We Did It!

What a blast we had last night! Thank you Shalee for your wonderful idea.

We went geocaching! So, we dropped the kids off at Da In-laws at 6pm. Did a quick dinner at QDoba's, then had to run home for a missing memory card which was not in the camera, then to Walgreen's for batteries for a GPS, and then (more than hour after we dropped off the kids) we were off! *wink* (Can ya' tell both of us have ADD? LOL)

So, here we are kid-less at Walgreen's:

With 2 GPS's, how could we get lost? LOL

We found the park. We've lived in this area for YEARS and never knew this park was here! LOL

According to the directions and hints, we walked about 1/4 mile back and went off on a small side trail. Looking for a tree with a root ball in the path. The cache box is supposed to be 3 steps off the path near that fallen tree. Do you see it in the next picture?

Success! And, yes, in case you are wondering, we hung the digital camera from a tree branch to get our picture! LOL

We found one more after this just a mile or so away in a different park but it was too dark by then to get very good pictures. And, we're completely addicted! We woke up today wanting to take the kids to another one about 5 miles from here but other plans (and cooler heads and cooler weather) prevailed. *wink* We'll definitely be doing this again!

Quote of the night from Da Hubby..."so THIS is what geeks do on a date!" LOL
