Larry and I had been talking about taking the kids out on a "treasure hunt" for the past year. Well...we finally did it, we went out with our GPS, downloaded the coordinates in the Cold Creek area of Nevada and began our seach. We found 4 "Caches" total. It was very exciting and loads of fun, next time we go out we'll have to let the kids find the treasures. Larry and I each found two, we were like kids ourselves. It was a blast. Thank you Larry for getting the ball rolling!
We're planning on doing this again during Logan's birthday weekend in June. We will leave 0ne of the travel bugs there. Travel bugs are items (mouse, other plastic animals, etc., attached to a metal dog-tag like chain (the kind military personnel wear) with an engraved plate containing a tracking code so people can see where the item has been.
I think this will become a lasting family activity. I can't wait to go again. Not to mention it's good exercise!

15 Years Later

On Thursday, May 7, Larry and I joyfully celebrated our wedding anniversary! We decided to spend an intimate dinner together at Tommy Bahamas in Town Square, we had rum punch (tasted like the one we had in Jamaica - Appleton's Rum), Scallop Sliders (would make a meal for one), Lar had the Filet Oscar topped with lump crab and I had the Seared Ahi with the sweet chili pepper sauce (I will crave that in the future I'm sure). After dinner and a lively conversation with our waiter (he graduated with a degree in Psychology) we walked to the "fake" grass area where there was a free showing of the movie "Cars". (mental note: bring kids to this sometime) We left quickly and decided to take the Hoopdee to a wide open space where we opened up the hatch and kicked back so we could get a great view of the moon (almost full) and of the city lights. It was the perfect night, not much fuss or hoopla, just like our relationship. Here's to another 15+.
