We had a fun day in
We arrived at the boys' house when they were just returning from a bike ride.
Sam was trying out Levi's big bike with gears. Then they had some trampoline
time. David tried out the John Deere but it needed recharging so Grant helped it
back to the "garage" under the deck.
Now it was time for Maman and Papa to go out for lunch and a hike and we went to Tim Horton's in
where we had a good lunch on the patio. After lunch, Grandpa showed Sam how to
use his GPS so they could look for a
geocache nearby. The boys quickly cleaned up the lunch garbage and were off to
find the geocache. It didn't take long to find it. It was a mini-cache so we
just had to remove the note and sign the paper. That was fun! Then Sam picked
some yellow Coltsfoot flowers for Bill - Bill told him they were a sign of
Then they travelled to the
covered bridge for another geocache. Sam led us to it again. It had a strong
magnet holding it down and took some muscles to remove from its hiding pace. It
was another mini-cache. We signed the paper and put the cache back in its
secret hiding place while David enjoyed picking up small stones and throwing
them down into the river.
We decided to hike to the
bakery while Grandpa would drive there. The kids had so much fun playing in the
ditches and picking cattails Grandpa got tired waiting and walked to meet us.
Grant's airplane rides were popular too. Grandpa told us about some noisy wood
frogs he heard so we all checked them out in a large pond. There were several
frogs and we spotted some black frog eggs in the water. Sam and David tried
crossing a small creek on some boards. It was a good time outdoors. When Sam
got home he planted some cattail seeds he had saved in the nearby ditch along
Chemin de la rivière.
