At the Island Metropark... Celeste looks perfectly fine in this picture, but she "spit it out" (puked) in the car on the way home about 15 minutes after I took this. I guess she was having so much fun, she didn't realize she was sick. I love her enthusiasm!
Geocaching (treasure hunting) with Daddy. This has been such a fun hobby for us! For those of you who don't know what it is, there are little caches hidden all over the place... usually in parks, The coordinates are listed online and you use a GPS to find them. In the cache, you'll find an assortment of treasures (usually junk) but the kids are always absolutely thrilled! The rule is you leave an item for each one you take. So the kids each get to choose one treasure, and then we try to leave church DVDs, cds, etc. We always have Jon find it first, and then he takes the kids near it, so they think they found it. :) This is a hobby that serves so many great purposes... time with family, time outdoors, good exercise, fresh air, a surprise for the kids, missionary opportunity, etc. I highly recommend it as a fun activity that can strenghthen families!
This was a 'movie at the park' night in our community to raise money for our local Police Department. We had a great time together but we only got to watch half of the movie because there was a huge thunderstorm that night, so they sent everyone home (electronic equipment and lightning... not a good combination.)
