I would have to go through tons of pictures on the off chance it would be in one but I found this one online.

It's very similar but ours was more shallow. I can only assume the one in the picture below would be annoying trying to take out the stones or beads, too deep and narrow. Seems like you would have to dig.
Like the one in the picture, ours was also textured, not smooth. I think the rough grain adds to the character of it.

That's really great! I was thinking of integrating one into a coffee table.

Wow, that is a lot of selections.
There are even ones with hinges... cool.

I found one that looks just like ours though, thanks for the link:

I did that once. Took forever to play the game, but it was fun. People kept coming by the camp ground just to see what we were doing.

Well part of camping with the kids, is meeting and getting along with the people you meet there, sounds good.

It was fun. I always like the people I meet on vacation. The stress is gone and they seem to be enjoying themselves, which is starkly different then when I run into them in traffic!

When the kids were young I could predict the weather, just had to go camping and it would rain everytime.
