Have you done this before!?! Geocaching. I had read several blog posts about this and decided my family had to go! After a long day at work, my husband took some convincing, but I am a smooth salesperson and he couldn’t refuse!
There are over a million different geocaches or “treasures” hidden all over the world. Once you sign up on their website, you can see just how many are near you.
Then download the app and use your GPS to find the hidden gems. Sometimes there are even photos or hints to help you out. If you want to keep your geocache, you need to replace the item or items with a treasure of your own. Surprisingly, there were a bunch, just minutes from my house!
My husband was so not impressed with my geocaching idea at this point and insisted we go home. But, I explained, “Lucky for you, this last one is on our way home.” It was…sort of. He stayed in the car with the baby.
I was excited because our final treasure hunt was a special geocache, just for kids. We searched…and searched, and finally….under the dog poop collector…success! My 7-year-old was the one to find it. You would think she would be jumping for joy. Not exactly.
This is a late addition to my post: We did replace the geocache with some very cool Happy Meal toys.
