Treasure Hunt

For the Monday holiday I decided to take the girls geocaching. I knew Sarah and Chris has done this before and when I looked it up I found out that there are a ton of "caches" hidden in the Tuscany ravine area near our house. Olivia, Emily and Marcy intended to go but Olivia decided she should prepare for final exams (very mature decision) and poor Marcy woke up with an awful migraine that morning. Emily invited her friend Beth. We went to the Loonie store ($1 store in Canada - the $1 coin has a loon on it) and bought trading items and set off on a course to find three hidden treasures. It took a while to figure out the best way to use the GPS but we finally found the first one. So exciting!!!

The next two came a little easier. It worked out well that Emily spotted the first, they both worked together to find the second, and Beth found the third. We didn't get great trade items but feel good that we left some good stuff behind for the next hunters.
