Treasure Hunting

Today we spent most of the day treasure hunting. Dave received a GPS for Christmas, so we tried our hand at geocaching. We did quite well as a team finding 10 out of 11 treasures. The kiddos loved searching for the treasures and taking turns selecting a trinket out of the box to take to the next one. Eamon brought his metal detector to the first one and used it to find the treasure. Some of the hunts were downright tough - caches found in landscaping lights, "electrical" boxes and under rocks. If you haven't tried it, you definitely should as we all had a blast.

Our ten "finds"
