Blueberry Picking

We picked 17 lbs of blueberries. We have consumed all of them! We ate most of them frozen and they were the best blueberries we have ever eaten!
The boys had a great time picking them.We can't wait till next year.  --emily

I've been wanting to get into geocaching for a while now.  I thought it would be a fun outdoor activity for the boys.  For those of you who may be new to geocaching, it is a recreational activity in which participants use GPS devices to hide and seek containers (or caches) anywhere in the world.  The containers typically contain little trinket treasures.  When you find the container, you can take a treasure and leave another treasure for the next geocacher. 
I downloaded a geocaching app for my iPhone, pulled together a box of treasures to leave in the caches, and we were off.  For treasure, I pulled out some old bottle cap necklaces I had made previously for another activity.  On my app, we could see that there were several geocaches right in our own neighborhood.  The boys had a great time finding the caches.  Now we keep our box of treasures in our car so that we can geocache wherever we go. --Emily
