Geocaching, Attempt #1
With the lack of snow and beautiful sunshine, we decided today was the perfect day for a hike and/or geocaching. We'd never done the geocaching before but we thought it would be a fun addition. Upon entering the state park we realized that it might be more treacherous than we initially thought. Deciding to power through it, Dan went up the icy hill first. With babies on our back it proved to be too challenging and after Dan took a fall with Katie on his back, we turned around and skidded (sat on our haunches and slid) down the hill back to the starting spot. Failure! After a quick picnic lunch the boys decided to go exploring. Best idea of the day! They ran and played. We found some non-icy trails, Katie ran and played. Molly enjoyed more time in the backpacks. We found rocks, deer poop, deer tracks, and Thomas even found some "fossils." Here are a few pictures of our adventure!
