Husband was putting some roofing shingles on, peeling off the paper backing and setting it aside. A swift breeze came by, picking up one of the discarded papers and sending it down to the table where the Littles were sitting –  a brown paper, all rolled up.

“A Treasure Map!” They declared. And so ensued a treasure hunt in our yard. They obtained other maps, added necessary details, consulted their maps, and played and hunted and ran around – bad guys looking for the treasure apparently lurking around many corners.

A joyous afternoon of outdoor fun, all fueled by a discarded piece of paper. A day to remember.
