Geocaching in Medina

We went geocaching with friends today before they took my daughter for the afternoon/evening. We had great success and found all 3 caches that were in the park! The containers were nicely filled and the kids liked picking out their treasures. Afterwards, my son and I headed out for some Mexican food and shopping. He bought his sister a whoopie cushion in preparation for April Fool’s Day 🙂

Money

Tonight was all about the money, LOL.

We started out playing a money game about adding change.

That quickly turned into conversations about money.

That led to sorting and wrapping coins. The kids guessed we had over $100. We did. After they pitched in some of their own money, we had almost $160.

Then came the spending money. They each bought a new Lego set and got to work building.
My daughter picked an “Atlantis” set:

I put in some trinkets and took out 2 cards which appeared to be about national parks, but turned out to be religious propaganda. Doh! At least the pictures are pretty.

After that, the kids played some more.

My Daughter Spent the Night At A Friend’s House

It is the first time she has ever spent the night somewhere without us other than at her grandparents’ houses.
She had a great time and didn’t want to leave when we came to pick her up. I think it was a late night for her friend’s mom though, as my daughter stayed up and chatted until the wee hours trying to get comfy enough to sleep.

Before the sleepover, we all went out to eat at the Winking Lizard and the kids tried their hands at this claw game. I love the “Play Until You Win” deal!

We also went out and attempted to find some geocaches at a nearby park, only to fail miserably…I later found out I needed to change the settings on my GPS and update it to find certain caches.

Such is life.
