Treasure Hunters

We took advantage of the unseasonably unbelievably absurdly warm weather and went with some friends on our first geocaching hike. Geocaching is something I've been meaning to do with the kids for awhile now. We finally got around to it and the experience did not disappoint. It was a true adventure for the kids with a real payoff. They loved it -- you would have thought they had just struck upon some long lost loot left behind by John Dillinger himself.

ge-o-cach-ing - noun - the recreational activity of hunting for and finding a hidden object by means of GPS coordinates posted on a Web site. (New Oxford American Dictionary)

To start your own geocaching hunts visit geocaching.com and/or download the iPhone app.

You can't go treasure hunting without a good stick.

Only a few billion leaves to search under.

Amelia had no qualms about digging into this rotting tree.

It was right here this whole time?!?!

The loot!

North America's fiercest treasure hunting crew.

And now to ponder what to do with my share of the treasure.

Here ducky, ducky, ducky.

Dad would never let me sit this close to the pond if he didn't have his camera with him.

So what did you leave for the next crew of treasure monkeys?

It's a LEGO themed cache, so we left some mini-figs.
