Cousin Time

We've been spending time with Connie's kids while we're here. Catherine is a couple of years younger than Diana, and Mikael is a couple of years younger than Cat. Aaron just turned 9.

Catherine & Diana have a lot in common, and love to spend time together. Today the girls are going to use the public bus system to get around town & do fun stuff. Catherine is still not really comfortable doing that, so Diana is hoping to help her a bit. Diana has used the bus system in Eugene, and it's just one of those things you have to physically do to get used to it. They are going to the Comic Book shop, the Lazer Tag place & the mall. :)

Mikael is also out of school, so I will grab him and Connor and we'll try to find some geocaches. We'll have to be careful, since the bomb squad was recently called when a Muggle (non-geocacher) observed someone replacing a cache (*sigh*). Mikael has my older GPS, and he's been anxious to do this, but Connie hasn't had a lot of time to go out with him. I will encourage him to look for sites near places he goes with his mom. But today, we'll go to more out-of-the-way spots, since Connor isn't the best at being secretive :P

Aaron celebrated his 9th birthday last weekend, and our gift was Connor's old cowboy boots. He's been wearing them pretty much every day since he got them. :) This afternoon I'll bring him with his friend, Spencer, to Tae Kwon Do (my mom usually does it).

I don't know what we're doing tonight yet...

I'll try to post photos soon :)

The cache RBG and I placed under the bridge is pretty popular, but a sheriff saw someone under ther and thought he was caching drugs for a pick up or something. They called me because the sheriffs were going to set up a stake-out at the lake. After a few phone calls and explaining about geocaching, all was well. I think the sheriffs were looking forward to 'posing' as fishermen for the day.
