So a couple of weekends ago we headed up to Idaho Springs in the mountains to go Geocaching.
If you haven't tried this, it's lots of fun and free!
On the way up we drove by this famous house--looks like a flying saucer!
Geo Cache is an out-door treasure hunting game. There are Caches hidden all over the world, so everone can participate.
The drive up
Preparing to go up and find our treasure.
We used the GPS on our phone and attempted to find the cache
we walked up and down this hill and couldn't find it,
so we decided to eat our picnic, regroup and try again......
and FINALLY ......
SUCCESS! It took us about 2.5 hours to find the cache, but we all agreed it was a great time!
We had such a feeling of accomplishment once we finally found it, we signed the log, and got a Hello Kitty sticker out of the cache and left a pink $100 dollar bill!
Little Pumpkin was worn out as we drove home!
Great family day!
