Geocaching with Edelweiss and LG

Friday, October 9, 2009

 

Today the Caterpillars and I drove out to see Edelweiss and LG. We decided to do a bit of geocaching in their neck of the woods. Edelweiss had checked to make sure that they were still there (we had a massive flood down here and many geocaches in the area were swept away). It was a muddy trip, but besides the couple of swarms of mosquitoes, we all enjoyed ourselves!
LG and CW show off the treasures they have already found.

B10 is always fun to have when we are geocaching, because he's got no fear of sticking his hand down holes in the ground or up in trees. He pulled this lock-in-lock box out for us. It was one of the ones that survived the "Great Flood of 2009".


B10 really helped out carrying GO part of the time I was working with the GPS. You can tell she loves and trusts her big brothers!

After geocaching (we found FOUR!), we headed to the local park to play for an hour or so. The boys were off and running to the playground, while GO, Edelweiss and I hung out on a park bench.
I love seeing CW with LG. When he's with LG or Little Sheep, he really gets to be a "big brother" to another boy. It's kind of cool to see him do for others what B10 does for him.
The park was awesome! So much to climb on - plus I got a really good lesson in how to use my telephoto lens on my new camera.

After the park, we headed back to Edelweiss' house for a hot dog lunch. It was awesome to spend time with friends we haven't seen in a while. I hope to do it again soon!

It looks like you guys had a blast geocaching! I love how sweet CW is with younger kids too. Little Sheep loves to play with both of the "big" boys :)

I hadn't seen these pictures before - they're great! We need to do this again soon (maybe when it warms up a bit).
