The Littlest 'Gold Rush' Fans And Some Big Imaginations!

A year or so ago, my kids and I became addicted to Discovery Channel's Gold Rush. Each Friday night we watch the latest episode. My son loves it! This weekend he asked if we could play Gold Rush, and thanks to some awesome imagination and ingenuity, here is what we came up with. For those of you that enjoy the show as much as we do, you'll appreciate this post!

Our Tonka truck ladder made a good sluice box with the air filter!

Little sister had to have her own mine, too, so she decided to be "Parter" aka "Parker" at Big Nugget

I sure hope Dakota Fred sees all the work you put into your gold mine. That is awesome.

Hello Carson, Yes I'm looking at your site. Quite an operation you have there. I can tell you will be quite a success in life. I'm glad you could share in our adventure this year and we had a lot of fun doing the show. I'm looking forward to next season... Freddie

My son will be so excited to know that you saw his mine! Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Now I just have to convince him we can take the mine down...it is still covering every inch of his bedroom floor! HA!
