We Found the IDOL!

 Well, yesterday I told you that Tom has decided he wants to get out and hike/explore more. He meant it. This morning we were out the door on our next adventure. It was super fun. This hiking trail is only 2 miles from our place and super fun. Stella absolutely loves it!
 Emerson warmed up to it, but when we first arrived she had just woken up from a quick car nap so she wasn't thrilled. I've always LOVED the outdoors so I'm game for these new outings.
 Tom took exploring to the NEXT level. I've never heard of this, but I guess geocaching has been around for awhile. Basically, if you're familiar with the show Survivor, it's like looking for the hidden idol. Guess what?! We found our first idol/treasure. Tom had clues we were following on his phone, but it wasn't super easy or obvious.
 For this treasure you sign this scroll and then put it back in it's holder and place it back in its hiding spot for the next lucky treasure seeker. How cool is that?
 Stella was proud of our findings. She's already talking about our next treasure hunt. Luckily, Tom says there are lots around here.
 Stella wanted to keep the treasure, but was also excited about making sure it was covered just like when we found it so the next person really had to look hard at the clues.
Covered in moss. I told you it's not super obvious. Anyway, it was another fun family outing before Tom had to head to work this afternoon. I have no doubt we'll be on another treasure hunt soon.

Tom says geocashing is everywhere so if you have little thrill seekers in your family check it out. I'd love to hear about other found treasures.
