Evidently there is some secret character that comes and drops coins in the landscape when Addi and Max come to visit. Even more curious is that it seems they all are found in the general vicinity of Pappy’s grilling area….hmmm!
When the kids first get to our house, there is flurry of activity with very important decisions regarding snacks, drinks, and what toys they want to play with. Meanwhile, Pappy will scurry off outside to start the firepit and grill for the evening.
Once all decisions have been made, we all head outside, with little hands full of all the goodies they have collected inside. However, even better treasures await them outside. Pappy announces, “Addi, Max~get over here quick! It looks like secret treasures have been left yet again.
They run over by Pappy, already forgetting those items that were oh so important just a few minutes ago…and the search begins! Quickly, Addi eyes some silver and copper coins (she is the master egg hunter just like her mother!).
However, they know there are still more goods to uncover in the rocky path, so they continue on~each trying to find the most coins to add to their piggy banks (or pockets if we are discussing Max).
This continues on until the every inch of the area has been combed. They make sure to put their new finds in their own secret areas to save away for a rainy day. Leave it to Pappy, he has always been the one to help us all understand the importance of saving….all while making it fun!
