No quilting today...

Yesterday I stumbled across a topic of Geocaching. I had no clue what it was. Now I do. And now I do it with the kids. It's a blast!
So yesterday I spent all day researching GPS related stuff. Today we went out and bought one (but am taking it back to upgrade to a better one tomorrow) The kids really had a great time and it was so much fun to get out and explore. There's little geocache sites all around my town, in little parks, big parks and forests. Very cool.
It's the thrill of treasure hunting. There's no big monetory value treasure. It's the thrill of hide and seek. We seeked 3 today.
We will definately be out there again.

Lee of Lala's Lovelys blog is in town with her son this weekend. I missed her call today. She's eating at a restaurant 2km from me. I cannot dare interrupt her dinner though and crash her party. Or could I? (LOL) We were going to hook up for a quickie visit. I hope she understands my fun day with the kiddies and why I missed her call. Originally I had planned to be home most of the day, but the weather was warmish and nice and well, we had purpose to get out there today! Hopefully I can meet up with her tomorrow, maybe, if her son does well in his tournament. If I don't, Lee, I hope you made it to at least one of those two quilt shops I recommended!


  1. haha I was using my GPS today too, but to get around your neighbourhood. Maybe we passed each other and didn't even know it!! I made it to Lori's. we don't play again until 3 ish Sunday so if you are up to it drop me a note and we can try again for tomorrow.

  2. I've been reading about geocaching and told my daughter about it last summer. She really wants to try it. There's an app for the iPhone so you can use it as your GPS and it has the cache locations in it. I'm glad you had fun. We need to try it!

  3. Have fun getting out there and geocaching...I do that too and love it. (a friend sent me a link to your blog when you mentioned the caching stuff)
    ...and the dinosaurs will eventually disappear from the livingroom....and you will find yourself wondering "when did my kids get so big and grown up??"

  4. Thanks for checking out my MBS tutorial. I love your space here. I appreciated your thoughts on machine quilting and even the geocaching. I'm going to check it out. Sounds interesting and fun to do with kids!

  5. I have a friend who does this all the time and have been wanting to try it out...keep us updated.

  6. Hey Andrea, thanks for this tip, I think my nephews would love this sort of thing.

  7. So glad to read your post! I have been wanting to try this with my kids -- they are 5 now, do you think they are old enough? Also, would you recommend a specific GPS? Thanks!
