Geocaching:


So I have been asked what Geocaching is and here is an explanation. (This is the activity we did on our family reunion)

"Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment." (Taken from http://www.geocaching.com/.)

In other words you use one of these:

To find a coordinate you get from the Geocaching website and look for boxes people have left all around the world, and even in your area. It is a really fun game. You take little objects with you so that when you find a box you can take an object out of it and then leave on for another person to find. Sometimes the boxes you find just have paper in them for people to log that they have been there. You can also get clues on the Geocaching website, how to find each cach. This is really something for all ages.

If anyone wants to go with us sometime to see how it works then let us know. (My directions are probably hard to understand.) Let me know if this is confusing...

Is Anyone out there?

I was just wondering who reads my blog. I thought it might help me feel more inspired to post more often. I love you all for reading my blog. I just need some encouragement. Then I think I will have more fun postings. So give me a shout out if you read this. Thanks!

Love, Katie

Steven gets home, plus Tidwell Family Reunion!


Steven is home from his mission in Las Vegas, Nevada. He finally got to meet his first Niece. It was so fun. The Pierce family reunion was the same weekend.


We did so many fun things. This was when we went Geocaching in different groups. It was a race.



Aubrey wanted to work the GPS. She really does take after her daddy.


The Boys went fishing for over sized sturgeon. Ryan was a little over due for fishing. He was so excited!



The rest of us went garage saleing while the boys fished. We had a little white elephant gift exchange that night. It was fun to see what people found.



Aubrey did pretty well for the whole trip and everyone LOVED her!




We also went out to the river for boating. The weather was SO HOT while we were there. One of the days got over 100 degrees.



Yeah for Great-Grandpa & ma Tidwell!
