Today, per Jamie's preschool teacher's recommendation, we went geocaching. The Swede downloaded an app on his iPhone and we used a compass to reach, by car and by foot, the top of this nearby hill where someone had hidden a 35 mm film case filled with paper and a small pencil that we could use to log our names and the date. Jamie could give or take the actual treasure hunt (despite my singing the Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme song the entire time) but loved running around in crisp, sunny, now rare daylight. We, on the other hand, were exhilarated and did two more of the park-and-grab variety. These entailed following the compass in the car, parking, and then The Swede sending impossible-to-embarass Mara out into a populated parking lot to wander around with the iPhone, feeling up street signs and fences trying to find a film case or some other waterproof cache. Super fun, guys. We can't wait to do it again.
