All I want for Christmas is a GPS
Mister J and I tried something new today - geocaching! It's a modern-day treasure hunt game played - literally - all over the world. We joined some church friends for our first attempt, and had lots of fun. The best part about it - almost anyone can do it! Since we don't have a GPS unit, we can't do it on our own yet, but I guess you can figure out what we (well, I...) want for the next gifting occasion. I'm always looking for fun things to do outside since I'm not a naturally outdoorsy girl, and this fits the bill. I really think it'll be a great family activity for us, especially since Mister J is so interested in maps, and can't wait to introduce Big J to geocaching. Miss M isn't quite old enough to understand it yet, but that'll come soon enough. So, one brief expedition and two geocaches later, I think I'm already hooked. Now I just need a GPS.... Special thanks to the G family for letting us join them in the hunt this afternoon!
