Weekend Recap: National Geocaching Day!

Happy Monday Friends!

How was your weekend? Our family had a great visit with my parents, and spent a good portion of the day Geocaching!

If you aren't familiar with Geocaching, it's basically a little treasure hunt with your GPS. I've been geocaching since 2006, when smart phones weren't in the hands of every person from 8 to 80.  You enter some coordinates into your gps and search for a small log, once there you sign the paper and then go into your geocaching website and log it there too! Back in the day, you needed a real hand held GPS and a notebook to jot down clues and information found on the website before you left on your adventure. Now, you can download apps on your phone and be on your way without any planning.

It goes up and down with popularity, and I even go through phases with it, BUT it's a lot of fun! My husband and I love it because it's something you can always do. If you have a day that you aren't sure what you want to do, geocaching is an essentially FREE option. Essentially you are just paying for a little gas to drive from location to location and you're good to go!

More info can be found here!

We'd planned an adventure with my parents for Saturday, and then while we were on our way geocaching I realized that it was actually National Geoaching Day! So, that was pretty exciting!



Here's a sneak-peak into our afternoon of Geocaching!
After geocaching we went and had some soft serve ice cream at a local produce stand and headed home before the afternoon thunderstorms.

How was your weekend? Have you ever been or heard of Geocaching?
