Emily had her first fossil dig!
Me and Tony used to be members of the Dallas Paleontological Society and take Christopher on digs quite often. After Emily was born, we stopped going, and intended to start again sooner. Lately, Emily has been looking through all of our fossils and showing a great deal of interest. We decided it would be a good time to take her on her first dig, so that is what she did today.
The dig went great, and she found her first fossil within the first five minutes of being there!
It's an ammonite, and turned out to be a pretty good one. It's good to find them whole, which this one is.
We all found several nice ammonites and echinoids, and altogether had a great day. I added a link of more photos here: Emily's First Fossil Dig
