Geocaching Adventures

 After the first attempt at geocaching was an epic fail Mike had to soothe their broken hearts at not finding treasure with frozen yogurt.

 I had read about geocaching before and thought it sounded like fun but never got a chance to try it. Recently a friend posted a picture of her kids finding a cache on a hike. Keira and Israel are at the age where they love little treasures and I thought they would love to go on a "treasure hunt." A quick internet search revealed that their are literally hundreds of caches within a few miles of our house.  Some are even specifically for kids. Anyways Mike went out with the older 3 last night and attempted 4 caches and failed at all 4. The kids were so disappointed. We did some more research on finding them and Mike set our this am with Keira and Israel and they were much more successful.  The kids brought things to put in the caches because one of the rules of geocaching is that you may take something from the cache as long as you leave something of equal or greater value in the cache. So if you are looking for something free and fun to do with kids....
