Geodes

Proper eye-wear is important when breaking open a geode. Be sure to use your best ski goggles.

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. I don't know what I was expecting, but something purple and glittery would probably have been closer than this brownish-orange.

Don't tell her that.

Our kids love to crack rocks open with a hammer and get excited about things even less pretty than Emma's! We had to put a few restrictions on their activities when we discovered that they were hammering chunks out of the driveway as well :)

How fun! Joseph loves geodes!
We have had a couple that have had purple sparkly crystals - but most of ours have been brown, too.

And the ski goggles are great - we have to settle for sunglasses.
