We got a chance to partake in one of our favorite family hobbies today, as it was beautiful late fall day in western MA today! And no, it's not raking leaves, which is what we did in the morning during his blessed 2 1/2 hour nap. In the afternoon we went ge0caching! Never heard of it? Check it out! It's so much fun. It forces you outside to explore your own community, and leads you to things you've never seen and loads of junk toys/treasures. Plus it's a fun challenge. And all you need is a handheld gps (relatively inexpensive -$100 or so) and a set of coordinates with clues. We went with Theo in the Erg0, with my parents in tow - two towns away to a place where a man is entombed in a HUGE boulder in the middle of the woods. It was the craziest cache ever. We were two for two today bringing our total to 26 finds.
Here is a picture of Theo finding his first cache back in the spring!
