Happy Canada Day!

What beautiful weather we had today! Perfect for a holiday, and far too nice to spend indoors. So we loaded up the GPS and headed out to do some geocaching with the whole family! We did 5 caches in all, and found a pleasant surprise at our last stop. It was in a beautiful park with a playground and a splash pad (in Lambeth). So after we found the cache, the kids cooled off in the splash pad and played in the park before we headed home for supper. And the best part was that they got to go in the water with their clothes on!!!
Now they are outside playing and having watermelon while we wait for it to get dark enough to head out for fireworks!!
Coming back from the first geocache. Natalie and I stayed in the van, it was too overgrown for her - we would have lost her!!

Trying to figure out where to cross the creek at Cache #2

Deanna found #3 inside the guard rail!
Cache #4 inside a "hollow elephants nose"
#5 was just off this boardwalk.

And finally, the park and splash pad!

Natalie always has to try to drink the water :o)

We'll have to do this geocaching thing when you guys come over! It sounds like fun.

Oh yes, we are indeed! Art already has it loaded. There's one in Kilcoursie even! And some on the islands, so we'll have to get Harpert involved-we'll need his boat!
