geocaching

Today was Labor Day (Sept 1). It was a very relaxing day and productive too!

I slept til 10. That was great to sleep in!

We did some house stuff and then our friends the Kaos (from Roseville) dropped by on the way home from the Bay Area. We had an impromptu potluck lunch and a fun time catching up. Ironically, we were talking about how we seem to see them more now that we have moved to Davis (as opposed to when we lived in Roseville), because they can always drop by on their way back from the Bay Area!

Wesley (the son) demonstrated an instrument called an ocarina. I never heard of it except through the video game The Legend of Zelda. (And then only because I had to edit the music for my niece’s gymnastics routine!) It is an actual instrument from Peru.

After that, the sleepies hit and the whole family conked out. Then upon waking, I gave Albert and Daniel a haircut.

Around 5ish we biked over to the Nielsen’s and all headed out on the Davis Bike Loop. It was a very big procession with a big gap in the middle. Albert and the older kids, and the other adults lagging behind to watch Gracie, who is only 7. Poor Gracie fell down and scraped up her hand and knee. We took it at a pretty easy pace til we got to Arroyo Park.

Once there, we had a picnic dinner and then Glen showed us geocaching, where we explored the area until we discovered the hidden cache (Stephen Nielsen gets the credit for the actual find). It was all very interesting. I used to love treasure hunts when I was little, and this is like a grown-up, high-tech version.

Then we celebrated the find by taking a photo and biked back home. In all we hit about maybe 3 or 4 miles of the 12-mile bike loop, but it was a lot of fun!

    Our friends Rich and Liz love geocaching. They found one in Lake Tahoe a couple weeks ago that was 12 feet under water!

    Wow! That’s nuts! Did they have to dive for it?
