Our Latest Treasure!

We have a new addiction, geocaching. People across the world hide treasure and log the coordinates online. Our treasure seeking princesses love it. They are brave fairy pirates seeking riches. This time they uncovered a cache of toys and a log book. Baby sister was the perfect side kick and helped uncover the stash. They traded a rhinestone buckle for a dinosaur. Captain Big Sis wanted more treasure. There was a second treasure higher up and over rocks. She had to tread close to the edge of a cliff. She was fearless and pushed past her vertigo by keeping her eye on the prize. Baby and I waited at the bottom devouring oranges and the view while Daddy and Captain Big Sis searched. She came back to us with two scratches, a splinter, a hula doll, some sweat and a ton of pride.
Geocaching is free and and spreading across the globe. It was so much fun. The master minds behind geocaching are giving me jack squat for telling you that. I just can't keep something this fabulous all to myself. I felt like a kid again full of excitement and wonder. I think our girls' confidence doubled in one day.
If you are vacationing on Oahu there are a ton of geocaching sites at top tourist spots. The two caches we found were at Makapuu point. Just remember to pack a small item to trade in your hiking pack and a pen to sign the guest book. We have started carrying a toy stash in the car for instant adventure at a moment's notice.

Huh! I've heard of this, but never thought it actually worked so easily or could be so fun. Might have to check out that site. I think my boys would love that.

We did this a couple of months ago with our daughter. It was fun! Once the baby is older, we will be doing more.

Cute. My friend Yogi geocaches all the time. He sent me a picture of a poop cache recently. Find any of those yet?

That sounds like a great idea. I can't wait to be able to do fun things like that with my little one once she gets a little older.

That sounds really fun! I always wondered what geocaching was.

(stopping by from SITS). I have been wanting to go geocaching for some time now. Since I live in a big city, there are a bunch around the area, but Im just afraid I would look dumb standing in a spot, turnin in circles, etc to try and find the cache. Maybe I should just give it a go! I like your site
