The kids and I have gone Geocaching a few times. Lots of fun. I bought a used Garmin Etrex Legend C about a month ago and it's worked very well. It gets us to within feet of the caches.
It's a fun outdoor activity and weather permitting it can be done year round. The kids really enjoy getting out and searching for the caches. I think they just really like to play w/ the GPS receiver. It's fun to find caches in places that you might have walked/driven by hundreds of times.
Anyway, just thought I'd mention it. You might want to give it a whirl. Use the geocaching site and see what caches are in your area.

Both our kids are now in school. One in PK and the other in K. So it's not "real" school yet for both, but it's getting there. Time sure has gone by fast. Before we know it, they'll be writing term papers and going to prom. I hope we as their parents and the school system teach them how to write better analogies than these.

Ever wondered what it's like to work for google? Me either. However, they can't take over the world without your help. Really! They need your help. So to my two readers, I present you with this cool little game that allows you to label images for google. The catch is that someone else is labelling the exact same image at the exact same time and your labels need to match in order to get points. I present to you, Google Image Labeler. Go crazy.
