Too nice to be inside!

As my mother always said on days like today, "It's too nice to be inside!" and she was right! It was SO fantastic outside today was would almost have been a sin to be inside! WOW we don't get many of these (read nice and bug free) and I could not find a single reason to be inside today so I took the kids geocaching. It is something we started doing years ago, but for a variety stopped, main reason being life happened! Now we have decided it's time to do this again and this was out very first find of this year, in a giant sandbox! How fun is that?! Well, I won't go into all the details of what geocaching is, but if you're interested in essentially a high-tech treasure hunting check out the link I provided. Basically it'll take you to places of interest that you might have never gone to before having not really had a reason. For instance, today's hunt was just a short walk off a road that I've traveled on hundreds of times but never stopped to see this 'desert.' It's only about 3 miles from my house!

Try it you'll love it!


  1. i can't believe you wrote that your mother was "RIGHT" on ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I remember you doing this a few years back and loving it. I think I'll suggest it to Aaron and maybe he/we can take the kids sometime or he can and Curtis can take all the kids some day. What a great idea!


So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
