This young man BLESSES us. His unique perspective enhances our lives. It's always fun to get his take on things - from traveling sites, new campground neighbors or churches. LOL I can guarantee you will get nothing but the unvarnished truth if you ask him his opinion.
Today was BEAUTIFUL and Zander wanted to go geo-caching. We decided to call school after lunch and revisit this cache. It turns out it is a three part cache. We found one, the general area of two and came back and read that scuba gear is helpful to find the third. We have a month before we leave the area. We are determined.
|Zander with the 1st find - coordinates to the second inside|
While everyone was searching for the little box in the pipe - I found THESE. Why? Always me! I was sure they were supposed to be sleeping this time of year!
|De'Etta's find - I KNOW they are harmless - I don't want to see them anyway!|
We all found the second part of this multi-cache! For all this work, we get to count one find.
|We also found a squirrel's cache|
The boys and Michael looked for one more....
|Seriously looked - that's a flashlight|
They found where it SHOULD be - and some glass beads - but it wasn't there. Mugglers!
Stacia and Alex spent the next hour or so playing "The Game," while I fixed his birthday dinner. He chose Veggie Pot Pie. He enjoyed the texts and calls from older siblings, the cards and gifts.
|Wipeout Wii Game|
What a great sport to blow out his "pretend candles!" Michael made another wonderful ice cream cake! I can't believe a loaf pan is big enough for us now. LOL
Zander told us he was quite sure David took a nap after conquering Goliath. ::snort:: A bit too much activity for the day.....he was ready to carry on after his brief respite.
Settling down to play Wipeout!
*Note Our birthday boy's name is Alexander. For the first years of his life he was Zander. He then asked to be Alex. To Krista and I he will always be Zander. He's a good sport about it.
**Pretty sure it's time to make a new family shirt....the numbers have come off the boys' shirts....
