Our family fun days seem to have a re-occuring theme...
We are Geocaching fools!
So much so that we bit the bullet and picked up the $10 app...ha.
There was another theme that I was trying to
press on the boy.
I wanted him to spend time looking up!
While I know it's weird that I snapped this from a
bathroom stall, the light pouring into the sky lights at high noon
was too incredible to pass up.
So much of caching is spent staring at a compass on a digital screen,
and scouring the brush
that we forget that so much of the wonder is happening over head.
We discovered these magical looking
mushrooms growing on a branch overhead.
I told him they reminded me of my favorite childhood movie,

If you are ever in John D. McArthur State Park,

It was a great little walk along the water line.
At times the trail felt a little like a jungle.
It was so lush and tropical, with that touch of
All that rain we've had did the park well.
While I was packing up our mid hike picnic, the hubs whipped
us up a letter "T" stamps for the cache logs.
He's used that same method I DIYed here.
It was such a wonderful, quick,
and easy way to step up our log game!
Can't wait for our next exploration!
