The Infamous Time Capsule

Let me tell you a little story.  This is a story about 5 best friends named Lisa, Clar, McCall, Kassi, and Tasha. *click on the pictures to enlarge

One day when these girls were 18 they decided it would be pretty cool to make a time capsule.  They each made up a little package filled with written memories, pictures, secrets, letters, and odds and ends.  The girls decided they would put the packages in a big box and bury it on Clar's dad's property in New Harmony (just south of Cedar City), and that they would open the box when all 5 of the girls were married.  It took several hours to dig a hole big enough for the box, and the girls celebrated with dinner after.
     The girls talked about their time capsule often and how funny it would be when the time came to open it.  One by one they got married.  First Clar in Feb 2007, Lisa in March of 07 and Kass in October of 07.  3  years later, Tasha and McCall were both married in Jan of 2010.  By this time Lisa had moved to Texas and had a baby, so the girls waited until she was in town that summer to dig up their treasure. 
 They had so much fun on the drive to New Harmony, catching up and laughing about their box

They found the spot pretty easily and climbed over the fence to the big bump in the ground

and by the time they started digging, were super excited to see what they would find.
   They dug.....and dug..... and dug.....

This wasn't easy because all of the girls wore flip flops :) silly girls

Tasha got a sticker

They weren't finding much in their digging and started to get worried, but came upon the tupperware lid to the container Clar used!

With renewed enthusiasm they dug all the way to the bottom of the box

There was nothing else there.  Someone had discovered our time capsule and taken everything out.

Clar called her Dad who told her that the property had been sold the year before. Lisa expressed our disappointment perfectly in this photo :)

The girls were so so sad and angry

but had enjoyed their time together and vowed to make another time capsule that they would open ten years down the road
