We are trying to get into Geocaching. It's been a steep learning curve for me, but we are working on it. This was our first geocache. We found the cache at the river bottom across the street from our house.
We just finished reading The Hobbit so the kids made the connection that geocaching made them feel like the dwarves on an adventure to find Smaug and the treasure.
Charlie signed the log book for us.
Slip and sliding with our pals the Michels.
We went on a family camping trip to the Crandell Mountain Tipis.
We've never slept in a tipi before so it was cool to experience that.
This next series of pictures makes me so happy. We played the dice
game for lots and lots of candy (which is so exciting for these candy deprived kids) and for some reason Scarlet cleaned house. She won everything with her sweet candy game skillz.
This is her showing off:
In the morning we hiked Galloway. It was a great hike. We've trained the older three kids to be hikers but little Scarlet wasn't so sure. That is until we made her the leader... after that she marched all the way to the top no problem. She loves to be in control ;)
