Sunday with the kids

Today after church Connor came home with me. We made a pot of taco soup and a big pan of enchiladas for dinner. We got it all put together so it would be ready for dinner later. Then the rest of the crew came out. We down loaded some geo cache's on the computer for our area. If you haven't done this before, you should try it.
It is really fun. You need a hand held gps and a few little treasures. On your computer you type in "geo cache" and your zip code and it will give you cordinances for your treasure hunt. Then you use the directions, de-code the clues and find the hidden container.
They are hidden all over the world. We decided to split into two groups. Each group took 6 different caches to find. We had our two way radio's and off we went. When you find the hiding place there is a box or rubber tub filled with treasures.
You can take a treasure but you have to leave one too. You sign the notebook with your code name and date it.
You can see when the last person found the cache. It really is a lot of fun.
Even the little ones like it.

Taylor didn't go with us. He went to Sandlake with his friends. They took the jeeps there to ride in the sand.
He has so much fun hanging with his buddies. But at the end of the day we were all back home eating enchilada's and taco soup. What a nice day. I love hanging out with my family. Now we will have to figure out some adventure for next weekend.
