Nolan had suggested we drive out to Grass Valley today. The thought was to get out of Beale....and it was fun. We had lunch at Big A's Drive In - his choice. Cynthia and I tried this together on our first retreat scouting trip. I enjoyed the memories as we ate.
The kids love the hamburgers - I LOVED the Asian Salad - coconut, peanuts....good stuff.
We shared an order of Pesto garlic fries
|They taste way better than they look|
|Made in house rootbeer....|
Next on our agenda was finding a couple of geocaches in Grass Valley. The first one was an easy find......It was a small cache - a film canister.
There's a lot of history here. We'd love to come back and explore on a warm day.
We finally all gave up and retreated to the warm van - EXCEPT MICHAEL. He found it! A micro-cache....see the small tube he's holding? We don't feel very bad about counting it as a family find when he was the only one who persevered. ::snort::
Cold and wet - but HAPPY to have been in some weather - we headed home and watched a few movies. Everyone settled in to read and I took advantage to send out a couple of messages - excited to see a new ministry venture taking shape - and get a jump start on next week.
Oh- and Michael got to talk to The Donald. The one we met in Bible college - not the other one.
