Geocaching!

More adventures in geocaching!

We recently met up at the park with two friends from Connor's Kindergarten class, and introduced them to geocaching as well (I love sucking people into my hobbies!)

One of my friends has been trying to get into geocaching, but hasn't had much luck on her own. While our daughters were at dance last week, three of us moms (plus Jared and Connor) ran an errand, and decided to check for any nearby caches. Pretty die-hard to be out in the RAIN looking! LOL

On the way home from dance, we stopped to check this cache out, and I realized after the fact that it was Em's very first time geocaching! Glad I'd taken a picture (even though kids were being GOOFY!)

I'd been told this would be a fun cache to find by three different families, so we finally made a point to drive out and find it after running some errands. Connor and Dan wanted to be dropped off at home first, so only Emily and Jared and I were out hunting. Definitely shouldn't have been in shorts and flip-flops for this one, but we survived with minimal scratches!

We have yet to find anything exciting/interesting inside a cache yet, but it's fun searching them out anyway! I'd love to find a "travel bug" at some point. We'll keep searching!

That does look like fun... might just have to check it out!

Mike has talked about geocaching, it's totally his thing, but we haven't gone out yet. We have a trail by our house that has caches to be found on it, so I don't know what he's waiting for.
