Sometimes family fun comes from an unexpected text from a friend (and thank goodness it did, because I wasn’t sure what we were going to do).
BFF Molly texted that she and her kids were going to Lake Hodges to go “Geocaching”. Well, the kids (and mommy) needed some entertainment, so we joined them.
For those of you not familiar with Geocaching, you can check it out at www.geocaching.com. From what I understand, it’s where you go online to see where there are hidden capsules (for lack of a better word). These contain a piece of paper for you to record that you found the cache, as well as several “leave behind” prizes that you can take from the cache (and you then turn leave behind your own toy).
Here’s what I learned about wandering in the weeds with my kids and BFF Molly and her kids:
1) Always make sure that your path is close to the important potties (what BFF Molly’s son calls porta potties) –with 5 kids in tow you will make at least one or two stops there every 30 minutes.
