We arrived around 1:30 pm, purchased our tickets, and off to the cavern tour we went!
Our "tour guide" told us all we needed to know about the caverns.
You will see everyone has their iPods in hand. The kids are learning how to be great picture takers (thanks to mom) and they wanted to capture their OWN photos, on their iPods.
It was very interesting being INSIDE of a mountain.
The kids were so well behaved and were also really excited to be in the cavern.
We were told that this cavern was found back in 1920, when two boys and their dog were taking a walk. The dog fell in the ONLY small opening of the cavern (you can see it in the below photo). The dog didn't die because it just fell onto a small landing, just underneath the hole. The boys ran and told the farmer, who owned the property that the cavern was found on. The farmer spent years investigating the cavern and eventually the cavern become available/open for the public to tour. I am sure there are MORE details to the story, but that's ALL we were told.
Standing under the "wedding bell"!
Jax chose a "fools gold" necklace. Lilah and Ty chose a jar filled with genuine, Brazilian gold flakes.
