While I was gone over the weekend, Ryan did a great job keeping the kiddos entertained. One thing he did to accomplish this was to take the kids geocaching. According to geocaching.com the definition of geocaching is:
"...a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location."
Have you ever done this before? We have done it quite often. Pretty much any time we go somewhere to visit, we look for geocaches in the area. I know I've written about it before here and here. We also generally geocache now whenever we go camping. It is such a fun and free activity (if you have the app) to do with the family. Check out these cute pics he sent to me:
Lilli told me that's a map she is holding :)
Love it! Those plastic ice cream cones were two of the geocaches they found. The cones were hanging from a tree :) All in all, they found four geocaches.
Ryan and Caden even created a new geocache by our house. It was approved last night (it needs to be approved to be official and listed), and so far today five people have already found it. Ryan told me that the hardcore geocachers like to be the first to find the new ones. Caden now thinks it's fun to see how many people have found it :)
Do you have any great place by your house where a geocache could be hidden? This is such a fun activity we are able to do as a family. The kids especially like looking when we visit Oma and Papa in Florida. If you have never tried it, I suggest you give it a go...or search.
