We've been Geocaching for a few weeks now and having a lot of fun!
Geocache ammo can.  We've also found many containers that are tupperwear type boxes covered in camo tape and even a small fake rock.  Most geocaches are large enough to contain items to swap.  We've swapped for stickers, little kid toys, pennies from the 1940's, tumbled rocks, and kleenex. The last one was when we were walking along the pond and I started to have an allergic reaction to something and my nose would not stop running, so image how happy I was to find a small package of tissues :)
I took this picture of us at our first geocache of the evening, the ammo can was hidden between a fence and a huge bush with trees. We had to crouch down to get throught the bushes and its one of our favorite finds. 
What I love most about geocaching is the new places that we discover. Places to walk and explore that we didn't know about before. We're really looking forward to going out to the mountains to do some 'caching.

The weather has been great so we got out our little inflatable pool with Whale slide.  After some slides with the Whale we brought over the big slide and had great splashes!  Can't have a summer day finish without a cool treat. Mmm Revels!
Alyssa and Emerson took Travis' shorts and became a two headed monster :)

Waiting for the C-train to take downtown and then to the Stampede grounds.
Alyssa loves the big rides in the kid's section.
Alyssa told me that she wanted to go on this ride only with Daddy because "it'll be more fun with him"
The Corn Dog, a favorite Stampede food of mine. Aly's had her first one last month at the Cinderella play and this was Emerson's first. He couldn't believe there was a hot dog inside, haha.
Grandpa Jack and Aly.
Emerson and I.
Emerson wanted to go on almost every ride but these bigger ones still scared him a bit.
Nana and Aly had a blast and laughed the entire time.
Waiting for the Superdogs.  We have some complaints about the venue and seating, line waiting etc. The kids did as well as can be expected.
The views from the kid's ferris wheel.
Travis, Emerson, Auntie Becca and Alyssa rode the caterpillar coaster.
Alyssa had to go again on the drop ride :)
