Why have I always wanted to go? I probably have been under the delusion that diamonds were just sitting there for my picking. I am not saying I did not have fun, but it is a lot of work. There were many people there too...chasing their dreams of finding the big one.
We did not find any diamonds that day, but we did have fun! The kids got to play in the mud, as you can see in the picture. They also got to play in the small water park they have there.
In short, I may take one more trip there, dig a little, and find the big one!
