Consulting the GPS and getting our bearings.
Down the boardwalk.....
....and up the hill.
I loved following behind this sweet procession.
Kian stopped half way up the hill to look back and admire the ocean, seen there in the upper right.
He loves the ocean in a very cute way.
Kian found our first cache!!!
Ok, well, actually Zac found it, but he pointed the kids in the direction of the tree it was under and Kian found it then. :)
Ugh! I HATE tics! Zac looked down and saw 2 on Lissy's sweatshirt so I basically told the kids to grab a treasure and run back to the path. I was feeling pretty itchy after that!
So we moved up the path...
....and found another cache!
Oh yeah, and more tics.
All in all, the kids hiked 3 miles, 7 tics were found and removed, 6 treasures were found and loved, a good dinner out was enjoyed by a tired, happy family, great memories were made, a love for geocaching was discovered, and all the kids zonked out on the late drive home from the coast.....one while digging for MORE treasure.
