Over the weekend we took a short day trip up to Devil's Lake and went geo-caching for the first time. The kids had an absolute blast. I think part of what made the trip a success was the preparation.
I printed a map for each of the kids of the lake and surrounding trails. We also purchased compasses for all three of them.
I printed out several different caches for us to look for, and downloaded Trimble's Geo-Caching Navigator App to my phone.
It was a complete sucess and we'll definitely be going again. To find out more about geo-caching, you can visit this website.
I just had to share this... We saw these clumps of mushrooms all over- Maya decided they look like biscuits. Yum!
In the realm of daily life, I may have gone off the deep end a little. I actually volunteered to be a leader for my son's cub scout den. I've completed some of the training already, but I just know I'm going to be very, very busy here.
