More treasure!

Today Zoe and I set out on our hike to earn our Hiking Badge.
We weren't sure where to go at first, but then we figured out which way the map was showing us to go. Up!
Zoe found this map underneath the treasure in the chest.

We were in a beautiful fern meadow.
The map directed us up a steep path.
We looked up when we heard someone shouting to us.
There was a girl up at the very top!
She was waving her hands and jumping up and down.
We finally reached her.
She was very excited. She told us she'd slept all night in the Caves.
Maman knew all about it!
She said her name was Helena and she had traveled from Texas to be our new sister!
We couldn't believe it and were so surprised.
She is the new treasure!

We both hugged her and said we'd be happy if she came to live with us and share our adventures.
We headed back on our pirate boats and set up Camp.
I'm holding the firewood while Zoe saws it into smaller pieces.
Helena was so exhausted she fell asleep in the tent.
After we built the campfire, Helena came out in her sleeping bag and joined us for a sing a long. I played the guitar. We sang rousing campfire songs before going to bed.
It sure was a wonderful day!
Yvette Marie signing off and turning in.
Good night!
