Its that time of year again!

Yes, in our family its that time of year again.
What time you may wonder?
Its geocaching time!
What is geocaching? Here is a little info from
"Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment."
On Saturday we all piled in the truck and headed out. The weather was absolutely beautiful.
Our first stop was a wonderful little park in the middle of no where. Sometimes on our adventures we stumble on little beauties like this. The kids love running through the woods and jumping over streams.
We all enjoy the thrill of the hunt as we look for geocaches. Our first one was hiden just hard enough for the kids to find. The kids all took there turns looking through the "treasure" and then we were on our way. As we head to our next geocache we were lucky enough to be at the railroad crossing just as a train headed down the track. Almost a little too lucky! We ended up finding 3 geocaches that day, but, best of all we had an amazing day with each other. Which in the end is the best treasure!
