Hide and Go Seek

We've recently started Geocaching after a good friend recommended it as a fun thing to do with the sproglets. The sproglets love 'treasure hunting' and we're going to start working further out from home and planning geocaching trips whilst travelling to other places.

There's a good starter's guide here - . The 'caching community is incredibly friendly and helpful. If you'd like to add me as a friend on I'm Purplebint there too.

I currently use the app on my Iphone but I'm starting to look at dedicated GPS units as battery usage can be an issue.

We spent this morning geocaching in Bradgate Park. We're very lucky to live so close to such a beautiful place and it's been one of my favourite places since childhood.

Here's some photos from our trip out this morning. We planned to find two caches that were relatively close to each other, however there was a herd of deer enjoying the shade in the copse that contained one of the caches so we left them to it and will return another day!

Lazy Photo Update

It's slow going with garden work at the moment. Two very active sproglets and Steve's new job means it's less of a priority than it should be. We're planning a good lot of work over the easter holidays so look forward to a more intensive update then.

For now, here's some garden photos from yesterday :)
