Carson opted to have a fun family day instead of a party. We incorporated his best buddy, Mitchell, of course. They had such a fun day!
We started the day with pancakes (Carson's request). My dad makes the very best pancakes. Once you get used to that nothing else compares. I just used a Krustys mix and let's just say they weren't Papa's pancakes.
In order to try and beat the 100 plus degree heat we started our next activity right away. Andrea (Mitchell's mom) and I took the boys geocaching. I have lots of friends who have been doing this and though I haven't been terribly interested it seemed like it would be fun for the boys. And actually, it was really fun. We will do it again once its at least 30 degrees cooler.
The day before I picked the different locations we would track down and I hid a geocache especially for the boys. That way we knew there would be something there because most of the places didn't have a cache there anymore. The boys both got to hold iPhone and had to navigate and tell me where to drive. They did great and had to learn real fast how to always identify "north" so they could use the map correctly.
