I am excited that the weather has turned the corner and the cold days are behind us. My kids love to get outside and run and play and act like kids. We are always on one adventure or another either to a local park or on a trip. As long as we are together as a family, the destination is just the icing on the cake. We have a ton of gorgeous parks near our house and we take the kids there as often as we can. I love watching them run, swing, jump, pretend and just blow off stink and have fun. One activity we have been doing together as a family is geocaching. We are the MedeirosMedley and you can read about our first geocaching adventure here as well as our next adventure here. If you are not familiar with geocaching, it is a real live outdoor treasure hinting adventure for your family using a GPS device. Your group follow a set of GPS coordinates and look for a geocache (container) that has been hidden at that location. We have had some great fun trying to figure out how to get to the location and where the geocache may be hidden. If you are going to geocache with your family, you want to take one of the products from Magellan GPS.
