Geocaching with Margot and Richie
By Charisa Darling on July 28, 2014
It's been years since I've seen The Royal Tenenbaum's but these two reminded me of Margot and Richie yesterday while we were out on our first ever Geocaching hunt.
Geocaching is a fancy word for modern day treasure hunting. A downloaded app uses your phone's compass to find a preset point. Vance wanted to try it out, so we did, and we were able to find 2 out of 3 boxes.
(Since poison ivy and random biting bugs are drawn to me I do not stray from the paved path. I'm all about nature on paper, not in real life.)
Once you find the treasure box you write your name and the date, and news to me, you can swap little trinkets. (The boxes we chose to find were geared towards kids. Not sure if the more serious boxes follow the same practice.) One of my talents as a Mom is to be able to produce random items from my purse at all times. I don't remember putting plastic jumpy frogs in my purse but behold! there they were. The kids were able to trade and props to Vance for letting Vaughn choose the pink monkey doll with freakishly big eyes.
Afterwards we celebrated by having some fun at the pool.
Some of us had more fun than others.
Hope you had a fun weekend!
