So that's exactly what we did tonight after dinner. I kind of had to force my boys out of the house where our tvs, computers and iPhones reside, but after we found the treasure we were seeking, everyone was in agreement about how much fun it was and we're looking forward to our next treasure-hunting adventure.
Here's how it went ...
|At the start of our hunt...scoping out the terrain. It was determined that sandals will NOT be the footwear of choice for future missions.|
|It's supposed to be under a rock...One, Two, Three..LIFT!|
|Oooh! We found it!!|
I've gotta say...I think I'm addicted! Uh-oh, there's that addictive personality coming out again! Blame it on that Grumpy Grateful Mom. It wasn't even difficult explaining it to the boys that they weren't to take anything home but leave for someone else to find. And it was so cute watching them be all sneaky while we put it back. We really were The Stealth Squad.
So I too am giving an unpaid endorsement to the sport (is it a sport?) of geocaching. It's a great family activity, especially in the summer! Who knows, we might even hide our own stash of something ... WAIT JUST A MINUTE! I'm thinking this might be a good way of getting rid of all those annoying toys around the house...hmmmm.
