Geocaching on Elf Lane

Our girls learned all about geocaching!  Thanks to our community library, who provided us with a guide (thanks Darlene), GPS devices and compasses, we navigated our way along Elf Lane, and found several geocache goodies!  It was great compass review for the girls, and a perfect day to be out exploring!  Living in the mountains certainly has its benefits!  To read more about our adventures, check out our blog!  🙂

Denver Troop visits DAM for Dia de los Ninos

When the Denver Art Museum announced kids under the age of 18 would be free, we decided to jump at that! But then we discovered Dia de los Ninos, and we all got in free, so it was even a better deal!

We drove 2 hours to get there, and spent the entire day enjoying art, crafts, food and entertainment. Everyone had a great time, and out of the whole group, only 3 of us had been there before, so it was an exciting new adventure for all! We had a great time, and the kids all had fun talking about their favorite pieces there. The top three were Linda by John DeAndrea, Fox Games by Sandy Skoglund, and Night Hunter by Stacey Steers. (Interestingly, they were all 3 dimensional pieces!) What a great day!
