As some of you already know, Bryan and I are geocachers. Shanna-Lynn did such a good job of explaining what geocaching is HERE. The only think I would add is that anyone interested in learning more should check out the official geocaching website. I have not gone nearly as much in the past two years for obvious reasons, but it is an activity Bryan and enjoyed pre-parenthood and one that I have anxiously awaited Jonathan being old enough to enjoy as well.
We had a nice (at least for November) day today and decided to head out to E.P. Tom Sawyer park with Jonathan to introduce him to the activity. It was the perfect place to start as there were several easy caches hidden in the park a few weeks ago for a sort of introduction to geocaching event that was held there. The terrain was pretty easy, too, and Jonathan was fascinated with the leaves everywhere.
Here we are headed out:
Jonathan immediately took to a stick:
Daddy and Jonathan find their first cache. It was a nice moment:
Daddy was nice enough to let Jonathan carry his super-expensive GPS as we walked. He kept checking back every so often to be sure that Jonathan hadn't decided to pitch it into a pile of leaves:
I just love watching the two of them together:
All that walking makes short legs very tired:
I think I may use this one on Christmas cards:
Our first experience as a threesome was great so I know we will be full-on come spring time!
Leaf it alone...
