Adam's Fort & Geocaching...

This unseasonably warm winter has allowed for so much outdoors time for the family. It has also been the perfect weather for Adam and the kiddos next door to work on their fort in the woods. I love that Adam has the opportunity now to spend time in the outdoors, using his imagination and playing with the neighborhood kids (now that there are some!)

A few weekends back during an early morning Walmart trip, Andy couldn't resist getting Adam a full on camo outfit. I'll admit - he does look pretty perfect in it with his walkie talkie, boots, and walking stick. 

It was also the perfect outfit for Adam to do some Geocaching in. If you don't know, Geocaching is this fun thing where people hide "treasure" then mark the coordinates on an app and then you go searching for it. When you find a "cache" there is typically a notebook to sign your name and usually some kind of trinket you can take with you (stickers, crayons, marbles - that kind of thing.) We had fun searching for caches near our house and then decided we ought to create our own. Adam loved the idea and so we gathered up some treasures to put in it and he found a great spot off one of the trails near our house to hide it. So far we've had about a dozen people find it and Adam gets such a kick out of looking in his cache to see people's signatures and he's even found that a few people have taken one of his treasures but left a new treasure in its place - so fun. 

Looking forward to Geocaching on our various camping trips now - they are everywhere!
