Spring has sprung!

This week has been beautiful!!  The weather has been in the 60's and it's been sunny for days!!

On Wednesday, which was also St. Patricks day, we had our library program in the morning where the kids got to make a pot of gold with gold coins in it!!  Jack loved making that!!

Afterwards, we headed down to Fort Shantok to meet up with Auntie Scoot and Riley!!  We played on the playground, had a picnic lunch and walked the trail around the pond! 
Here are a few pictures from our park visit!


Yesterday, Jack and I headed out to find a new geocache that was hidden only 4 miles from our house!!  The best part?  The park where is was located had a playscape!!

When we got there, I was eager to be the 'first to find', since no one had yet discovered it, so I convinced Jack that we would play on the playscape 'soon'!!  We headed into the woods, but my iPhone's GPS isn't as accurate as our Garmin GPS and we ended up walking in circles...until I tried to carry Jack over a little muddy area and ended up about a foot deep in MUD!
Well, that sounded like a good time to go play on the playscape and have the picnic lunch I brought. 
Jack really liked this 'cave', which was really the back side of the rock had a really cool dinosaur fossil!  We decided to give the geocache another shot, and headed towards the woods again...then another geocacher pulled up, hopped out of his car and walked directly to it!  We ended up talking for a few minutes, and walked away as the 'second to find'. 

On the way back to the car, Jack spotted a snake!  I'm not really a big fan of snakes, but Jack didn't seem to be bothered by him.  I always try to look 'cool' and say things like "Wow, isn't that an awesome snake, he's really cute" and "we should really have a closer look!"  Thankfully, he was a little one!  I had to convince Jack that we shouldn't touch snakes unless Daddy Jack studied him for a few minutes and we headed out on our next adventure.

We headed to another geocache that was at a monument in Norwich for Miantonomo.  He was was a chief of the Narragansett tribe of New England Indians.  Jack made the find on this one!  He found it quickly, we signed the log and headed out to our last treat of the day......
Our last stop was Hanks Dairy Bar in Plainfield!  It was opening day and we could really go for some ice cream!!  Mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!  This is someplace where I have a feeling we will end up often!
